Eveleigh & Read was conceived in 2006 by two tailors with substantial experience, Paul Read and Robert Eveleigh. The partners recognised that there were many City of London gentlemen who needed to look their best, but had neither the time or desire (or both) to shop for clothes. Thus our Visiting Tailor service was born, initially based in The City then later in Hammersmith.
In 2010 Paul and Robert opened their first showroom in Spitalfields which today forms the home of the business: serving customers in the local area with bespoke suits and shirts whilst still visiting some of our clients in Canary Wharf, The City and the West End. Some of our clients have been further away than that and have visited us from Japan, Dubai, Australia and the United States.
Nowadays the showroom is thriving with a constant stream of visitors, and we’re delighted to still be able to call Spitalfields our home.
Paul is now our Head Tailor and leads the operation. Experienced in all aspects of tailoring, he is also the Wardrobe Master (and astounding top tenor) for London Welsh Male Voice Choir.
