A family-owned shoe store located along Jalan Gasing, P. Lal is an education in European heritage shoemakers – think Barker, Cheaney, Crockett & Jones (super spy James Bond wears these), Gaziano & Girling and Sutor Mantellassi. The PJ store is well worth a visit to chat with the know-all staff associates – and soak up that irresistible smell of leather. Fun fact: P. Lal has been in operation since 1929. Another fun fact: The store claims to have the largest collection of Loake shoes in the world. A final fun fact: the late Yasmin Ahmad (celebrated Malaysian filmmaker, writer) produced panel and print ads for P. Lal way back when it was still located at Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman and prices were in ‘$’ and not ‘RM’.
