Can you dig it?

‘Slow fashion’ is a thing apparently. It involves making products that last and are not disposable, which is certainly something we believe in. As a small business, selling quality goods manufactured in Britain, products take time to come to market and we joked that we would’t launch our shorts until Christmas. We’ve amazed ourselves though and the […]

Motorcycle Social

Everyone knows that motorcycling is anti social. Bikes with loud flame spitting exhausts, heavily modified and racing around at high speed. The tattooed freak riders with unruly beards making a nuisance of themselves.

The event was developed and is still run by Sideburn, the world’s most original motorcycling magazine. Basically it’s a ‘run what you brung’ […]

We don’t make it easy

It would be easy to use a courier company to collect and ship our orders. But we like using the local Post Office. We know the people there and they help us to do a good job. Our business also contributes to keeping that vital local facility open. It’s a choice that we can make. […]
