While we all love to admire stylish ladies on Instagram, there’s no denying that men are also keen players of the best-dressed game. Look closer, and you’ll notice that Malaysian lads know how to hold their own in the style arena, be it in a smart tuxedo or in chic streetwear. Bonus points: These well-kitted gents are masters of cool poses; something guys can learn from for their next #OOTD. *This article was originally published in November 2018 and was updated on April 21, 2021 

Fattah Amin

The in-demand actor and husband to Nur Fazura is blessed with heartthrob looks and a taste for polished, smart ensembles. To complement his well-groomed features and trim figure, Fattah leans towards blazers, open-collared crisp shirts, snug polo tees, and occasionally, dresses down with plain colour tees. When the occasion permits, he’ll throw on a leather jacket for instant suave points. The happy new dad has also posted often on Instagram about his firstborn baby daughter, whom the couple welcomed in October 2020.

Koh Li Tim

Like his jet-setting lifestyle, Li Tim exudes a worldly fashion sense. One moment, the K-pop artist lookalike pairs his Balenciaga kicks to a Vetements windbreaker in breezy Helsinki, another moment, he’s snug in a rainbow of knits by Missoni, on a wintry day in Kyoto. In a nutshell, Li Tim’s #OOTDs and nomadic habits are a match made in every millennial's dream.

Tan San Chuan

With abs that can grate cheese and a perpetually bronzed complexion, we don’t blame San Chuan for spending a bulk of his time topless or in thigh-hiking shorts. But this fitness coach can clean up well in moments that call for it. For the rare occasion he suits up, San Chuan makes fun of himself (hashtag #dollingup), when in actual truth, he is the very embodiment of an attractive man in a suit.
