bit by bit we are clearing out all the corners where stock resides.

the product designers have been going through the boxes of beautiful samples that we had no room for in the production ranges.

today we took the blackboard van, full to the brim to the shop with one off's.

so if you have ever been to our sample sales, and you are in the area, then drop in to get a real bargain.

and the sea is warm, so pack your coZZie if you come.

We had a weekend of building in the sun.

Our house is warmed by fire wood only and until now the wood has been piled under tarpaulins.

So we got all the busted pallets from work, hammers, nails, rope, pen knives, chain saws, rakes, mitre saws, brushes and matches and we built 3/4 a new woodshed so that we have kindling, small logs, big dry logs and big logs to dry all ready.

We ran out of nails and wood before we finished putting the roof on.

A great feeling of satisfaction, and heat from the sun.

Nice weekend

NEW T-shirt of the week - Handlebar

  • Posted by pete
  • 18 September 2008

This week's T-shirt of the Week is 'Handlebar'.

We're big on facial hair here at howies. There's something quite dignified and
distinguished about a gentleman with a bit of facial furniture, don't you think?

Paul is currently sporting a rather splendid beard, Tidy Mike is renowned as
a bit of a hairy beast too and Anna, well she's got a great 'tache but she
bleaches hers (joke!).

Nobody has quite reached this chap's standard yet though. That is just about
the finest handlebar I have ever seen. A facial sensation.

Designed by those spiffing chaps over at Dye Holloway Murray.
Available on Sky for men and women.

While we're at it, better have a look at this too

our brand and our shops are built by the people. they are the most important thing for it to work.

you got to love people.
you have to want to look after customers like a traditional outfitters. like they are your family.
you have got to love sport, art, photography, the world, words, design, doodling and outdoors.
you need to know what howies is and what we are doing.
you need to care about the little stuff.
and let's be honest, you have got to want to work in a shop.

we have learned a lot in Carnaby street, and want people who can help us constantly challenge and change normal retail.

think 1kg of a traditional outfitters shop
1 jug of creative world
4 floz inspiration
pinch of sport
a bunch of energy
table spoon of learning
2 steps into the unknown
1 egg

Bristol is an important step for us to do more stores, so the staff must just be brilliant.

We need a manager who will be more like a curator, and 6 other staff to make it all happen.

if it ain't you maybe you know somebody.

We have teamed up with some great friends over at Folksy to run a competition which will run
alongside London Design Festival Week.

If you want to enter have a look at the Brief

howies will select a shortlist of 11 pieces for display in the Carnaby St. store. This will be publicised through London Design Week. The public will vote on the pieces on display and a winner chosen. It's a great opportunity to exhibit to the the design community (as well as the public) and receive some recognition for your work.

So why not have a go, if you don't have a go come and have a look.
