1st Draft Manila Clothing: Looking Good and Comfy in Pampanga

Wazzup Pilipinas!

One year and few shirt designs later, 1st Draft Manila Clothing continues to grow bigger than ever with fabulous shirt designs that are themed with Filipino culture.

I bumped into these guys at one of the event where I was invited to cover as a blogger and their shirts designs are just too good to ignore. You'll definitely want to have a closer look as the designs are good to look at from afar and much better appreciated when up close.

The designs include Sabong (a combination of cockfighting and Alibata/Baybayin ancient Filipino writing), Novena (an act of pious Roman Catholic devotion consisting of repeated prayers), Supremo (featuring Andres Bonifacio), Kuwentong Barbero (as a tribute to barber rumors), Litson, Balut (the foreigner-dreaded hard boiled egg with partially-developed chick), Pacman and Fight of the Century (featuring our Pambansang Kamao).

We got to try four designs for our Wazzup Pilipinas five-man team which covered the 20th Philippine International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta in Clark, Pampanga on February 11 to 14, 2016.

The team wore the shirts on the first day of the event, but on the way to the venue a day before, I already gave each member of the team their shirts. Jayson got the the Balut, Peter got the Novena, Jimmylyn got the Kuwentong Barbero and Allan got the white shirt with the bestseller Supremo design. I also got the Novena design as I think those are the ones available in Extra Large sizes.

Most of the shirts we got were ed in color but I have to admit that it's way better than the traditional black or white. How I wish we could get them to design a customized Wazzup Pilipinas shirt so we can have a uniform design and be identified easily as the Wazzup Pilipinas team.

I'm sure there will be a lot more events where the team can get together again for another collaboration so it would be awesome to have our own Wazzup Pilipinas shirt!

Still, we look pretty amazing wearing the 1st Draft Manila Clothing shirts. They don't only make us look good, they make us feel so comfortable even under the scorching heat of the sun.

We have lots of shots taken wearing the shirt at the Philippine International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta, and  also wore them at some of the restaurant tours we had in Pampanga.

According to their Facebook page, they now have a new design they call Siklista that's great for biking and fitness enthusiast. Silista is Tagalog word for Cyclist featuring an image of a skull-faced biker.

  1. It was very interesting to read your post, because I am also interested in all sorts of fashionable novelties in the world of clothing. I like to shop on weekends with my husband. But now we cannot actively visit shopping centers because of the restrictions in our city. And recently I started reading lovelywholesale reviews so I can order clothes online. The most important thing is not to be confused with the size of the clothes.

  2. "Good to read out such good post. I think, without encountering durability issues. One of the lone industrial applications of linen wholesale is in the production in bulk. Linen is produced in larger quantity that is why it is also cheaper than cotton for the retail customers.
