19 Jan Juan on Street Style in the Philippines: Pope Francis T-shirts Edition
JUAN SAYS: For the ones who can’t reach or are prohibited to reach the Pope, this is probably one way to show their love and support for the coolest Pope. Pinoys are known to be street smart, resourceful and that we make the most out of every situation. This is one way for enterprising Pinoys to earn a few pesos while the Pope is here; a way of entrepreneurship for the tiniest of the tiny businesses in our country. Sabi nga ni Juan: “kung ‘di ka kayang tulungan ng gobyerno, gagawa ng sariling paraan ang Pilipino.”

In the first full day of a five-day visit to the Philippines, Pope Francis will meet with families at the Mall of Asia Arena, a huge five-level glass venue that seats 20,000. While waiting for the pontiff to arrive, Manila-based photographer Tammy David noticed people wearing T-shirts designed around the pope’s visit.
She posted a series of photos on her Instagram account showcasing almost two dozen different T-shirts.
