Patches and embroidery continue to dominate the style scene, and if you're fascinated with these embellishments, you can take it up a notch with one-off designs made just for you. Here, three great local resources where you can take your favorite trucker jacket, dad cap, and other pieces to the next level. 

1| Auggie Fontanilla

Auggie Fontanilla, co-founder of Pilipinas Street Plan and The Clothing and an artist represented by the Pablo Gallery, draws inspiration from Manila, Americana-style tattoos, and religious imagery to grungy and irreverent effect. A jacket that's fully embroidered or handpainted starts at P8,500 and usually takes around two weeks, from conception to completion. Look out for the cool details in his work.

2| The Art Department

After making those Pokemon jackets for Vice Ganda and Maine Mendoza, The Art Department has now expanded its services to one-off designs and branding. You can commission a personal logo to be stamped on your apparel using heat-transfer vinyl. Headed by Eugene David, art director of Preview magazine, its aesthetic is graphic and clean.

3| Bryan Sochayseng



Bryan Sochayseng, one-half of the cool kids of The Starving Artist, got his start by painting shoes and then gained popularity by just word-of-mouth. His works are usually bold and painterly, reflecting a fondness for abstraction and texture. A thousand bucks can get you a simple design on a dad hat or a pair of sneakers. Prices go upwards of P3,000 for a jacket.
