I went by Sacoor Brothers a few days ago to use up some store credit i have with them, and didn’t even know there was a sale going on for their Spring Summer collection! Some items like their silk ties are even up to 60% off! The sale is only on till 1st September so you should drop by their Pavilion or KLCC THIS WEEKEND if you don’t wanna miss out.
If you haven’t heard of Sacoor Brothers before, i’ll just give you a quick rundown. The Portugese label just launched less than a year ago in KL, and already have over sixty boutiques across the globe (in Singapore, Portugal, Spain, UK, Belgium, United Arab Emirates, and Kuwait).
Some might recognise the celebrities they have endorsing their apparel, like William Baldwin, Chris O’Donnell, Rob Lowe, as well as the actors from CSI: Miami and Grey’s Anatomy. Sacoor Brothers is also the official suit supplier for the FC Barcelona football team!
I brought Josh along with me cos i wanted to share some of my store credit with him… in some way trying to repay him for helping me out SO MUCH with shooting products for my upcoming online store!
Joshua Chay is a photographer whom i first met when i was Managing Ed at Tongue in Chic, and he would do the photography and video work for us (he still works closely with the TIC team!). Now, he’s got his own studio with his business partner Chris, called The Spacemen; and has done vids for Levi’s, Hermes, GAP, AirAsia, and Topshop/Topman. < just click on the links to watch ‘em. I love the Hermes one!!
He’s so hard to get ahold of cos he’s shooting every single day from morning till late at night (i know, cos we had to fit in dates to shoot my stuff)! Even to go out shopping he had to move his meetings around so we could just GO and have some fashion FUN!
When i initially asked Josh to come pick out some clothes with me, he was a bit hesitant and asked, “But will they fit?” cos he’s as small as me. I was like, “Eh, they measure you when you’re there and alter everything to YOUR size, so you don’t have to worry!”
Josh wearing Sacoor Bros jacket, and me wearing a skirt from their SS collection.
I can’t wait to get this skirt after alteration! It’s made of soft silk and look how it falls so nicely!
Rita got me to stand on the chair so she could measure it better instead of poor her crouching on the ground. I didn’t mind. It made me feel EXTRA TALL XD
I found another skirt that i love! It’s so festival-like, but i’m afraid i might ruin it if i dared to wear it somewhere there’s a high chance of me rolling around on the grass.
Getting measured by Jack from Sacoor Brothers
We both thought this jacket was pretty cool
Jack told Josh how to tell where your jacket should end – it should be right where your hands can curl on to it when your arm is hanging straight! Interesting… even i never knew that.
Josh was thinking about this classic dark blue suit too, so Jack and Rita measured and pinned him up so it’s easier to see what it looks like after alteration.
They even take in the sleeves if you’re skinny like us.
I remember them taking in sleeves for all my shirts from Sacoor Bros.
In the end Josh went with this jacket cos it IS so much cooler and more him,
and a really nice dark blue shirt that’s made from this impressive wrinkle-free material.

I think i’m gonna pick out a pair of shoes next time i’m there… they felt really comfy!
Love the detailing on their leather jackets
Sacoor Brothers is located at Pavilion Lot 2.01.11, Level 2, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
