Happen - HebTroCo

Happen

Sometimes stuff just happens. Good stuff rarely happens on its own. It happens when good people try hard. And that’s what we have here – these articles are about things that have happened. And will happen.

It’s always a buzz when you spot someone wearing your products. At our recent Bizarre Bazaar there was a smart chap stood at the bar. We noticed that he was wearing Light Olive GVNR Shorts held up with a beautiful Walnut Brown Garrison Belt. He looked so good that we got Alex to take some […]

Bizarre Bazaar

The first HebTroCo pop up shop was in the Blazing Saddles bike shop in Hebden Bridge. The shop had been devastated by the floods of Boxing Day 2015 and was in the process of being cleared and dried out ready for building works. We’d been there the day after the flood, helping to sweep mud and […]

It’s nuts

The 1485 Jacket is made from British woven wool, with a British woven cotton lining. It will now also be finished with British made buttons. It seemed nuts that we couldn’t find genuinely British made buttons. Well don’t worry because we’ve found some now, and even better, they are actually made from nuts. They are […]

See what’s up our sleeve

When wearing our 1485 Wool Jacket it’s reassuring to know that you have something special up your sleeve. The jackets are fully lined with a very special parachute fabric which is woven in Lancashire. Here’s the story. This cloth is used to make a kind of drogue* parachute in many of the jet fighters around […]

Ride Free or Die

What does it mean? It comes from Live Free or Die. So it means just that, but on bikes. Be independent, take responsibility for your own actions, look after yourself and don’t take instruction from self appointed authority figures. Ride like you want to live. Ride free or die. It’s an aspiration and a code […]

Moderate to Good

The best cure for being seasick is actually to be sick. Ed knows this is true because after throwing up his spiced lamb pasty over the side of the boat he felt a lot better. Our mate, the chef Rob Owen Brown, had invited us for a day of sea fishing on a chartered boat. […]

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. So what’s this ‘Motorcycle Social’ about? Well luckily for the squares all the naughty bikers were in one place with their machines last weekend […]

Piece Hall

Hercules the pug was the first dog to set foot in the fabulously redeveloped Piece Hall in Halifax a couple of weeks ago. If it wasn’t for his friendly charm we would have never got inside to take some photos. The Grade I listed building has been having a £20 million facelift over the last […]

Shotgun Chef

“Can you manage a steak?” We’re in the kitchen taking photos with Robert Owen Brown. We like a good lunch, and so were delighted to find out that the nearest pub to our warehouse-come-office unit, has just become the best place to eat in the area. Jay Rayner, the Observer’s restaurant critic said, “Robert Owen Brown […]

Motorcycle Social

We are excited to be launching our new Moto Boots at the Motorcycle Social on the weekend of 28-29 July at Canal Mills in Leeds. Ed has been riding motorcycles since he was expelled from school and had to get to a new place of education, under his own steam some distance from home. Every cloud has […]

Alan Coulson is an award winning Hebden Bridge based artist who regularly exhibits work in the UK and US. Currently his work has been selected for the highly prestigious BP Portrait Award at the National Portrait Gallery in London. Alan’s portrait of Tommy, who makes belts for us, instantly impressed us. We are also tickled that […]

Dirtquake

“I guarantee that someone here will be leaving in an ambulance today.” These inspiring words were part of the rider briefing for Dirtquake, the alternative motorcycling scene’s answer to the Wacky Races. 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’ […]

Boots

Our Chukka and Moto Boots are in production right now and will start shipping in the next few weeks. We made a factory visit this week and had a sneak peak at the boots as they were being made. The Chukka Boot uppers are made from a wheatbuck suede from a British tannery. This has been […]

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. […]

Nice sack

We love a good sack and we’re chuffed to bits that we’ve finally got rid of plastic mailing bags. To replace them we now have British made paper sacks. They are degradable, compostable and easily recycled helping us reduce the carbon foot print of our packaging. The paper is from sustainable forests to meet Forest Stewardship […]
