TRADITIONAL BUSANA SET
SGD$250 ONLY* PER SET
Just like a keris, a traditional head-wear is rightfully a personalized element in traditional Malay dress. It should invoke the beauty within and shine forth the personality of the wearer, this is the beauty of a true traditional Malay Head-Wear, referred to in many forms such as the “Tengkolok”, the “Tanjak” or the “Destar”. Traditional Head-Wear making is an art form by itself. Crafted by hand with meticulous attention to detail.
In a modern day black-tie event, the following elements are pre-requisites:
For men, the elements of black tie are:
i. A white dress shirt
ii. A black bow tie
iii. An evening waistcoat or cummerbund
iv. A dinner jacket (called a tuxedo in the United States), of black or midnight blue wool, in which the jacket lapels and trouser braid are of silk or other contrasting material
v. Black Oxford (without brogueing) dress shoes or patent leather pumps.
For a traditional equivalent in a Malay outfit for men, the dressware is not complete without custom fitted add-ons. A traditional “Baju Melayu” outfit is deemed incomplete if these basic pre-requisites are missing.
i. Head Wear – Songket Material Tanjak/Tengkolok/Destar
ii. Bengkung (WaistBand/Waist Sash) – Songket Material
iii. Samping – Songket Material
iv. Baju Melayu Cekak Musang Type
v. Chapal (Traditional Leather Sandals)
