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.


Denmark to England by bike in January

When Denmark is mentioned some people first think of Vikings, butter, bacon and mid century wooden furniture. Not us though, we think of super cool bicycles and world leading craft beer. Back in the summer when it was warm we decided to order modern cargo bicycles with electric assist motors to help us ship our […]

Meet Your Maker #1 Honest Thomas

When you see Tommy in his workshop you can tell that he’s not pretending. You don’t get much more authentic than a man in a workshop, skilfully hitting a piece of metal on an anvil to make something beautiful. The objects that fill his working space and his look are all very stylish, but this […]

Saturday 2nd December, 12 – 5pm, The Triangle, 47 Bradford Road, Shipley, Bradford, BD18 3DS Two years ago, on the 2nd December 2015, two men walked into a pub. That was us.

True ‘Til Death Tattoo Pop Up

It was like getting the band together again. We’ve all collaborated on different projects over the last few years and it’s cool to see how each of our independent, small businesses have grown. Tattoo machines buzzing, the snip of the barber’s scissors, good beer flowing, tunes booming out from the HebTroCo sound system and all […]

We Make Menswear

This is Charlotte. We’ve just started a series of features in Happen called “Self Made”. It’s all about men who inspire us and in the feature there are photographs of these men looking good in HebTroCo gear. We did wonder whether we should write “people” who inspire us, because obviously there are many inspirational women […]

Self Made

Hello we are brant and Ed. We used to go to the pub together and didn’t know anything about clothes. This time two years ago brant was wearing odd looking running shoes, baggy jeans and a fleece that a man gave him in Taiwan, where he used to go a lot as part of his job […]

Moto Boots in the Wild

We like spotting our gear out there in the world and so were chuffed to see this photo. Taken by Jonny Wilson Photography back in the summer, it features Rob riding his bike wearing HebTroCo Moto Boots. He bought these boots from us at the Motorcycle Social pop up that we did in Leeds and […]

Black suit in a tunnel

The Headstone Tunnel travels for 487m underneath Monsal Head near Bakewell in Derbyshire. We went there to shoot photos of our new Governor Jacket and Trousers. The tunnel is lit during daylight hours and links the picturesque Monsal Dale, with its wooded river valley, limestone crags and impressive viaduct, to nearby Thornbridge and Bakewell. Black […]

80% of Motorcycle Winter Camp Out Sold Out

The summer is packed with motorcycle events. They are getting more and more slick. We are organising an alternative to this with our good pals from Sideburn Magazine. It will be a small event, in potentially freezing weather, with camping and it’s happening on the top of the Pennines. Even more remarkable is that fact […]

Boots are in stock

We called in to the William Lennon & Co factory last week. They make the Moto and Chukka boots, exclusively for us, and have a history of making traditional, heavy work boots that goes back to 1899. The business is still run by the same family that set it up originally. They are lovely people […]

We get a lot of enquiries. The usual stuff. From “influencers” and people on the blag. And then some completely out of the ordinary like this one. A TV production company called up, with credit card in hand, and ordered two Garrison belts, to use as the bonnet straps on this Land Rover project. No […]

Secret Pocket

Did you know that there is a secret pocket in every pair of HebTroCo trousers? The secret pocket has eluded many people who own and have even been wearing our trousers for some time. The secret pocket is made from the same heavy cotton pocketing material as the pocket itself. A bit like a nice […]

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 […]
