There’s something unique about how Jimmy Choo presents himself when we meet in his presidential suite. An immaculate suit sits perfectly on his shoulders and every button on his crisp, white shirt has been carefully crafted and thought out. His skin, eyes, and smile are all glowing with health and happiness, and his shoes, are, of course, buffed to shiny perfection. A man fond of details, his shirt and jacket are both discreetly monogrammed and made from the finest of fabric. Here, Professor Datuk Jimmy Choo, OBE, who now prefers to be known as Zhou Yang Jie, gives us his thoughts on sartorial choices and why he only wears the same pair of shoes for two months.
THE PERFECT FIT
“I get my suits made in Malaysia by Lord’s Tailor. They monogram all of my suits and shirts because these small details are important to me. I told them I was coming to Hong Kong and they made this shirt especially for me and it was at the hotel when I arrived. That kind of care and service is one of the many reasons they have a local customer base.”
