Yes. The classic KLCC towers elaborately sketched across a t-shirt is great and all. But let’s face it, us locals want to create a statement with our clothing and one brand has allowed us to do that, whilst still letting us showcase our Malaysian pride.
APOM (which stands for A Piece Of Malaysia) is a local brand with a range of t-shirts (prices start from RM45) proudly showcasing Malaysian culture, slang and road signs.
After all, these are the kind of t-shirts that showcases the uniqueness of Malaysia, hectic traffic jams, rising living costs and all.
As the team behind APOM puts it:
“Malaysia is more than just the twin towers, hornbills, harimau and durians, but that is all we showcase to the rest of the world most of the time, in shoddily designed Malaysian souvenirs. APOM aims to encourage the lighter side of the Malaysian culture, and to bring the real insight of Malaysia to the world. There is beauty in double parking, volcano massage, and our coconuts with bomoh power.”
APOM’s ultimate aim is to get Malaysians to proudly don a Malaysian brand about their homeland, and for tourists to bring home A Piece Of Malaysia with them. And they aim to do this with well-designed Malaysian products that’ll make people go, “Eh this one from Malaysia…ada standard la!!”
Besides t-shirts, the APOM store stocks products like tea towels, mugs and pillows as well. On which products are the current bestsellers, the team noted that the APOM “slang series” t-shirts and tea towels by Bingka are the ones which are selling like hot cakes.
With a current list of items on board, the team are planning to diversify soon with even more products. They shared, “We’re looking to bring back the old Malaysian games like Batu Seremban, Guli and Lawan Pemadam. In today’s digital age, we’d love to bring back the more tactile old school games to the kids of today.”

Check out the full range of products listed on the APOM website or follow them on Facebook or Instagram for more updates. Psst, they might just be sharing their sale period on their social media channels!
