There's no denying that streetwear has become a legitimate style of dress, a way of life even, for many men. Collaboration sweatshirts, hot-right-now track pants, and re-released sneakers have become as covetable as that perfectly fitting suit or a resplendent cap-toe oxford.

And maybe even you, a classic dresser, want a piece of the action (or, at least, are curious about it). But take care when putting on that T-shirt embellished with all-over logos. You never want to be the guy who looks like he's trying too hard. You want to look at ease in the fashionable coolness that these clothes project.

Here, in Manila, there's one celebrity who appears to be doing it right. From extra long industrial belts to trippy circle lenses, the coolest ugly sneakers to the hypest collab merch, Vice Ganda, the host, comedian, actor, and fictional superhero, shows you how to make the anything-goes rules of streetwear work.

Here's how he does it:  

1| Limited and rare are integral to streetwear, and nothing says yours-only than a deconstructed denim great coat.

2| Only in the world of streetwear is logo overdose not only fine but encouraged. Here, all the hot-right-now brands are repped, including the holy marriage of maison Louis Vuitton and Supreme.

5| Vampire Priest Club Kid Rave Star. Okay. Go.

7| Taking cues from K-Pop stars, Vice knows that, yes, face masks are fashion.

8| Accessory game on point: yellow lenses, LV x Chapman Brothers messenger, foil-green Gucci sneaks.
