Andres Bonifacio made his own the white camisa de chino and red pants. That is his maangas katipunero swag. Our national hero Jose Rizal remained classy, all the way to his death, with his gentleman’s clothing. In hundreds of historical books, countless documentaries, thousands of paintings, they were both depicted wearing their ensembles. They fought in style.
In this Independence Day Special, we honor our heroes by highlighting local indie brands that can dress the regular Juan in style. We must remember what our heroes did. We also must fight whatever personal battles we have, in indie style. These are little-known independent brands that allow you to stand out in a crowd.
