Working Class Heroes was set up in 2006 with a mission to sell select men's street wear from around the globe to the good people of Ulverston, Cumbria. We still hold this close to our hearts but now aim to reach slightly further a field with our website.

We are not a massive corporate site. We are not owned by a group of executive directors that have little contact with customers. We order stock, photograph it, pack it and then dispatch it. We are here to deal with your enquiries, feedback and provide you with a personal service ensuring that you get the products you want on time every time.

If you call the shop you will speak to Tom, Rob, Adam or Edd. Let us know what you think, because we care!

Name
Tom

Job Description
Boss, Buyer, In Store Musical Co-ordinator.

Best Part of the Job
I pretty much love the whole lot. I set up Working Class Heroes in 2006 after a brief but truly awful career as a deputy manager in a leading supermarket chain. (Other truly awful careers are also available) Buying would be the very best part of the job, getting to see all the new styles and colour ways months in advance and bagging the odd free sample! Enforcing my music on the rest of the guys in the shop. They hate it, they are wrong!

Worst Part of the Job
Somehow it is my job to clean the bog, how has that happened?

Top Tune
Daft Punk - Da Funk

Top Sneaks

Rob

Web Manager, "Photographer", Deputy Instore Musical Co-ordinator/Critic.

Best Part of the Job
Discount coffee from next door. Ripping Tom for his retro-electronica-house-dance-step-dub music and dance moves. He cuts messed up shapes.

Worst Part of the Job
When Tom models clothes for the website I fear I've seen too much.

Top Tune
Changes frequently but at the moment Taping Songs Off The Radio by Lower than Atlantis.

Name
Harry

Job Description
Shop Manager and Chief Tea Boy

Best Part of the Job
I am allowed to say staff discount! Nice place to work. Tom, Rob and Olivia are a good laugh, plus we don't start until 10 everyday.

Worst Part of the Job
Spending most my wages on new stock and\or pies from the shop next door.

Top Tune
Just like Rob I am unable to make any real decisions in life, so my top tune this week is Untitled by the Architects.

Top Sneaks
Adidas Busenitz, think I now own every colour way. Stop making them Adidas!! I have no room for any more.

Dream Ride
I saw a 2 litre turbo VW Sirocco in white and slammed on massive wheels. I got uncomfortably exited by the whole thing!

Best Part of the Job
Obviously coming in and listening to Tom's sterling 'life lessons'. But really it's a pretty chilled place to work. And not having to clean the loo is the best!

Tom's music, Tom's dancing, not having milk in the 'kitchen'.
