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.

Lee 101 Storm Rider Jacket 

All the way back in 1933 Lee released one of its finest and more iconic numbers - The Storm Rider. A simple and classic sillhouette, it was a rigid denim jacket, collar, buttons, pockets, you get the deal.

'Two men, dessed in denim jackets and trousers and wearing black shapeless hats' - Of Mine And Men was the bane of my existence for a whole year at school, but I can't help but remember that line, 'cause two American Depression field hands were almost certainly kitted out in Lee 101 - tough, reliable and built to last. 

Now with a bit of modern thinking for the cold winters we're facing, the classic jacket has been reworked. Cut from 15oz of natural indigo denim from US fabric-maker Cone Mills, who have traditionally worked denim on old timey machinery since 1891, this tough outer has been contrasted with a soft and flexible winterized wool lining which provides you with some premium insulation whilst you strut the fields of the modern day - which to be fair are usually just parks in cities but that's fine, it'll protect you against our more modernized hardships. This wool is top-line heavy duty melange twill with subtle integrated polyester and cotton input. Material-wise, it's finished with a windproof corduroy collar.

In terms of design however, you'll find two classic side welt pockets acting as handwarmers, as well as two button-down chest pockets, a hip length and buttoned cuffs. Designed in America, made with help from Japan, sold by us. Hit up that vintage look.
