It's almost a cliché to take home a T-shirt as a souvenir, but not if it's designed by Team Manila. Their fun, eye-opening, often cheeky visual representations of the Philippine capital's street culture allow you to wear a piece of the city on your sleeve (or rather torso). Recently released tees include a shirt depicting skewered meats with the slogan IT'S BETTER ON A STICK, a POST NO BILL collage featuring José Rizal (the design team's favored icon), and a playful "Pak-1" tee showing a just-bitten watermelon slice and the words KEEPING MANILA JUICY (pakwa means watermelon in Tagalog). Stockists are located at major malls, including Greenbelt, Glorietta and Robinson's Galleria. See for addresses.
