The Master Tailor

Toby acquired an eye for tailoring from a young age, helping in his father’s factory at weekends and during the school holidays. He started in the family business at the age of 19, selling his father’s redundant stock from a small rented warehouse by the River Aire.

By the age of 23, Toby had sold his own business and joined his father and brother John at the factory. It was here, as part of the Black and Luper family, that Toby developed a mastery of tailoring, an eye for textile detail, and a firm belief: quality lasts.
