Greeting Barbarian! It is summertime is here in the Philippines, it is hotter and more humid than the usual. People are often running towards the beach or staying home within the comfort of the air conditioner. As I write this, it is 34 degrees Celsius sitting my ass at the counter of my mom’s shop. Cigarette on one hand and an ice cold drink on the other, contemplating about life’s great mysteries. Climate has always been a limiting factor in what to wear. Colors and what type of fabric plays a far greater role in your wardrobe.
Summertime outfit usually consists of light-colored and lightweight fabrics, usually of breathable construction. Avoid heavy fabrics that would prevent sweat from evaporating. Pick something that would offer better protection against the sun.
With those taken into consideration, here is the Outfit of The Month for April:
Shoes: White Canvas Sneakers
Canvas Sneakers are ideal for summer because of its breathable construction. Lucky for us there is a wide variety of canvas sneaker on the market. Thou, I would advise staying away from clunky designs that could ruin your silhouette. Go for a more classic design like a Converse Chuck Taylor or a Vans Old Skool, or Adidas Men’s Matchcourt RX.
Pants: Khaki Chino or Corduroy Pants
Time to give those dark washed jeans some rest. Opt-in wearing some light-colored chino or corduroy pants.
Now, I would like to take this part to tell you about my recent discovery on the internet! It’s the Honey App! It is a browser extension that can help you save money when you go online shopping. It works by looking for relevant coupon code when you shop online. No need for hunting down coupon codes and trying them one by one. Not to mention that the Honey App is FREE!

Shirt: Plain White T-shirt
As I discussed from one of my previous posts, a plain white t-shirt is essential to any man’s (or woman’s) wardrobe. It is functional yet cheap, summertime is the ideal season to rock the plain white tee.
Outwear (Optional): Light-washed Jean Jacket
Let us finish off our outfit with a removable layer, a light-washed jean jacket. Every stylish man must know how to layer. It is a step up from a plain and boring to something sexy. Jean Jackets are ideal because of its loose construction. It is something that can be worn when it got chiller and can be taken off when it got warmer.
There you have it, My suggestion for the month of April. A warm-weather ensemble ideal for a warm climate. It is a casual outfit with a light and breezy vibe to it.
With the right selection and a better understanding, one can still be stylish despite the weather.
So, my faithful Barbarian remember to stay cool and stay awesome this summer!
