How To Wear Sampin


Sampin, sometimes referred to as "samping". "Samping" is from the word "sampingan" meaning an "accompaniment" or "accessory", of the dress or attire.

Sampin is the cloth worn on the belly area covering the stomach up to the knees or slightly below the knees, or the mid-area of the body. Sampin is to wear with baju melayu, a traditional attire for malay men.

Although most of them are stitched and closed like a sarong, there are some men who prefer to wear one that is left unstitched at both ends of the cloth, and this cloth is called sarong lepas or as samping kain punca potong.

Usually, kain samping is about half the size of a normal sarong. It's worn over the trouser of a baju kurung. There are many variations to wear the kain samping but the basic technique is the easiest!
