We went looking for this newsagent Burrows in Ely simply because it was original so hadn’t been messed around with. Has been in the same family since 1898 bought a copy of Esquire but I clocked ID magazine first , they have customers for both .. good to hear and to see #workhousengland #hackneyunionworkhouse #independentstore #idmagazine #idmagazinecover #esquire #esquiremagazine

It immediately occurred to me how great it would be if I could create ZERO waste when making our clothes. There is a heap of small of cuts, the bits in-between the cut pattern. Does anyone have a answer ? #workhousengland #hackneyunionworkhouse #zerowaste #zeroeasteliving #offcutsandremnants #offcuts #britishfactories #madeinengland

No summer should be without a Summer Linen Jacket. Linen needs far less water to grow than Cotton. Can only be a good thing for the Planet 🌍. Made in England like everything we do. @andrewhowegv @ahumanlovestory @gghqlondon @wearelinen #workhousengland #hackneyunionworkhouse #linen #summerclothes #linenjacket

Vincent Linen Gilet - a signature Workhouse Piece. It’s a great vibrant green. Nice to have some colour in your wardrobe especially on a summers day. Linen is a gift of NATURE. Believe in it ! Thank you @andrewhowegv @ahumanlovestory @gghqlondon #workhousengland #summerclothes #mensgilet #linen

A shot from The 1900 Island now on BBC2. A remarkable journey taking four families back to 1900 to live as a rural fishing community on the wild and remote island of Llanddywyn Wales. #workhousengland #hackneyunionworkhouse #halleystevensons #bbc2 #clothesforfilm #wardrobe #bbcdrama #bbcwales

I finally got around to watching the Mc Queen documentary this morning having heard some good comments and some horrendous ones. Was he a talent was he a genius ? He was all of them and treated his closest friends badly. Life hey .. thinking of my own mortality.

Designing working on Linen shirts for summer. It’s super lightweight 100% Linen grown in Belgium and produced in Belgium. Feels right to be working with a local ethical Mill. Some elements of the next collection are inspired by Hockney having visited the Van Gogh Museum recently and tipped off by my good friend @spikespijker on a recent trip in Amsterdam that was Hockney Exhibition on. I was so up for learning and stayed all afternoon I think I went around at least 4 times. My love of linen all started when I met @gghqlondon at Premier Vision Paris . There is so much to know ! #workhousengland #hackneyunionworkhouse #belgiumlinen #ethicalfashion #ethicalclothing #ilovelinen #ethicallymade #ethicalsourcing

There is a date for the BBC living history program Workhouse England worked on. It was a great experience creating and making so many outfits must have been nearly 100 pcs. It’s four families living like it was 1900 on a most beautiful island in North Wales. Put it your diary !! Many thanks to @wildflameproductions for asking us to work on this wonderful program. #workhousengland workhousengland #hackneyunionworkhouse #wales #bbc #bbc2#bbcwales #livinghistory#wildflameproductions

I had keep a mental picture of this gentleman. I literally saw him at a bus stop. I love his whole outfit the colours and knitwear even looked better for buttoning up wrong. I love a beret but it all works so well together. #workhousengland #hackneyunionworkhouse #outfits #beret #cardigan #busstop #genetleman

The selfie ! Whilst suit shopping for my oldest friend in Marble Arch London. We found exactly what he wanted and had lunch and back home for a nap ! We must have walked miles through Nottinghill Gate this morning. I surprised my self putting on A Chinwest jacket ( revised version) with the Captain Trousers and the Savoy Brown cap, all @workhousengland . What a set up ! #workhousengland #hackneyunionworkhouse #setup #cotton #cap #flatcap #selfie

I have been working on making suits for a secret client. Making suits with construction and cutting techniques used on Savile Row. It’s the first time I’ve done this and it’s new to the factory but we have all risen to the challenge. it’s really exciting to see how good the jackets are coming out. They are all looking so PEACHY !! All thanks and guidance to Gray the Master pattern cutter we would be a loss without you ! #workhousengland #hackneyunionworkhouse #suit #tailoring #savilerow #suitsupply #madeinengland #madeinlondon

Selling Workhouse to the “ Younger Generation “ It always looks good in them , they al need their dads to buy it though !

Graham “ fixing patterns “ his skill to understand why the trouser does not fit properly as the factory has been making it incorrectly and then to put it right was a great relief. I feel very lucky to have such a master pattern cutter coming to the studio. He’s coming back soon to work on a new Garments ! #workhousengland #hackneyunionworkhouse #patterncutting #patterncorrections

It has a feeling of the Clash doing everything ourselves. When they hand stencilled slogans it’s DIY. It’s doing by hand makes on our kitchen table still that makes it real. #workhousengland #hackneyunionworkhouse #labels #washinginstructions #theclash #punk

A summer Jacket in linen then washed this you get a bashed look. Not everyone can pull this off in fact it’s hard to make Garments that this scruffy. It’s my personal jacket. Does anyone else like it ? #workhousengland #hackneyunionworkhouse #linenjacket #washedlinen

The “ Theo shirt “ named after the most important person in Vincent’s life his brother. I remember when I worked out the shape I did keep thinking of Roger Moore it is the sort of shirt he would wear. Either way it came out well. #workhousengland #hackneyunionworkhouse #vincentvangogh #rogermoore007 #summershirt
