Garment Care

Caring for your garment is key to its durability. Find the fabric of your garment below to learn how to care for it properly.

 

JUSI:

Dry Clean is allowed, but hand wash is best.

Do not machine wash or wring (twist) the garment.

Here are easy steps for hand washing:

  • If stained, remove the stain promptly after it has been formed. Use a soft toothbrush or a cotton ball to scrub away any stubborn stains with a mild stain remover.
  • Soak and wash the garment in lukewarm (preferably soft) water and mild detergent. Lift the garment up and down from the water. Again, never wring or twist. Gently rinse all soapy residue. Roll in a towel to start the drying.
  • Air-dry on a plastic or wooden hanger. Re-shape the garment with hands. Do not use metal hangers to avoid rust. Remove the garment while it is still light damp so the shape can be smoothened out.
  • Iron inside-out at low to medium heat while the garment is still damp or use steam. If ironing the front of garment, use a press cloth over any embroidered or painted parts. An alternative is a steamer when the garment is dry on a hanger.
  • Store in pest-resistant containers or closets. If covered, use a breathable cloth material. Do not use plastic because it causes mold.

Size Charts

Please refer to the size chart below. Our barongs and Filipiniana items are authentically made in the Philippines and Filipino sizes are usually one size smaller than most Western sizes.

The measurements are of the garment(s) and NOT the person wearing the barong. The Barong is usually a loose fit around the Chest, Waist, and Hips with small allowances on the Collar, Cuff, and Armhole. 

BW TIP: If you do not have a measuring tape, use any safe wire or string, mark your measurement with your finger, and check the length with a ruler.

Please do NOT give us measurements for custom orders based on the size charts below. Refer to our Measurement Guide instead for custom order barongs.
