A DAILY MAIL BOOK OF THE WEEK

‘Everest is truly dedicated to his profession… He deserves to be known as the Welsh Ralph Lauren or Giorgio Armani.’ – Roger Lewis, Daily Mail

The son of restaurateurs, young Timothy Everest wanted nothing more than to be a racing driver. This was not to be, but little did he know that a job he took at age 17 – as a sales assistant at Hepworths in Milford Haven – would set the trajectory for success to come.

Boy Wanted on Savile Row is the remarkable story of Everest’s meteoric rise in the British fashion industry. Starting in the 1980s and studying under Tommy Nutter, the rebel of Savile Row, while rubbing shoulders with the likes of Steve Strange and Boy George, he branched out on his own the following decade. Here he initially styled bands and pop stars, before spearheading the ‘Cool Britannia’ generation and becoming the face of the New Bespoke Movement. After earning over 3,500 clients, including Tom Cruise, David Beckham and Jay-Z, to name but a few, Everest turned his hand to tailoring for film, creating some truly iconic pieces for such franchises as James Bond and Mission Impossible.

In this revealing memoir, featuring a wealth of famous names and celebrity anecdotes, Timothy Everest details the evolution of British tailoring that has shaped the way we view and buy our clothes.
