Eugene hails from Furci Siculo in the province of Messina, Sicily. He started tailoring at the age of eight, training until at sixteen when he went to work at a Sartoriale, where he worked with the finest cloths and refined his skills as a tailor. After his apprenticeship and cutting school in Messina, Eugene moved to London to learn English and further his knowledge of tailoring; he worked with the many Italian and French tailors in the capital, eventually running a business in Bond Street for the owner, who was nearing retirement.

Eugene joined Richard Anderson in 2004 and has been responsible not only for a large amount of the highest quality handwork, but also for training young apprentices.

Eugene is married, with two sons and two grand-children and is still keen on football, although his days playing in the Anglo Italian team have now come to an end through retirement from the game.
