Let me just pause for a moment and ask, what in blazes in going on with SM Department Store? First, this straw trilby, and now this beautiful chambray shirt? It's from a brand named Baleno and if it sounds familiar, you may have found it in some ukay-ukay shops before (I know I have!). As for me, I scoured these babies in SM Department Store after I chanced upon them in a Garage Magazine spread.
I must say, the fit is amazing and the fabric's just as light as it needs to be. The button-down collar detail is also a fine addition and if you read ze blog often, you know how much I love those. Needless to say, because of the setting of purchase, it's damn cheaper than it's more heralded counterparts - something to the tune of P699 a piece. Just imagine, you can buy 5 of 'em in place of the chambrays Gap is offering now! At least you should probably get two, though, since it comes in two chambray shades. I tell you SM, if you keeps carrying this shiz, I'll keep on coming back for more. So keeps stepping your game up now, mmmkay?
