The Barong tagalog is the official formal garment of the Philippines.   Woven with hand-loomed pineapple leaf fibers, it is a lightweight, transparent garment worn at weddings, black tie events, political gatherings, movie premieres, etc.  Before the Barong was adopted as the formal attire of the Philippines, legend stated that the Spainards forced Filipinos to wear the Barongs to prevent them from hiding any weapons through the translucent fibers.  Filipinos were also forced to wear them untucked to distinguish between ruling classes.

    I love wearing barongs. Kind of uncomfortable around the neck and cuffs though, but it’s so slick.
