After what you can see was a very busy and sucessful hand event, we can’t wait for our next one. If you would like to be our next event, get in touch!
Here at H&H we thought you may appreciate a little reminder of the summer to ease the transition.
A few of us at Hawthorne & Heaney are quite keen on or cars which may have been alluded to recently by the appearance of the Heaney Motors Ford Galaxie 500.
H&H were given the opportunity to sponsor this beautiful American muscle car which took part in its first race at the Brighton Speed Trials 2017.
The vintage and muscle car scene is an excellent opportunity for customisation and modification and not with just the cars !
Our driver, with an existing addiction to vintage motor patches, jumped at the chance to have bespoke overalls made. With a vintage American style font to match the car made in a patch for the back (patches are important here so that the integrity of the fire retardant suit is not compromised).
H&H also strayed a little from embroidery and worked together with Kituoutkustoms to create a vintage decal for the car. We sourced some vintage look machine turned light gold vinyl which was cut with a black to create a shadow. The effect worked with the nature of the car and was such a pleasure to work on with the car wrap specialists in Hoddeston.

The race day was the last real day of Summer and was such an enjoyable event. With an eclectic mix of cars both vintage and modern and the Heaney Motors Galaxie certainly stood out in the crowd !

From Friday the 2nd to Sunday the 4th of October, Hawthorne and Heaney spent the weekend demonstrating luxury hand monogramming at the Hardy Amie’s concession in Harrods.
The Autumn/Winter “Made to Measure” event at Harrods focused on customisation in premium men’s tailoring, showing how different items can be personalised. Hand monogramming presented by Hawthorne and Heaney is a skill that requires attention to detail, patience and practice in order to produce pieces of the high quality that was shown over the weekend.
The font was designed for the event by Hawthorne and Heaney, and looks stunning when embroidered onto one of Hardy Amie’s shirts. There was a range of different colours and positions of monogramming presented during the weekend demonstration, including this subtle white on white example of a cuff monogram.
