Sim Khan, attorney-turned-CEO of Brimble & Clark Custom Clothiers: makers of dangerously-sharp custom suits catered to young sharks and global celebrities in DC, NY and LA (www.brimbleandclark.com).
What does success mean to you?
I am proud that Brimble & Clark has grown so rapidly and continues to draw more media attention every month but personally, I think that our biggest successes happen when our clients say that their B&C suits open doors for them in the boardroom, in the courtroom and in the bedroom.
What do you do to be successful?
Work 14 hours a day. Constantly ride the line between ballsy and stupid. Eat, sleep & dream about suits.
Please share a personal success story with us?
18 months ago, I was a full time lawyer and Brimble & Clark was just an idea in my head. Today B&C employs 28 seasoned artisans, our clothes have earned high praise from the producers at NBC TV’s Fashion Star and our suits are being worn by a slew of celebrities and athletes like Booboo Stewart (X-Men: Days of Future Past) Pierre Garcon (Washington Redskins), Doug E. Doug (Cool Runnings), and Diplo (Megastar Recording Artist) to name just a few. I feel blessed, this is an exciting time for B&C and I can’t wait to see what this year holds for us.
What would you recommend to others to do to be successful?
Love what you do. Risk more. Treat every client like a rock-star and, if you sell a product, make sure it’s the best #&%ing product on the market.
