8 menswear Raya collections for the 2023 Ramadan festive season

What are you looking for this Raya?

Don’t let a lack of sartorial choices dampen your Raya celebrations as we’ve prepared a range of Raya menswear collections for you to choose from. Be it your classic Baju Raya or a more adventurous take on traditional, modest attire.


1. TAS by Tom Abang Saufi (Zalora)

Tom Abang Saufi goes tribal this Raya as the designer pays homage to ethnic motifs from across the globe. Stunning Mayan, Polynesian and Native American designs take the form of batik shirts, each infused with a modern edge. From indigenous tattoo-inspired elements to a touch of rock and roll, the pieces are a perfect display of appreciation for the cultural heritage of Malaysia and beyond. Plus, the use of linen provides a combination of comfort and sophistication to the collection.

Earth tones perfectly invoke the visual environment of the founder’s youth. The past meets present as ANAABU pays tribute to generations past with unique panelling and lines bringing forth a new sense of modernity to classic menswear.

3. Pestle & Mortar Clothing (PMC)

Pestle & Mortar Clothing introduces its first-ever Baju Melayu set as part of the label’s Sahra: The Desert Collection for Raya 2023. This classic ensemble has an updated twist as a mesh back insert provides the perfect ventilation against the Malaysian heat. Aside from the traditional Baju Melayu, you’ll also find a vibrant geometric printed “Persian Bowling Shirt”, keeping in line with the brand’s Arabian influences. There’s also a dash of tongue-in-cheek humour as a range of graphic tees includes the “Kurma Tee” which the streetwear brand aptly describes as the “only date you need this Raya”.

8. Behati

Behati is back and this time it’s a celebration! The label’s fifth anniversary sees the release of the “Behati Pelangi Busana Melayu” 2023 collection which features Behati’s signature structural fabrics in voluminous shapes and of course, a kaleidoscope of colours. From festive floral prints to oversized plaids and vibrant, high-sheen satin it’s all about exaggerating traditional silhouettes of the Baju Melayu. Behati’s Pelangi campaign made the rounds on social media as models in the aptly-named collection walked across a zebra crossing in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, directly opposite the bustling Pavilion KL. The runway presentation mirrored Behati creative director Kel Wen’s own journey of “a kampung boy with city dreams”. The second part of the campaign takes place in Sekinchan, which sees the label “balik kampung”, featuring famed photographer and brand muse TTFGA.
