The official national costume of Filipino men is the barong tagalog.
The upper garment of the boy in the picture is a barong. It is worn over a Chinese collarless shirt called camisa de Chino. The boy is also wearing the traditional wide-brimmed hatsalakot, which is usually made of rattan or reeds.
The Barong Tagalog is the official Filipino national attire. Its name comes from the phrase “Baro ng Tagalog” (dress of the Tagalog people).
It has a similar cut to a men’s dress shirt but comes in varied natural fabrics such as Jusi, Pina, Abaca, Organza, and the more recent Pina-Jusi. It can be long or short-sleeved with various collars, colors, embroideries, and appliques. It is predominantly worn by men, but there are now female variations as well.
The loose fit of being untucked makes it suitable for the hot climes of the tropical islands of the Philippines.
A camisa de Chino (also spelled kamisa de tsino) is a collarless Chinese shirt worn under the barong Tagalog, the national costume of the Philippines for men. Spelling variations: camisachino, kamisa tsino, kamesatsino
