Baju Sikap (Jawi: باجو سيکڤ) is a traditional Malay men's costume, originated from the court of Kedah, and is traditionally worn by men in northern Malaysia. It literally translates as attitude dress.[1]


This style of clothing is preferred by men and was worn as early as 1786 in Kedah.[2] It is a part of the official attire of the Sultan of Kedah, worn for State Official Ceremonies. Baju Sikap has been worn for the past two centuries among the Royal Family of Kedah. The Sultan Abdul Hamid Halim Shah wore this dress while attending the Coronation Ceremony of King George V in London in 1910.[3]

This dress is said to come from Java or Aceh which then modified according to the Malay culture. The simplest Baju Sikap is enhanced as a piece of a short jacket, split in front with a high collar. Baju Sikap means "attitude dress". The wearer of Baju Sikap is considered a person who is ready and firm. Therefore, in the State of Kedah and then Malaysia, it is considered a complete formal dress or full formal dress. Baju Sikap is one of the basic clothing Malay and a part of the Malay "suit five" and usually worn during official events in Malaysia.

In 1960, Baju Muskat was first worn during the coronation of the third Yang di-Pertuan Agong inspired by Tunku Abdul Rahman when he became the first Prime Minister of Malaysia, who was a prince from the Kedah. The Baju Muskat is a modified version of Baju Sikap from the official attire of Kedah State Government Officials and thus become of the regalia of Malaysia.
