Lol, I'd believe that. Manila's full of people with too much money and too little taste. Sneakers and hypebeast stuff is just getting big there so I can just imagine the kind of style disasters soon to come...
Also, anyone have any experience with DeFacto jeans, that bespoke denim shop in Mile Long? At first I thought they were just another Viktor-type place that catered to the flashy/tacky crowd but I saw that they got union specials on their multiply site, and that piqued my curiosity. Sent an email to the owner and he seems to know his shit about denim.
The proof, of course, is in the product. Anyone had a pair of jeans made by them? What do you guys think/have you heard? I chanced upon a few yards of cone mills selvage and I'm wondering whether or not they'd be able to do a good job with it. Let me know your thoughts.
