Philippine Costume by Jose "Pitoy" Moreno brings together a variety of clothing traditions in the Philippines, threading the story of the country's distinct cultural heritage which is manifested in its local costume. The book is arranged thematically, following a loose historical chronology from the early tapis to the clothes at the end of the 19th century, the Maria Clara, the panuelo, and the traje de mestiza, and the national costumes, the terno and the barong Tagalog.
