Sam’s Tailor is a small, family-owned tailoring business in Hong Kong that has built itself into a global brand known for the amazing quality of its 24-hour bespoke suits. Sam’s Tailor has created suits for royalty, celebrities, world politicians like Presidents Bill Clinton and George Bush, and fashion designers like Tory Burch.
This week, Host Mary McCarthy and Co-Host Sharon DeLay talk to Roshan Melwani, a third generation proprietor of Sam’s Tailor. Roshan talks about the challenges of working in a multi-generational business with his father Manu and his uncle, the difficulties of finding and retaining skilled workers, and how he’s changing the business.
“I think if you are gonna force change, you are gonna fail. And I did fail, and I failed over and over and over again. I think we need to lead change… if you want change, you need to lead change, and you need to stay true to yourself and keep moving forward, without ruffling other people’s feathers. That’s how you win.” ~ Roshan Melwani
