Kaos Baju Distro - Variations shirts as outerwear is now very diverse. Shirts are produced both in primary colors as well as in more complex combinations, some of which are equipped with a pocket to store stationery, cigarettes, or other small objects. With so shirts are not only used by young people, men, or those who come from lower classes, but also be used by anyone. We also see the Kaos Baju Distro worn in a variety of events, from work to fill his spare time, such as the streets of a shopping center or play golf.
