20 QUESTIONS: David Hathiramani, A Suit That Fits

Silicon Roundabout's most dapper entrepreneur on why computers are his only love, and why having a good finance director is so important.

by Emma Haslett

1. If you had done something else, what would it have been?

I’m a bit of a geek so something [else] with computers. I’d imagine I’d have created something online. It’s a bit sad. I always wanted to have my own business.

2. What else would you have called your business

We wouldn’t have gone the traditional route and called it a normal name – I think we might have done a takeoff of Savile Row and called it something and something. Actually, that’s probably it – we’d have called it ‘Something & Something’ to take the mick out of the rest of the tailors. 

3. If you could be based in another city, where would it be?

I think, in terms of business, we’re in the right places – New York and London. But if I had the choice, I would love to live in Paris. It’s got a really cool way about it.
