Barong Tagalog is properly referred to as the Barong Tagalog (dress of the Tagalog) and it cannot be contacted to simply Barong since that would be equivalent in English to saying “He is wearing a dress of “. The word Barong, one realizes, means “dress of”.If one wishes to shorten the phrase, then it would be Baro or “dress”. Yes, the Barong Tagalog is a dress, a garment, a coat in itself. It is not a “shirt”. If it were, then it would need a coat or a jacket over it to quality as formal wear and would have to be worn tucked inside the trousers. Barong Tagalog can be worn at formal and informal occasions, for day and evening wear, for business and at leisure.
