About The Baro

ORIGIN


The Barong Tagalog originated from the Tagalog word baro, that means “shirt,” worn by both men and women prior to Spanish colonization. They would be paired in various ways with a salaual, with a tapis for women, robes, and/or a belt.  Majority of the influence came from trades from neighboring Asian regions.


During the Spanish era, the baro evolved from common working class attire into the current Barong Tagalog that has become known as the Philippines tuxedo.


INSPIRATION


Lets be honest, the Barong is fly!  When you spot someone rocking the Philippine tuxedo, you can’t really say anything but..NICE.  Its traditional and its 100% OURS!  BUT the Barong is predominately reserved for formal events.  Imagine rocking a tuxedo to the grocery store, on your third date, or even with shorts (well some can pull it off).


We wanted to wear our Barong every where and any where.  We wanted to blend tradition with our modern day lives.  We wanted to include our KNOW HISTORY DNA into the silhouette while keeping it simple, clean, and versatile.  And now today we welcome you to The Baro.


THE BARO


Our custom cut-n-sew barong titled, "The Baro" is an every day modern day Barong that can be professional enough for the office, cool enough to wear during a date night, chill enough to rock lounging around, and formal enough for a wedding and upscale events.  Pair The Baro with jeans, chinos, slacks, or shorts.  Ladies can rock as a dress with a belt or pair with tights or biker shorts. Tuck it in or let it hang, its versatile!


DETAILS


The  Barong's iconic embroidery is beautiful and can be extravagant.  The Baro embroidery is minimal, lightweight, and is 100% KNOW HISTORY!  Legend has stated that the Spanish forced Filipinos to wear the see through Barong to reveal any hidden weapons, so we hid it for you and created the embroidery with BOLO KNIVES!  Along the embroidery we added a running set of 8 ray stars representing the Philippine sun. 



- Poly/cotton blend

- A slightly longer silhouette with a back scoop tail

The Baro is designed in the U.S. and manufactured by the great folks of the Philippines. We could have easily manufactured The Baro at fraction of the cost in China, but this directly goes to our people!  We even visited our manufacturer in the Philippines to ensure proper working conditions with no child labor and fare wages.


SIZING


The Baro is a modern fit and is true to size, but to ensure you get the correct size, please reference our size breakdowns for accurate purchase. Ladies size down.
