Baju Melayu Telok Belanga

Malay traditional custom for men is Baju Melayu Telok Belanga. What make Baju Melayu Telok Belang different from Baju Melayu Cekak Musang is cutting style at the neck where the Teluk Belanga style has no collar and the neckline is stitched in the style known as "tulang belut" ("eel's spines or bones")..

The Baju Kurung Teluk Belanga originated, as its name implies, from Teluk Belanga, in the island of Singapore, which was previously the capital of the state of Johor. The Teluk Belanga shirt normally has only two pockets both at the bottom.

Similar with other Baju Melayu, Baju Belayu Telok Belanga is a loosely fitting shirt with long sleeves, worn with long pants with a "sampin" or "samping" which is wrapped around the middle of the body from the stomach to the knee and sometimes lowers.

This sampin is usually a three-quarter length or full sarong-style cloth made of kain songket, tenun Pahang Diraja or other woven materials with traditional patterns. Malay men look tidy and smart when wearing baju melayu especially when they wearing it with samping and songkok. Baju Melayu also suitable to be wearing when they going for pray….what I can say they look so smart with the clothes.
