Talking is for commoners.

 

(SPOT.ph) When you can’t say it and you really want to: Wear it. Statement shirts are a great way to invite conversation about something really important to you...and they’re also great for instigating speculation. Our eyes usually give people we see on the streets wearing one a quick glance (remember that time "Certified Sex Instructor" was everywhere?) and when celebs throw one on-well, what else are we if not the target market for their personal drama?

Senator Bong Revilla

Statement: "’The Lord is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me?’ Psalm 118:6."

Passive-aggressively said to: People present during his arrest for allegedly misappropriating his PDAF.

Is this a shirt for you? We can’t imagine needing to declare this, unless there’s a mountain (or a "truckful") of evidence against you. However, you can always cheerfully declare your love for the divine being of your choosing.

Hoax: Celebrities for Vhong Navarro

Statement: "Justice for Vhong Navarro."

Passive-aggressively said to: This was the handiwork of a very dedicated fan, who Photoshopped a shirt (that was never made) onto different celebrities to make it seem like they’re absolutely behind Vhong Navarro after he was implicated in a strange incident in a condo.

Is this a shirt for you? The fact that the authorities are on this case like they’re on a CSI Philippines special renders this shirt, fake or not, unnecessary.
