An autopsy by Hawaii medical officials will determine the cause of death including the possibility of a sudden heart attack.
On Saturday, August 31, The Clotherie released this statement on Facebook:
"We are so incredibly sad to let everyone know that yesterday we lost one of the greatest men, friends, and overall inspirations that has touched this earth. We know that there are so many people that have either met him once or known him for many of years and we thank you for sharing in his life. He loved everyone as if they were family and was touched by the great times, the sad times, and simply loving being part of everyone's experiences. You all have given us so much comfort in this time, but remember that he would want all of you to cherish the time you have together and live life to the fullest. He will be missed and will forever be watching over all of you."
Eveloff worked at The Clotherie for 35 years as a sale associate before entering ownership. The 45-year-old Phoenix store specializes in high-end men's clothing and has received national recognition from magazines including Esquire.
Eveloff's family is tentatively planning a memorial at the Camelback Inn Resort and Spa on Sunday, September 21. We will update with more details when they're available.
