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.

 

Radio Leeds

Listeners to Radio Leeds on Saturday morning wouldn’t have expected us to be in their ears – we got offered the chance to go and talk trousers to Johnny I’Anson (he’s not Lisa’s brother). You can hear us from the 1hr 40min mark – http://bbc.in/2iNs6zw

#bundobustmcr

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 […]

Here’s a video of Tommy working in his workshop, making an Ultimate Belt, that predates our new Garrison […]

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 […]

That Video

Late last year we made a video to launch our company on Kickstarter. It still sums up everything we are doing and want to do in the future. It was shot by Tim Royle and music was provided by Mr Wilson’s Second Liners. We’ll be bringing our story up to date with a new video soon, […]

Workwear

Richard is a window cleaner who works in Hebden Bridge. He wears his pair of HebTroCo trousers every day for work, all year round, and he tells us that he loves the feel of them and their hard wearing quality. The trousers have a hard life and have creased and faded with daily wear. We […]

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 […]

Less is more?

The great thing about having your own trouser company is that you get to make yourself the ultimate pair of shorts. With rising temperatures I wanted something cooler but didn’t want to lose the luxury of moleskin. Unfortunately we’ve no plans to make these because they’re hardly any cheaper to make than full length trousers and would […]
