I received it as a gift during our latest Kris Kringle in the office. It was actually a requested gift and I am very grateful that my wish has been granted. This is also my very first Team Manila shirt and I am very very glad to start having one for I am planning of buying more shirts from this designer/manufacturer for myself.
For those who hasn't heard, Team Manila Graphic Designed Lifestyle shirts are created by a Philippine-based graphic design studio. Most of its products are drawn from the inspirations representing the urban lifestyle and culture - from graphic interpretations of national icons to everyday life on the streets. Simply put, most products intend to remind everybody of the unique qualities of everyday Filipino life. This is a good thing since most Filipinos have been more concentrated on buying imported goods that sometimes they do not appreciate Philippine originals anymore.
I think this Team incorporates anything and everything. And put them into prints!
As for me, through Team Manila I can express my nationalism in my own simple ways.
