Wardrobe was one amongst a few of the Southeast Asian ateliers brand that were featured on the new Crazy Rich Asians movie. We can see in the movie that most of the male characters rely heavily on well-tailored suits and tuxedos, especially for the lead character; Nick Young played by Henry Golding. Those sublime garments were crafted by the homegrown labels such as Lord’s Tailor (Malaysia), Aston Blake (Singapore), Q Menswear (Singapore), Lisa Von Tang (Singapore), and Wardrobe (Malaysia).

Snippet from the Vanity Fair article on Wardrobe –
“The rich [Asians,] the ‘old money’ ones, they do prefer tailor-made just like Wardrobe because the people there specifically cater to rich people in Malaysia and Singapore, Southeast Asia as well,” said Choo. Wardrobe has been making suits for almost 30 years now, and under Master Tailor Lim Fang Meng’s leadership, the brand aims to bring “Savile Row’s tradition and heritage in today’s Malaysian market.” Henry Golding wears a linen Wardrobe suit when we first see his character Nick Young in his grandmother’s house at Tyersall Park—clean, simple, and as Awkwafina’s character Peik Lin puts it, “like the Asian Bachelor.”
