Born in the Pub in 2015

Back in 2015 we had an idea in the pub – was it possible to support small British manufacturers with production sized orders, and get people wearing and using British made products again?

We told everyone we were going to do it. So we had to!

We started with trousers – We found out that Hebden Bridge, where we lived, used to be known as Trousertown, because it made over 20,000 pairs of trousers a week. That’s a million pairs a year. At the time, we didn’t know much about trousers, but we had been wearing them all our lives, which had to count for something.

HebTroCo was launched on Kickstarter, a crowd funding website, at the end of January 2016, with the aim to sell an initial batch of 176 pairs of trousers. We sold that batch in five hours, so we quit our jobs, and committed to HebTroCo full time. It seems to be working. We’ve added denim jeans, shirts, socks, hats and other paraphernalia working with makers, mills and factories right here in Britain. Everything is British Made To Last and exclusive to HebTroCo

brant

(bald, lowercase b, designer, you know the sort…) Having had a  life in bicycle design and brand development, everything changed after a stupid idea in the pub. My manufacturing experience started with me sewing trousers for my teddy bear, making tents and bivibags, panniers for my bike as a teenager. Somehow, textiles dissapeared into the background and I became a cycling journalist, then a brand manager, designing bike frames for myself and thousands of other people – whether that’s super fast carbon fibre road bikes, or full on downhill race bikes. Now I’m applying everything I’ve learnt, with consumer-direct business models, manufacturing efficiency and 40+ years of wearing clothes, to bring production quantities back to our local area so I can pick my children up from school rather than having to fly half way around the world to check quality.

Ed

(Beard, tattoos, motorbike, that sort…) For the 7 years before HebTroCo I worked in the outdoor industry running my own mountain bike skills and guiding business. My working life started out in community arts, leading drama, video and music projects, mostly with groups of young people. Practical work has always had appeal and I worked as a massage therapist for 10 years with practices in Hebden Bridge and Leeds. All my jobs have had the common thread of working with people and trying to make them happy. Menswear was the obvious next step. Oh and I ride motorbikes or bicycles most days and I drink beer and like playing records. I don’t have a TV.
