Instead of digging up that one red t-shirt you only wear on National Day, switch things up with sartorial pieces that still show off your national pride or other quirky pieces that are sure to get you plenty of compliments. These are items we want to keep and use long after the last fireworks at the National Day Parade have gone out.

Part of the funds from sales goes to the Singapore Association for Mental Health (SAMH).
