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!

Heroes wear Vests

Whichever way you look at it, Nakatomi Plaza was overrun with a bad case of the Rickman’s before McClane stepped in and showed Gruber the quickest way to the ground floor.


Admittedly, as with all acts of derring-do, you can’t make an omelette without breaking a few eggs. Or, in John’s case … legs. It cannot be denied that John’s interference with the heist resulted in way more death, carnage and insurance paperwork for the Nakatomi legal team than would’ve been the case if he and his vest simply let Hans rob the gaff, but a film about a compliant police officer who advises fellow hostages to simply allow the robbery to proceed without conflict so as to expedite a safe and non-violent resolution to the affair doesn’t add up to one of the greatest action movies of all time, does it? Better to let him run around in his vest cutting an iconic figure into the psyche of a generation or two.

The absence of footwear, however much we think that adds to the mix, was a regrettable scenario to find him in. Belting around the floors, ducts and vents of the tower would’ve been a shit load easier if he’d had the foresight to slam on a pair of fresh kicks.
He should’ve been wearing some of these bad boys, too.
