…these pretentious Obey-ing swaggerific Supreme teenybop hypebeasts are really only of the Filipino-American (SoCal) variant. Native Filipinos have a very different style as opposed to the North American ones.
My month-long trip in the Philippines last summer made me realize that native Filipinos rarely care about how many pairs of shoes they have, and aren’t even aware of terms ‘fitteds’ and ‘snapbacks’. Heck, they’re happy with whatever they can get. They value the simple things in life where as the other bunch flaunt obnoxiously and materialistically about how much swag they got.
It cringes me until no end when these Filipino-Americans boast about their national Pinoy pride because I can’t help but feel that they’re giving the Filipino culture as a whole a distorted representation.
