The baju Melayu is for the men. Like the baju kurung and kebaya, the baju Melayu is usually worn by the men during celebrations and weddings.
In the old times the baju Melayu has only one colour, but now it can be found in many colourful designs and patterns.
The baju Melayu is worn with a songket, samping or a tengkolok. Some match the songket, songkok and baju Melayu to look smarter.
Besides wearing long pants, the baju Melayu can be worn with the kain pelekat. This match can be seen during Friday prayers in the mosque every week.
