Keeper Vest "Brown"
While it’s quite challenging to find the literal translation, “You’re quite dressed up” might be the closest. Usually the phrase is also charged with a negative connotation of being overdressed — at least from the perspective of the one saying it.
From personal experience, I normally hear it whenever the outfit is more considered than the common Filipino casual: a simple top, usually a t-shirt, with basic bottoms.
This idea was the foundation of this latest garment, the Keeper Vest — a part of our ongoing inquiry on finding our version of “Naka-porma”.
