Barong under shirt
The Barong is known as the national dress of the islands known as the Philippines. It started out as indigenous clothing then supposedly turned into a tool of colonialism and then ironically into “national pride”. One of the characteristics of the Barong is that it’s largely transparent to supposedly prevent the wearer from hiding weapons as a submission to colonial power.
