I bought my first Bench tee-shirt at the SM Boutique Square in Makati. It was white in the coolest of cotton with doodles of different flags printed on it. Back then, everyday wear for me were white tee-shirts, khaki shorts and suede loafers. Twenty-five years after and three sizes larger, I updated my tee-shirt look, pairing them with dark jeans and cardigans. I always like it that way, simple and fresh, and a little artsy.
