the great classic cotton shirt

Posted in artifacts, fashion, lifestyle with tags , , , on September 9, 2008 by mijodo

There is nothing like wearing the classic cotton shirt. Whether it is v-neck, round neck, or with collar, whether it is tapered or loose, whether it is in pure white or black or the more fanciful colored one – no other shirt gives you that relaxed and ready to go (even possibly, ready to sleep!) comfort wear.

The classic cotton shirt is almost available everywhere, and yet the shirt does not go out of style. It may evolve a little bit, but still the simple cotton tee will never be yesterday’s fashion. Go to the mall to purchase one or go to your brother’s closet to borrow one. If it fits then it works.  And if one needs to get shirts at wholesale prices whether as a business venture or for other needs, then check out the reliable Culex Enterprises (telephone number # 2448366) and look for Raquel.

Whether one is in camisa de chino, in sando, or even in sweatshirt, the cotton fiber gives out that breathable, non-sticky, lightweight feeling. Be chic. Be cool. Be in cotton.

fashion salvo

It is another round of Philippine Fashion Week for all style afficionados. Last night, with the kind help of Davao clothes genius, Ronan Opina, I was able to get inside SMX and take a sneek peek on what could be fashionably exciting for months to come. Twelve were able to present their collections. They were Benjie Panizales, Butz Fuentes, Catherine Cavilte, Czarina Villa, Emi Alexander-englis, Happy Andrada, Jerome Lorico, Nholie Pilapil, Nicky Martinez, Noe Reyes Nolie Vineza, and Ronan Opina. It was a mixed bag of ethnic inspired, retro, avantgarde, couture, and a lot of in-betweens. Pretty interesting.
