 Batik has become a hallmark of Indonesia. It is made by a technique of wax-resist dyeing applied to whole cloth with a spouted tool called "Canting" (Batik Tulis) or a copper stamp called "Cap" (Printing Batik). The applied wax resists dyes and therefore allows the artisan to colour selectively by soaking the cloth in one colour, removing the wax with boiling water, and repeating if multiple colours are desired.  

Behind the beauty of Batik, there's a profound history of acculturation of Indonesia. Batik is an artwork which has high artistic value and has become part of Indonesian culture. Each region in Indonesia has its own traditional pattern, according to the cultural values of those regions.

Friends, at first, batik more known as old-fashioned clothes. Clothes for the elderly. But not for today, along with the development of batik design, either boys and girls started to like wearing batik in daily outfit. Batik can be used for family gathering, hangout with friends, attended the wedding invitation, and for work apparel.
Well, in this discussion I would like to share about the wearing of batik and undershirt. Men like wearing undershirt to reduce the absorption of sweat directly onto  outer clothes, warm body if the weather is cold, or just for comfort only. 
Slightly different with informal shirts, batik is almost same with formal shirts. Its function is to create a neater look. So
, what type of undershirt we should wear with batik to make us look more attractive?
The selection of undershirt type is very important. In general, there are three types of commonly used undershirts, there are:1. U-neck undershirt2. V-neck undershirt3. Singlet

When you wear batik or any formal shirt, avoid to choose undershirt which can be visible. Mostly, it is undershirt type U-neck. This matter literally will reduce the aesthetic look of batik itself and make us seems like a reckles boys. Haha. 😶

So, for me, instead of using U-neck undershirt, it is better to choose V-neck or singlet. These types mostly will be not visible (like in the picture below). It makes you look more neat and polite.

OK guys, I hope this fashion tips will help you to dress in more "kece". If you have any idea to be discussed in the next post, just comment below or email me. Thank you and have a nice day!
