Individual #7


Nicholas Ng has an eye for style and a gut for fashion. It is no wonder that he advocates streetstyle through his blog, His career as the Senior Sales and Brand Manager for EsquireMalaysia requires him to jet set between Kuala Lumpur, Singapore and Hong Kong. In between all that, he gets to mix and mingle with the who’s who of the fashion, media and PR industry. Moreover, he is able to preview latest fashion items (and gets media discounts while at it!). Needless to say, he has a dream job for anyone who is into fashion and men’s style.

Nicholas feels that Malaysian guys are getting more stylish and fashionable. He said that there is progress as compared to a couple of years back (The Unfolded agrees). However, it is comparatively slow as compared to some other Asian countries like Hong Kong (which has already reached a matured level) and Singapore.

When asked, where could the modern day Malaysian guys get their suits tailored? He recommends Wardrobe, located along Jalan Maarof in Bangsar. And if a guy happens to be in Singapore, he should definitely check out Dylon and Son.

While Garbagelapsap focuses on street style snaps, it also features the latest fashion news for both lovers of style and curious fashion enthusiast alike. Nicholas said that Garbagelapsap started as a personal blog where he would pen his thoughts, back in the day. A few years later, Garbagelapsap trashed its way to become one of the most phenomenal and talked about street style blogs in Malaysia. In fact, Nicholas has every reason to be proud of his baby as garbagelapsap has bagged features not in only local newpapers and magazines, but international publications such as The New Yorker, Vogue and fashion blogs from overseas.
