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.

 

Kingdom

Our friend AJ Wilkinson, is a professional photographer with many years experience. He had an exhibition scheduled. You’ll never guess what happened next? A global pandemic prevented his dream from coming true so we got our heads together to bring his work into the public space. Virtual gatherings have started to get a bit tiring […]

Washing your selvedge denim

You’ve bought a lovely pair of selvedge jeans. As they get older and start to fade you want to create your own fade lines rather than have the washing machine do it. Washing denim is about being gentle and avoiding creasing so we’re going to do a soak wash in a bath or sink. LUKEWARM […]

How We Started HebTroCo

Released in 2017 – this was the video we made in our first year of business. From the highs of our Kickstarter campaign to the lows of having to get 176 pairs of trousers shipped and made in a factory that hadn’t seen demand like it for years.

A-Ward Winning Garage

Award winning? Yeah – it’s owned by Adrian Ward. We’ve known Ade for a while. He’s got a really interesting garage. The car is a recreation of the Jappic cyclecar – the original held every speed record from 1/4 mile to 100 km for under 350 cc, it’s taken me 6 years to build it. […]

Two years ago we went electric

Two years ago this week, Ed was pedaling his new electric cargo bike home to Yorkshire, all the way from Copenhagen. Brant wisely had his bike delivered in the normal way.

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 […]

Beautiful Bradford has for too long been thought of as being a bit rubbish. But not anymore! There are some great places to visit in this historic city, that was once known as the wool capital of England. One of our favourite places is the Record Cafe on North Parade. It’s ‘all at the same […]

Made in Britain, heavy construction, Commando soles, comfortable from day one. Wore them for nine hours a day all week. Tough as old […]
