When it comes to menswear, my husband and I have a few all time favourite designer’s label. Most of them are clothing designed by local designers. Yes. Both of us are quite taken to wearing designer’s label these days, but when it comes to traditional clothing, only a handful of them are appealing in our opinion. There is one label in particular caught our attention recently; Ben’Z Yasin Style. It is fairly new in the fashion industry but in my humble opinion, Ben’Z Yasin Style can go really far.
Ben’Z Yasin Style has recently introduced their Baju Melayu 2015 collection and I thought they gave new breath to somewhat traditionally rigid Baju Melayu.
Ben’Z Yasin new line of Baju Melayu Collection for Aidilfitri 2015. The design comes in four different style and colours. Combining songket and satiny fabrics with contrasting colours, the collection receives mixed reaction from fashion enthusiasts out there. While traditionalists and the conservatives claimed that the outfits are out of norm and too bold, I personally fell in love with the collections and thought that they are not only striking and could make any men who wears them look tastefully fashionable, but the clothing could also be converted into smart casual wear if worn with just slacks and without the traditional sampin.
Below is the four different colours available in the collection:
PinkHot, suitable for metrosexual men who are bold enough to wear pink.
PurpleStyle. Splashes of colours that makes interesting combination. Strutting in these will surely turn heads towards you.
OrangeStyle, vibrant and striking, this energetic and cheeky colour one will surely make the wearer stands out in the crowd.
And last but not least, BlueStyle. Among all of the designs, my husband and I loved this one the most. It was love at first sight.We thought that this particular Baju Melayu design by Ben’Z Yasin Style is stylish and elegant enough without being overly frilly. Versatile in the sense that it could be worn casually during festive season and formal occasions.

I had the opportunity to interview the inspiring man himself during the MV shooting for Aftershock’s Raya MV. Check it out:

If there is one thing I can say about the collection is that is definitely visionary and I think it will win the hearts of many youngsters. Traditional wear needs no longer be boring but stylish instead.
