Matsuda grey striped pants with cuffs

This pair of grey Matsuda pants belonged to Tom Rao, former editor-in-chief of Her World (1980-1988) and Marie Claire Singapore and Malaysia (1992-1998). He also donated several other items to the National Museum of Singapore (NMS) in conjunction with a menswear donation drive organised by NMS and Style Magazine. Some of the items were displayed in the ‘Stylo Mylo: A Selection of Men’s Fashion in Singapore’ exhibition held at the museum in 2006, which showcased three decades of men’s fashion in Singapore.
