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.

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.

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.
