Vintage Photo of Young Filipino boys by the River in Bacaug, Negros Oriental

Young Filipino boys by the river in the province of Negros

Popular among Pinoy boys back in the day are all-white ensembles. High-waisted pants, shirts tucked in by thin belts. The dashing boy on the right sports a medium brim Panama Style Hat or colonial style hat which is perfect for tropical weather. Filipinos usually associate such hats today with lolos or "grandpas". I'm glad that hats are fashionable again in the Philippines, thanks to Justin Timberlake, you can walk around Manila and not get stared down for your fashionable head gear.

Swimwear are usually shorts and white sando.
