Whilst the upper classes dress down to go out, the working class dress up.

Dating back to the second half of the 19th century, and ever since, sub-cultures have been created and driven almost exclusively by those in the working class communities. Starting with the Scuttlers of Manchester in the 1870's and their monotony towards life in the slums, advancing through to the Teddy Boys, Mods and Rockers era of the 50's, through to the Punk and Skin scenes, Ska, Reggae, the 80's and 90's skate scene, right up to today's contemporary minimalism. They were all the brainchild of those fighting for an identity - an identity that correlates conclusively with fashion - so it makes sense to call these people heroes.

With this premise as his inspiration, Working Class Heroes was founded in 2006 by Thomas Bowden. The initial intent was to sell a range of skate and street clothing from all around the globe to the good people of Ulverston, Cumbria, from his tiny shop in a shady looking alleyway. Since 2006 the company has moved to a bigger, better, less creepy location, sweeping up new brands, stories and people along the way.

Our ranges of footwear, clothing and homeware is comprised of a brand mix that appeals to us. Not one that follows a particular genre or alignment, but one that we feel goes together, blurring the lines between distinctions and classifications in order to create something beautiful.

Arcteryx Beta SL Jacket

With over quarter of a century on top, Arcteryx have been developing state of the art outdoor gear, from jackets and bags to simple tee's. With every item having a specific use in mind, they have even created specialist equipment for police and military with their LEAF range. Their symbol on some of the greatest jackets we've seen in our store, we can't recommend them enough for your next jacket splash out. 

Designed to stay unnoticed until it’s needed, the SL, which stands for 'Super Light', is a compressible waterproof which is incredibly breathable and weighs a scant 315 grams, making it amazingly functional for longer trips. The shell is made from a cut of N40r GORE-TEX fabric which is 100% waterproof. I've seen it in action, and it's almost as if there's no moisture at all. With Paclite product technology, the Beta is a perfect travel companion. 

Careful, efficient construction techniques allow Arcteryx to use micro seam allowances and tiny GORE seam tape which reduces fabric requirements and improves breathability. Carefully articulated patterning and gusseted underarms provide freedom of movement without adding bulk. The low profile StormHood offers complete coverage with a streamlined design. This is a true minimalist’s hardshell, designed to be light, small and efficient. You don't need much more for a well planned trip.

I would wear this jacket to the pub for sure, I would probably purposely start a conversation about it too!

    Slim Fit: Slim fitting, sitting close to the body, great for showing of your guns and pecks.

    Regular Fit: Neither slim nor oversized. Regular-fitting garments that are bang in the middle. The middle is good.

    Relaxed Fit: Drapes loosely on the body, baggy fit.


    Run the tape around the fullest part of your chest, the tape should be just below the arm pit and over the shoulder blades whilst horizontal to the floor.


    Measure around your natural waist as show in the diagram


    Measure your inside leg from crotch to ankle blone keeping your leg straight: not as easy as it sounds, you could take a pair of trousers that you already own, that fit you well, and measure from the crotch to the bottom of the leg.


    This is a bit more tricky! Measure from the top of your spine (at the bottom of your neck) to your elbow and on the your wrist


    You should place the beginning of the measuring tape behind your shoulder, and feed it out following your arm making sure to pass both the elbow joint and the wrist, as pictured. You should take the measurement at the point where you would like the sleeve to end. This is usually just past your wrist.

    With Pre-Order, you can purchase the latest items added to our store in advance of them arriving with us.

    You Pre-Order is prioritised (at no additional charge); meaning that, as soon as the product arrives with us, we can wrap it straight back up and get it sent out to you - it often never even hits the stock room shelves!


    With Pre-Launch, the date when we expect to receive the product ourselves is still a little too hazy to be confident in accepting Pre-Orders.

    So, instead, you can submit your email address against the item you are interested in and we will email you as soon as stock arrives on the system.
