Well Groomed Gentleman

MEET my friend, R. Galih Riyadi a.k.a Brewok a.k.a Mr. Haircut. A big man with remarkable beard and moustache, who will makes all of you, gentleman, a damn good haircut.
He is a hairstylist at evening, and works nine-to-five like common people. Brewok is a man behind the Hair Cut’s and Martabat (@HairCutMartabat), a cutting-edge barbershop at Cinde Barat 31(well known as CB 31) Semarang. Before this barbershop officially open in 5th November 2013, he did the talent by cutting some of his friends’ hair. Then he thought, ‘why not making my own barbershop? With different style amongst the others, of course’. And then, this perky Hair Cut’s and Martabat born. He admitted, this place was born from a brave recklessness.

The name itself suddenly pop up from a friend, Ijak, at a time when they had a chit chat. Haircut Martabat is a parody of ‘Harkat dan Martabat’ (The Dignity). He wisely pick that name with a simple hope, his customers would get a dignity/ prestige after had their hair cut. Haha.

If you visit this place, you’ll see a vintage room decorated with some old photographs, old posters, solid woods, old toy, various pomades, old vinyl player with some oldies music, old motorbike, and say hello to the humble-hilarious-bearded-and-moustache-hairstylist. With a help from his assistances, this barbershop are open for all of you gentleman out there (sorry ladies), from 6 to 10 pm at weekdays, and 3 to 10 pm at weekends. Be happy, lads, you’ll get a super affordable price. It’s only 10k until this last December, and raised to 15k on January 2014. So lads, don’t hesitate yourself. Tidy up your hair here, and walk proudly.

Man in Batik

A man wearing Batik, is a nice thing to see. And it’s nicer if they wear it in style. Not too much style, just simply in style. Good Batik isn’t just a man goes along with Batik Shirt and that’s all. There’s suit, outer, jumper, pants or shoes. In an APPMI Jawa Tengah fashion show last week (Friday, 13/9), which is a part of “Semarang Wedding Festival”, Elkana Gunawan, a fashion designer from Semarang, presented 8 ethnic outfit in “Lelakon”, with the patchwork and asymmetric details. He combine Tenun Troso and Classic Batik motifs into stylish-ethnic-male outfit. Although I don’t like all of the pretty outfit, it’s a nice way to combine traditional fabrics into a stylish outfit. And by the way, this is my first man’s fashion in a runaway posting. Enjoy.
