    Is anyone else here Filipino, Filipina, or Fil-Am? Dad's from Claveria, Mom's from Iriga City, and I'm from Columbia, SC.

    I'll go out on a limb and guess that berlin report, Souper, GoSurface, and bbaquiran are also Pinoy.

    I'm just curious.

    I once dated (messed around with) a girl that was half Filipino.

    I remember seeing an MTV feature in the '90s where he talked to his mother in Tagalog. I know a couple of other filipino SF members that just lurk.

    Born in the USA, raised in Manila, and now I'm back in the States for college. I always claim Filipino wherever I go though.

    I'm curious, how many SFers are actually based in the Philippines? What's it like trying to style when it's so damn hot/everyone else is dressed so horribly/tackily? Someone told me that the Crocs shop in Serendra is the best selling crocs store in the world. Tangina shit!

    Not flip, but I know how the words "chicken nut bread" can go together in a sentence, and I shop at Eagle Rock Plaza.

    Aside from underwear and t-shirts, I buy almost all of my shoes and clothes online.

    Really? It's a tiny 3mx10m store. It's always packed with customers, though. Many of them buy 3-4 pairs at a time.

    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.

    Re: Defacto. They're very near where I work. I will probably drop by and check them out soon, just to satisfy my curiosity.
