Happen - HebTroCo


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.


James Brown came to town

It was great to see James Brown in Trouser Town this week. James was editor of the NME and Loaded magazine back in the ’90’s, and was passing through Hebden Bridge on the way to a football match. So he popped in to see us and try on trousers, drink tea and chat, before heading […]

We took a trip out of the packing office for our first lunch of Christmas at Bundobust Manchester yesterday. We’ve been big fans of their Leeds set up, an amalgamation of craft beer, South Indian vegetarian street food, shabby chic and lovely staff. Manchester proved to be much the same, located on the corner of […]

Where are my f*cking trousers?

Brant. Thanks for the reply last week. I could have been an arse but what’s the point in that? World’s full of them! If you manufacture low volume high end product there will always be production issues. What you need is time and space to resolve, not customer rants. I watched the video and I […]

Buttons not zips

Our trousers have buttons. Not zips. It’s a point of love and hate. Polarising and awkward. But we’re not doing it to be difficult. A trouser isn’t a static item. It moves. You move. The whole garment moves. And buttons allow your trousers to move and bend and shape far more dynamically than any zip […]

Cotton tales

Came across these folk today, commemorating the Cotton Famine of 1861-65. It was the American Civil War and cotton bales weren’t coming over to the East Lancashire/West Yorkshire mills. It was also a time of recession after over production and consequently a time of poverty for the workers. The cobbled Rooley Moor Road, that this […]
