Its been years since I last bought a batik shirt – let alone having a ‘Kurta’ in my collection, seems about time to get one. Recommended by a friend, I immediately took this opportunity before the “Hari Raya” shopping spree kicks-in. Screening its impressive collection of apperals ranging from ‘Baju Melayu’, ‘Kurta‘, ‘Kemeja Pak Maun‘ and ‘Jubah‘ and upon further examination on its official website, I could honestly say I was excited with what Aisy Asyraf has to offer.
Located closely beside UiTM Shah Alam, is the Aisy Asyraf Boutique (Shah Alam Branch) which is near my residency, thus I quickly drove – hoping to secure a parking space in the sunny Saturday morning vibe, but sadly to no avail I was driven to park a bit further from the outlet as the crowed beat me to it. Walking towards the Aisy Asyraf outlet, I passed many other apparel outlets and wondered – how tight the competition must be in grabbing attention, but upon closer inspection I realized that every brand has its own identity which in turn appeals to their fan base.
The outlet is situated on the second floor of a corner shop lot with its hard-to-miss signboard. Entering, you will be welcomely greeted and flashed with the various categories of apparrels and stunning designs which are strategically placed for convenience – as the traffic of walk-in customers and purchases are in its all-time high.
Since 2015 the brand Aisy Asyraf was inspired by the name of Imam Muda Asyraf (Juara Imam Muda Musim 1) and his son Aisy Raihan. Its ‘Judah’ and ‘Kurta’ fashion sense is meant to appeal to the modern and contemporary man to wear for both formal or casual occasions, even during ‘Hari Raya’. Its price may vary depending on the category of attire and material, however is reasonable and under market price. They also have accessories ranging from men’s ‘Capal’, perfume, clutch bags and ‘Butang Baju Melayu’ for a complete set to add to your collection.
1. KURTA BATIK!
I particularly love the ‘Kurta Batik’ which is actually Aisy Asyraf’s fan favourite. Trying it on, its cool and comfortable fabric allows my body to breathe plus its easy care material allows its user convenience of machine wash. It currently has more than 25 different designs and sizes ranging from XS to XXXL. Cuff sleeved top with cufflink holes and collared neckline with ‘Butang Baju Melayu’ fastening adds the ability to accessorize to a man’s choice in style. A top left pocket and semi slim fit cutting gives character to the modern man. Its perfect for any of my formal occasion.
2. KEMEJA PAK MAUN
This short-sleeved-button-down collared shirt also caught my eye. Its semi slim-fit cotton material cutting hugs nicely against my body and with a top left pocket makes for convenience. What took me awhile to choose were its many abstract and floral motif. I had to practically try-on a few shirts from its 38 designs to see which best accentuates my character and style. Conveniently, this category also provides sizes that range from XS to XXXL.
THE OUTLET (SHAH ALAM BRANCH)
Finding the outlet wasn’t at all difficult, using Google maps it clearly showed me the way.

Spending more than 4 hours at the outlet while trying on the many apparels, finally got a Kurta and Kemeja Pak Maun to add to my closet. Absolutely worth it! Will be coming again for different designs soon.
