A Home Fixture - Hikerdelic x Stockport County F.C

A Home Fixture - Hikerdelic x Stockport County F.C

We've got a pretty decent track record for collaborative projects, here at Hikerdelic. From Barbour, to Kickers, Novesta and Yogi and of course the link-up with Tim Burgess. We're always looking for the next one, though sometimes it can strike when you least expect it.The newest project sees us pair up with our hometown heroes at Stockport County who we've worked with to celebrate our shared roots and heritage with a limited edition capsule collection of clothing. This came about via a chance meeting on a pre-season tour and very quickly started to make lots of sense.  Our Conway Smock takes its name from the heroic escapades of a Stopfordian named James Conway, whose statue sits in the centre of town. It comes in a winning shade of royal blue and features an arm patch designed here in Stockport. It's showerproof, a regular fit and is made from a micro ripstop fabric that ensures durability. It will be available in sizes Small to XXXL, though quantities are super-limited. The artwork from the patch also features on three variations of t-shirt. It contains numerous local references from the famous viaduct to the Wycliffe Church where the club was formed in 1883. There's even a playful twist on the club's former name, a reference to some of the lesser-sung matchday melodies and a nod to County's pioneering Uruguayan manager between 1989 and 1995, Danny Bergara.Limited to just 50 pieces of each garment, the range goes on sale exclusively at the club shop from 11am on Monday 1st April. T-shirts will be priced at £45 and the jacket retails for £140.

Dark Peak T-shirts

Dark Peak T-shirts

We collaborated with local tattoo artist Goblyn Crew to create two limited edition T-shirts inspired by the northernmost and more rugged Peak District landscape, specifically the gritstone planes of Kinder Scout. Let’s set the scene, it’s December, the dark evenings have really set in and a sharp frost is hanging in the air but the peaks are still calling you.  Put on your backpack (the one with the eyes) and take a moonlit stroll amid the weird and wild flora and fauna that keep you company along the way. Or… if you feel like the commute to work is already enough of a trek then channel everything we just depicted by wearing the Dark Peaks tee from the comfort of your home. Available in a khaki green short sleeve and a black long sleeve iteration. Know your Peaks: What is the dark peak you ask in a cautious tone? The Dark Peak is characterized by its higher, gritstone plateaus, moorlands, and rock formations, which give the landscape a darker, grittier appearance. Stanage Edge, Kinder Scout Plateau and The Roaches are all part of the Dark Peak and the area is often associated with more challenging and remote terrain.  The weather can be harsh and the landscape can feel desolate but in a good way that just adds to the area's character and intrigue. It offers a stark contrast to the limestone dales of the White Peak and is also home to a rich variety of hardy flora and fauna which have adapted to the unique, sometimes challenging landscape. You can spot some of these incorporated in the tee design! Kinder Downfall: Notice how Goblyn Crew (his real name is Dan) wrote Hikerdelic in water flowing up the mountain? This represents Kinder downfall and the times when 70mph winds ravage the landscape and cause a phenomena where the waterfall appears to be flowing backwards up the fell.  It’s worth noting there is also a small pool just below Kinder Downfall which is said to be inhabited by a mermaid who may or may not make you immortal if you visit her on Easter eve. Just something to note if you’re heading up there in the Spring and fancy tying in a visit to try your luck.

How did you get into tattooing?I used to do freelance illustration. I spent time in tattoo shops getting tattooed and talking to artists and one thing lead to another.Tell us about your signature style and what is your favourite kind of work to tattoo on people?My work is heavily influenced by traditional tattoos, skateboarding, cartoons, video games and vintage toys. My favourite work to tattoo is custom ideas that clients have thought I could help create. What is your creative process when designing a graphicFor a T-shirt design or a logo etc I usually start with a rough sketch on paper/iPad and pull up a load of reference images. I tend to draw with a general idea in mind and see where it ends up. Then I make a final line-work design and add colour then usually take it into photoshop and illustrator to make the final vectorised image. What does a good start to the day look like for you?Caffeine

Hikerdelic Inner Circle: The Rosellas

Hikerdelic Inner Circle: The Rosellas

The Rosellas have the tunes to make their ambitions a reality as they proved with their previous release ‘’Somewhere Inbetween. The EP went straight to Number #1 in the iTunes Rock Charts and Number #4 in the iTunes UK Album Charts, as well as gaining constant support from legendary tastemakers such as John Kennedy (Radio X) and Jim Salveson (XS Manchester).Rosellas not only prove their versatility yet again with The Same Curse (released 24th November 2023) but foremost their outstanding level of song writing that continues to grow stronger with every release. They bring to the table what many bands struggle to achieve; longevity for years to come.  Have a listen to The Same Curse here We kitted them out for a recent gig and had a chance to ask them a few questions What does a good morning look like for you?  "A good morning is any morning I don’t have to go to work. Or the morning after a big gig is always good, despite the hangover". Describe each band member in one word? Euan - CasualDrew - AssuredMark - Perfectionist Ollie - DJLuis - ChauffeurWhat is your songwriting process?"Me and Drew are the main writers, I always start with chords and he always starts with a riff or lead part, so it works well. We then come together to get a melody and lyrics then take the raw acoustic version to the band to beef it out. It can take anything from an afternoon to a year to finish a tune, so there’s no set length of time". Where can we see you play next & what was your best live experience? "The next gig is in Swansea at the Bunkhouse on December 30th, and the best gig was our recent sold-out headline show at Band on The Wall in Manchester. Was class to hear so many people singing back our songs". Any exciting plans or releases in 2024? Another UK Headline Tour is on the horizon and plenty of big releases are at the ready. Singles and maybe an EP  Shop the Vegetable t-shirt in oatmilk here

Moomin by Hikerdelic

Moomin by Hikerdelic

We've kept this under wraps for a while but we can finally share our latest capsule range, Moomin by Hikerdelic. The collaboration takes root in the shared values of the two brands; Curiosity, adventure and deep respect for the natural world. As a basis for the collection our designer Sophie was granted access to the Tove Jansson archives where she explored the care-free world of Moominvalley and the Moomins situational humour and wisdom arising from the simplicity of everyday life. Soph handpicked quotes and original Tove Jansson comic strip graphics that depict friendship, fishing, and the solace that can be found in heading outdoors and these have been worked into t-shirts, embroidered sweaters, mugs and scarves. The drop is available in a very limited quantity and will undoubtedly make exceptional gifts for any Moomin fans out there or just anyone that resonates with their slow living philosophies of the Moomin way of life.

Hikerdelic Inner Circle: Intrspct Collective

Hikerdelic Inner Circle: Intrspct Collective

Hey Ransford, how's your week going so far? So far i'm having a really good week thank you. With it currently being half-term it means I get a chance to get some rest and spend more time with my family! We saw you were leading a hike over the weekend just gone, how did it go? What was it all about? The INTRSPCT Collective hike was an amazing experience and it went much better than I envisioned. The purpose of the Hike was to raise money for the charity CALM (Campaign Against Living Miserably) who are leading a movement against suicide. Tell us a bit more about INTRSPCT Collective as a whole? Our ultimate goal here at INTRSPCT is to reduce the high rates of suicide and depression within the male community. We endeavour to create a culture of care for men in a world where we may seek belonging in the wrong places and things. We do this through weekly runs and hikes which allows us to build community and connection with one another as we look to change the narrative of what it means to be a man in todays society. We must fight to create and maintain a community of care and vulnerability amongst ourselves and other men around us. It saves lives. Vulnerability amongst men is an anomaly and mostly uncomfortable. However, contrary to what most men are taught to believe, there's strength in vulnerability.    Why do you think community walking or running groups are so prevalent at the moment and why did you feel like it was the right time to start yours? The mental, physical and social benefits of running and walking (especially in a group) are indubitable. I think more people are not just becoming more aware of these benefits but are yearning to get those around them involved as well. Being able to share how good something is with those around you only adds to the joy of it. I started INTRSPCT Collective to create a community of care for men in Manchester to know that contrary to what some are taught to believe, there's stength in vulnerability & weakness. I wanted to create a safe space for men like myself to know that they have the freedom and the space to be themselves. To be challenged. To grow. To learn. To build. To be rooted in community. People often open up more to each other when walking side by side, what is your take on the link between movement and mental health? As a P.E teacher, most of my days are spent teaching pupils about how great movement is, not just for our physical wellbeing but also our mental and social wellbeing.  Community movement, whether that be running, walking, cycling, fitness classes etc are great ways to remove barriers when it comes to building deeply rooted relationships and connections.  The fact that a run or a hike with others can  make us feel so much better physically & mentally makes me believe that we were created to move, and move freely with like minded people through community.

Hikerdelic Inner Circle: Pollen Bakery

Hikerdelic Inner Circle: Pollen Bakery

Waiting for a break in the rain, we did a quick dash from Ancoats to Pollen bakery's new permanent site at Kampus where we had a chat with Connor about what's on the menu, their 28 day sourdough and the other projects on the rise at Manchesters most visually pleasing bakery. You can also spy on the pastry chefs making your bakes which is a huge added bonus if you like a side of people watching with your coffee. Connor styled out one of our tees (we think he has a second career as a model in the making) and also put together a really nice easy-listening playlist with some of his co-workers, ideal for slow Sunday mornings, we'll be sharing that soon too. Are you a tea or a coffee person and what's the best thing on the Pollen bakery menu? Most definitely a coffee person! Best thing on the Pollen Kampus menu at the moment has to be the Isle of White Tomatoes on Toasted 28 Hour Sour.  What does a good morning look like for you? I’m very much an early morning person, having an active dog it makes mornings much more interesting and a good morning would be a nice pourover coffee followed by a big walk, maybe pick up a pastry or two from the many wonderful bakeries near where I live in New Islington, Manchester. I do love getting out to the Peak District as regular as I can and that would definitely be a perfect morning for me.  Please explain, what is 28 hour sourdough?? Our 28 Hour Sour is the name we’ve give our everyday sourdough. It takes 28 hours from mixing the levain to baking each loaf. This applies to all our loaves as we cold ferment the loaves in the fridge and take out in the morning to bake.    Are Pollen working on anything new and exciting at the moment Pollen are currently looking to set up a new website where folks nationwide can order our sourdough to arrive next day. We are also planning some Christmas bits. It may seem early but Christmas is a huge period for a bakery and we need everything to be planned and confirmed. Including design of the packaging of the items we’ve decided on.    Tell us a bit about the Pollen community and the vibes at Pollen Kampus Pollen Kampus is a great place to work with such a caring and hard working team. It feels like a real family vibe throughout all sections whether it’s the pastry, kitchen or front of house team, it just feels like a big family and that just makes it such a warm place for customers to enter whether they are regulars with us or it’s their first time visiting the Kampus site. We have two sites, Pollen Ancoats being the original location and last year Pollen Kampus opened its doors.
