By Sabrina Skerston and Ellen C. McKinney


The barong tagalong, also known as the barong Filipino or simply the barong, is the national men\u27s shirt of the Philippines. It is a long-sleeved, collared shirt, buttoning halfway down the front. Traditionally, the barong is made of white, transparent cloth with embroidery around the buttons. The shirt is usually woven out of pina fiber, which is harvested from the leaves of the pineapple plant
