Daughter #1 called me up yesterday asking how much would a custom-made Barong Tagalog for Ethan would cost. I said the last time I bought a jusi-pinya clothe in Divisoria it cost me 550 pesos. The tailor charged me 800 pesos. If I add in the gasoline, toll fees, parking fees to the lot, the total would be somewhere in the vicinity of 2,000 pesos. I told her I saw quality Barong Tagalog for kids sold at one high-end store and it cost 1,200 pesos only. Why the Barong Tagalog, I asked. Ethan is due to be a ring bearer this April and the attire is, of course, the Barong Tagalog. I wish, for a change, that wedding couture for little boys would be a tuxedo. I can just see Ethan now... strutting like a formal penguin.

  1. Hi there,

    I agree with you, Barong Tagalogs in Divisoria are so cheap I am actually leaning to buying some for my son and hubby before we go to the US.

    For kids' tux, you need to find a good tailor for that. I had my son's tux made by a local tailor in Iloilo when he was just six months old. The tailor did a great job with the tux :-)

    Good luck.
