Baju Melayu is typically worn during Raya or any formal events, and even wedding ceremonies. As a complete set, it comes with a Sampin and a Songkok.

As fashion evolves further, Baju Melayu without Sampin, or even skinny-cut Baju Melayu has somehow become the norm. Some people are okay with the changes, while others prefer the good ol’ classic Baju Melayu.

As for local actor and host, Jaafar Onn, he made it clear that he’s not a fan of the absence of Sampin and Songkok, as well as the tight Baju Melayu

Respect the original version 

In his Facebook post this morning (1 April), Jaafar urged the new generation to respect the original version of the Baju Melayu which comes with a Sampin or Songkok.

“Who else is going to respect our heritage clothing if not us?”

In a different Facebook post, Jaafar also questioned the necessity of making the traditional clothing tight as opposed to the original version.

“They’re just brainless or they’re not thinking clearly”

In an interview with Harian Metro, Jaafar said that the modern changes in Baju Melayu eliminate the value of the attire.

“If anyone visits me in my house with an incomplete Baju Melayu, I will definitely ask about their Sampin and Songkok. Don’t they make your Baju Melayu look better?”

Jaafar also added that he sees these changes as nothing but a brainless move. 

“Are they brainless, or are they just not thinking clearly about this?”

He said, “Why the need for tight Baju Melayu? Who are they to change the creation of Baju Melayu?”

While Jaafar did not mention any names, it’s a possibility that he was hinting at Aliff Syukri’s recent music video for his latest Raya song, which features the controversial businessman himself and a few dancers in tight Baju Melayu.

Jaafar said that he should’ve come up with different ideas for content creation and not to gain popularity with his wealth.

“Don’t ever think that you can do anything just because you’re rich. Don’t do weird stuff in the name of content creation. That’ll be your downfall,” Jaafar explained.

Do you think Jaafar is subtly responding to Aliff’s recent controversial video? Do you agree with his take on Baju Melayu?
