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.

 

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 […]

Slamdrover

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 […]

Matthew Southward

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

We make everything in Britain. It’s what we do. All the components in our clothing are, where possible, sourced in the UK. There was always something that was staring us in the face that wasn’t quite right. Until now. Now all our garments come with British Buttons. People tried to put us off, telling us […]

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 […]
