Men: If athleisure is your style game, then these baju melayu iterations are a must-have for Raya 2016 and other occasions.
The baju melayu is a traditional wear worn by Malay men and during Hari Raya Puasa, it makes a feature as one of the go-to formal party staple for men. Its loose silhouette is a signature and a statement sampin is worn together with it. With bouts of mad hot temps, it’s only practical to stay away from the heat-trapping fabric that some traditional baju melayu are made of. Modern Malaysian men sometimes prefer wearing the baju melayu top casually with breathable jeans minus the sampin, incurring the wrath of their beloved partners.
Ever since the Hipster baju melayu style triggered a major fashion drama thanks to the creative genius of our local designer Zery Zamry who dared to push the traditional box for men’s Raya attire, it’s as though the rest of Malaysia’s creative clothing makers are all conspiring to take it up a notch with their experimentation. I find that it’s awesome! There is something so refreshing about injecting modern elements into the traditional wear and that is exactly what captured my attention when I spotted the latest baju melayu collection from 24:01 clothing brand.
Men, if you’re thinking of keeping it contemporary while wearing a traditional wear and remaining within budgetary lines, the Raya collection from 24:01 is your answer.
With sporty designs that are also minimalistic in flavor, the baju melayu selection is an immensely drool-worthy affair – And I’m not even a man.
Don’t take my word for it until you eyeball them yourself, down below.

“Even though you may want to move forward in your life, you may have one foot on the brakes. In order to be free, we must learn how to let go. Release the hurt. Release the fear. Refuse to entertain your old pain. The energy it takes to hang onto the past is holding you back from a new life. What is it you would let go of today?” — Mary Manin Morrissey
