Esquire Malaysia, founded in 2011, presents you with a formidable lineup of distinguished local contributors and ambitious ideas that, we hope, provide a thought-provoking experience.
Esquire celebrates what it means to be a man in the 21st century. Esquire has become a platform where the intellectually curious and the socially aware meet. Since it was founded in 1933, Esquire has been known for pushing the boundaries, with literary giants such as Ernest Hemingway, F.Scott Fitzgerald and Norman Mailer finding their voice with the magazine.
We're also passionate about sharing the unique culture of Esquire to Malaysian men through exclusive events and interactive online content, so watch out for announcements through our Instagram, Facebook and Twitter accounts. Freelancers, contributors, internship applications and media enquiries can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.

SIMON BURGESS, editor-in-chief
Simon Burgess is a familiar name in Malaysia. He has lived in the country for over 10 years and has been the editor of numerous international magazine titles, as well as appearing on TV and radio. He has also lived and worked in Scotland, France and South Korea.
SIM WIE BOON, web editor
Sim likes food, cars, clothes and Kanye West. A product of millennial nonsense drawn from the Internet age, Sim has been wading through the waters of life in search of something he does not know yet. Before joining Esquire, he was with Clive, JUICE Malaysia and The Rakyat Post. Shoot him an email to say hello.
SHERMIAN LIM, deputy editor
For a non-fashion person who’d rather spend on travel, Shermian is tickled she’s ended up smack in the middle of the action. She’s an all-rounded journalism nerd who’s spent a chunk of time traipsing about overseas, but returned to Malaysia (no regrets!) in search of good local stories.
IAN LOH, fashion editor
Ian loves a good drink as much as he loves fashion. So much in fact, the team appoints him as "Esquire's Designated Drinker". But for Ian, fashion always comes first. Look out for his styling work and local fashion musings.
SARAH CHONG, fashion assistant
Sarah has trouble writing bios, but will have no problem having a proper conversation with you. Little things bring her joy, like the construction of a well-fitted suit and the parallel arrangement of things. She also finds the different ways people hold their utensils pretty amusing.
REBECCA CHEW, art director
Rebecca would rather talk about music and books than describe her occupation. If pressed, she would say she's a graphic designer who worked with
KATHRYN TAN, associate art director
Kathryn joined Esquire in July 2011. Don't ask her to print anything unless it's really really—can't stress this enough—really really necessary, unless you want an impassioned lecture on how humanity is killing the environment. Kathryn lives in KL with Pat and Wong, her two dogs.
AINI SURAYA NASARUDDIN, senior designer
Aini Suraya—we prefer to call her Yaya—is responsible for the design of the watch section, as well as the festive greetings that you see on our social media accounts. In other words, Yaya makes us better people because she forces us to be polite.
