Just came back from attending the RFQ briefing by a government agency in the above building. They called me yesterday, asking me to submit lots of documents so that I can attend today's briefing. I said I totally do not qualify. I not only have never successfully completed a RM80K corporate suit order, I've never made a single uniform in my life.

The caller said to just bring the documents when I come. I said in that case, I can't come because I'm unprepared. This dismayed him. He quickly said, "then just come for the discussion lah."

I was very keen on attending because I wanted to look my competitors in the eye and let them know that I will let them win this year but that I'll be bidding next year. I was expecting the titans of the KL tailoring industry to be there. Menswear capitalists. Some in the second generation. With their personal assistants and drivers. Clad in their extremely optimized suits. So intimidating.

My contact there escorted me to the auditorium. He opened the door. I stepped into the very plush auditorium.

No menswear capitalists. Nobody was in a suit. In fact, they looked like plumbers or butchers.

Had a great time talking to the people managing the purchase and the vendors there.

There was no competition. If I had bid, I would have won.

This is the third tux I'm making this customer. Everybody needs at least three tuxes.

A 4" peak-lapelled tux in---get this---Sultan model. I think I'll have Coatmaker C make this.

Just got off the phone with a news outlet (very well known) asking if I'd sponsor suits for their news anchor. Will meet with him Monday.

As usual, it came by way of a phone call out of the blue.
