Rep. Quimbo, one of my favorites.
Photos do not belong to me.
More on Senator Bongbong. You might not agree with his politics nor his presidential ambitions, but it seems that the man can do no wrong in the sartorial sense.
Have a dictator for a father. Acquire bitches in London.
hello, mr. senator-judge.
Let’s take a break from the Corona impeachment for a while and focus on a former president who had been the subject of another impeachment trial ten years ago.
Look how far he has fallen from swagdom, how he likes his stuff monochromatic these days. Back in his heyday, this man knew how pull off a suaveness that was signature Joseph Estrada.
Atty. Judd Roy, wearing double-breasted jackets like a boss.
The coat type actually looks appropriate for his big frame. Notice the peeping red socks, too.
While it seems like the younger and more dapper gentlemen of the prosecution is winning it out on the wardrobe department, there’s one man from the defense—except Justice Cuevas—who seems to be up for the challenge.
Meet Atty. Joel Bodegon, a UP educated lawyer who served with the Office of the Solicitor General. Amidst the ties and barongs we see in the day-to-day impeachment proceedings, this man introduces some quirkiness through his bow-ties (clip on or not, give him props for originality) and his round Potter-like spectacles.
Yes, another one of Spot.ph’s impeachment eye candies. Rep. Miro Quimbo is part of the prosecution team, and he represents the 2nd District of Marikina in the 15th Congress.
Looks like the man and striped suits were made for each other.
Spot.ph recently named his as one of the ‘eye candies’ of the impeachment trial. He shares his father’s name and is clearly following his father’s footsteps, but Rep. Juan Edgardo “Sonny” Angara of Aurora is anything but a clone of the elder one.
Just look at this outfit—it has “GQMF” written all over it.
If truth be told, it’s this guy who inspired me to do this blog in the first place.
Congressman Tobias “Toby” Tiangco is a first-term representative from the Lone District of the City of Navotas who testified as a witness for the defense regarding the alleged influence exerted by Malacañang to pressure lawmakers into voting for the articles of impeachment against Corona.
What made today’s headlines though wasn’t his testimony, but his spiky silver hair and the fact that he took off his shoes inside Senate halls. His suit that day looks well-composed. The teal tie-light blue dress shirt-gray suit ensemble (notice the jacket lapel!) definitely takes the cake. It looks like he was using cuff links too.
His outfit yesterday doesn’t seem like a fluke, either. The man has serious swag.
In a sea of veteran politicians and legal luminaries, it is easy to dismiss Niel Tupas Jr. as the saling pusa of the proceedings. With his skinny ties, lithe frame, and boyish haircut that remind us of that one boy we know who always gets their hair done by the old neighborhood barbero, Tupas comes off as someone you can easily pushover.
With the prosecution’s lackluster performance, Tupas constantly takes one for the team as he is their captain. An attorney for only 12 years with half of that span of time spent as a politician, he is always barraged by criticism that he isn’t ready to do the kind of lawyering required to convict a Chief Justice, much less lead the prosecution team.
Despite this, his academic records reveal that he was one of the brightest in his batch, graduating Magna Cum Laude in his undergraduate years and landing a spot in the top 20 of his law school batch in the University of the Philippines.
