Over 100 years of tailoring experience

Hemingway tailors

Hemingway Tailors has been stylishly dressing its impressive global client portfolio since 2005, when Toby Luper made the decision to set up his own business with the aim of creating the ‘Savile Row Tailor of the North’. However Toby’s tailoring experience stretches back over 40 years and his family have been tailoring within Leeds for much longer.

Men’s tailoring has been the bedrock of the business for many years and although still widely recognised as men’s tailors, the introduction of ladies tailoring a few years ago means that Hemingway now has men and women both sides of the Atlantic sharply dressed in Hemingway tailored suits.


Over 100 years of tailoring heritage

Toby started in the family business at the age of 19, selling his father’s redundant stock from a small rented warehouse by the river. However, he acquired a taste for tailoring at a much younger age whilst helping in his father’s factory at weekends and during the school holidays.

Owners of the largest single story factory in the country, Norman Black, Toby’s uncle and father, Stanley Luper, employed hundreds of staff at their Kirkstall Road site making garments for high-profile customers including independent retailers, high street brands and world famous clothing brands .
