In 2011, Dato Jimmy Choo Malaysia shoemaker was eager to buy back his namesake brand.
But in the May 2009 issue of Reader’s Digest, Malaysian-born shoe maker Dato Jimmy Choo said he has NO REGRETS selling his stake in Jimmy Choo.
He added that the company still bears his name and nobody can take away ‘Jimmy Choo‘ from him. (see visual below)
Dato Jimmy Choo Malaysia
I thought he said nobody can take away ‘Jimmy Choo’ from him!
Dato Jimmy Choo Lost Jimmy Choo
As you have already know, Jimmy Choo Yeang Keat DID NOT manage to get back Jimmy Choo the company founded by Tamara Mellon.
Alas, Jimmy Choo ‘lost’ JIMMY CHOO again.
It was sold to Labelux for £500m.
Who owns Jimmy Choo now?
In 2017, Jimmy Choo was brought by Michael Kors Holdings for 896 million pounds .
As reported the founder of JIMMY CHOO, sexy and shrewd Tamara Mellon (below) made £85million from the £525.5million sale of the business.
Anyway, today Dato Jimmy Choo is enjoying himself as Malaysia’s Tourism Ambassador to the United Kingdom.
He may not be invited to Jimmy Choo Ltd parties, even though he is the man behind the name.
And the many official invitations and rubbing shoulders with Malaysian VVIPs.
Some of you may say, Jaguh Kampung (village hero). Who cares when he is a A-list celebrity in Malaysia.
Well, as they say, home is still the best place to be.
