Manu Melwani, Hon Phd., Medal of Honour and Justice of the Peace (HK) and recipient of Belgium's Knight of the Order of the Crown, has gradually become somewhat of a celebrity in his own right. As he explained when interviewed on Bloomberg TV about the economic future, he has been a part of Hong Kong business life for 51 years. “Things always go in cycles. You just have to be patient and keep going, things will change.” Steady Sam, as he is called, has grown the business into a global brand, and picked up honours and achievements along the way. Recently Hong Kong issued a commemorative stamp, which featured Sam’s Tailors. This marked a pinnacle of Manu turning Sam’s into a Hong Kong institution.
