Baybayin “Usa” snapback now available at

“Baybayin Usa”, Usa means 1 in Bisaya and Baybayin (incorrectly known Alibata) is the writing system used in the Philippines prior to Spanish colonization. Placing the ancient script is a perfect combination of the old and new representing cultural identity through style. The crocodile skin isn’t just for fashion but has a direct connection to indigenous Philippine belief systems and it’s not about the 21ft Buwaya that was found in the southern islands. Crocodile patterns have been used in textiles, swords and tattoos. Read more about it at Pera Daly’s website.

I’ll leave it up to you on how much you want to pay. Even if you make the price $0.00, you will be emailed a link to you to download.

Why am I doing this? I want to experiment to see if the Filipino community reacts to donation products. I think that people in general are generous enough and will donate a fair price to cover for those who cannot afford to give. Salamat

EVENT: Ka logo hat launching 10/8


My Ka logo hat collaboration with Wipcaps will be launching 10/8 8PM @ Urban Athletics Level 2 Greenbelt 3. Why 8PM, it’s a party…

On top of the crazy party, we have one more treat for you in form of a special drop. As part of the WIP Caps HeadStart series, Urban Athletics will get a HeadStart on the ‘Ka’ release!

Starting this Saturday and for the next 2 weeks, the Christian Cabuay x WIP Caps ‘Ka’ collab will ONLY be available at Urban Athletics before it will be available elsewhere. You too should get a HeadStart and cop the ‘Ka’ cap at Urban Athletics!


Buy the hat? Send me a photo of you wearing it at with the subject Ka Wipcaps and I’ll draw you your initials (1st and last name) in Baybayin and send it via email. Limited to 1st 50

Starting this Saturday October 8, WIP will be stocked at Urban Athletics (or uA for short). There are two good reasons why you should make it down to uA this Saturday.

First-up, uA will be kicking-off their in-store party series called Pulse Saturdays. For the first edition of Pulse Saturdays, they are featuring the KINGS ON DECK mixtape by DJ Scratchmark and our boy and WIP flag bearer MC Dash. Some special live performances and lots more cooked-up. So be sure to check it out!
