Terrence Romeo: Fashion Icon

The Bro is simply not messing around when it comes to his outfits.
Terrence Romeo is slowly becoming a fashion icon in the PBA.
You can even argue that he is THE fashion icon in the PBA. The Bro is simply not messing around when it comes to his outfit.
On Thursday for the annual PBA Press Corps awards night, Terrence took it to the next level and traded his Versace shirt for a rather sharp light gray suit with a sleek black shirt.
His quote unquote shoes? Yeah it's those expensive Gucci leather slippers. His belt? Hermes. His watch? His favorite from Audemars of course.
The Bro's fashion evolution has been drastic. For the same award's night last year, he was wearing a simple printed shirt underneath a black jacket and some black cuffed pants to go along with black Cole Haans.
Now, the Bro is trying to set standards like no other PBA player has done before him.
"Inspiration ng outfit ko? Siguro para maiba naman. Mahilig kasi akong mag-explore, mag-experiment ng mga bago ngayong outfits so ito naisip ko ngayon," Romeo said for his outfit of the day.
"Actually ito naisip namin ng fiancee ko so hopefully, ma-consistent ko yung image na ganito," he added.
MADE IN ITALY
Terrence has picked up Gucci as of late especialy for his choice of footwear off court.
Aside from his leather slippers, he's been spotted wearing Gucci leather sneakers in all forms. Low cut, mid cut, white mid cut, black low cut. You name it, Romeo probably has it.
"Siguro nakakahiligan ko lang talaga. Lahat naman ng tao may type at may mga pagkakataon na may nakakahiligan," Romeo said on his Gucci pick ups.
"Kaysa naman mahilig ka sa hindi magandang bagay, bakt hindi ka maging mahilig sa isang bagay na alam mong makakadagdag sa personality mo, makakadagdag ng respect, at the same time you inspire some people or players na sana someday, ganun din."
"Basketball, hindi naman lahat puro basketball, kailangan ine-enjoy mo yan. Kailangan yung mga tao sa paligid mo napapasaya mo, nabibigyan mo sila ng idea or napapaisip sila kung ano yung mga ginagawa mo," he added.
The cost of these items are not cheap. Terrence pays some big money for his purchases.
However, the Bro is not one to be concerned about the total cost of each individual piece or ensemble.
"Nako ako hindi ko talaga pine-presyuhan yung mga damit ko. Ako ang gusto ko lang, pag nakikita ako ng mga tao, presentable ako pag tinignan. Para mukha ka namang tao alam mo yun [pero] maganda yung may swag ka, nandoon yung swag mo," he said.
"Minsan lang tayo dadaan sa pagiging bata at sa pagiging basketball player, so bigyan din natin ng chance yung porma natin kahit papaano kasi pagtanda naman natin di naman masusuot yung mga gusto natin di ba," Terrence added.
MONEY MATTERS PART 2
But before you bash Terrence and call him out for being an unresponsible shopper, do know that he's on top of his finances.
Not that it's anyone's business to look into his accounts, just be content that the Bro is not about to lose all his money just because he buys all of these designer stuff.
"Actually maraming nagsasabi na baka daw ma-bankrupt ako. Yung pera ko, laging yung mga binibili ko, yung sobra sa kita ko. Nagi-invest ako ng mga business [pero] secret muna yun business na yun," Romeo revealed.
"Yun ang priority ko. Like what older basketball players said, hindi habang buhay magba-basketball ka so habang ganito na maayos yung kita mo, mag-invest ka so yun ang ginagawa ko. Nagi-invest ako para hindi lang ako umaasa sa kinikita ko sa Globalport. May iba pa akong dapat pagkuhanan n ibang income para makuha ko yung gusto kong lifestyle," Terrence added.
