Filipino-American combo guard Jordan Clarkson finally got his barong in time for tonight's Asian Games opening ceremony in Indonesia.

After reportedly trying out six different pieces, it appears that he's ready to go as the Philippines' flag-bearer.

 

Likewise, the entire Pinoy basketball squad in the Asiad are rocking the same tops with 'sarimanok' embroidery for that uniquely Filipino touch to the national attire.

Stanley Pringle, Paul Lee, Beau Belga, James Yap, Raymond Almazan, and Maverick Ahanmisi chose to pair their barongs with sneakers, while the rest of the crew kept it classic. 

The Philippine team is coming off a huge 96-59 victory over Kazakhstan last August 16 in their opening game. 

Clarkson wasn't able to suit up in their first game, but he's good to go when the squad faces off against China on August 21.
