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.

Fjallraven Expedition Down Lite Jacket 

Living on the northern end of the Irish sea, our WCH base is less snow-level gnarly like you'd expect, and more just batterning winds. The kinds that freeze your tears to your face. Nevertheless, winters are cold and I think they're only going to get colder. So come the likes of Fjallraven. Founded over 50 years ago, Fjallraven have made a massive name for themselves in the outerwear market making some of the most recognised gear out there with their Ovik, Kiruna and Greenland ranges, as well as a camp in the fashion markets with their Kanken bags. Sweden, however, is pushing polar territory, so Fjallraven have delivered some gigantic jackets to go play with the penguins in. 

In 1974 the Expedition Down Jacket was released. An incredibly warm and protected design that was worn by many who ventured far north. With the expansion of modern technology and a little new design work, here we have the Expedition Lite. The jacket does nothing to sacrifice its warmth. The filling is 90% goose down with 10% feathers which is compacted into lots of large lightweight pockets around the jacket which come together to provide you with 700 CUIN fill-power. This filling weight is only 480g so you can stay unencumbered as you hike. The lining of the jacket is then 100% polyamide - weather resistant and durable - and finished with a PFC-free impregnation. 

In terms of design we have two large handwarmers which double up with a button-fastening to make a second pocket. On the inside you'll also find two elasticated pouches to the hem and a zip-up internal security pocket. An oversized hood allows room for extra insulation or a helmet and is adjustable with a drawstring, as is the hem, and it features elasticated cuffs. A zip-up front with a snap-closing stormflap seals you in. Finished with an embroidered logo to the chest, you can rep the iconic arctic fox in the actual arctic. Perfect for a well planned winter holiday to the northern lights. 

This jacket is oversized of course, to provide you with room for an extra coat or sweatshirts underneath.

    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.

    Estimated Delivery Dates

    Estimated Delivery Dates are given on Pre-Order and Pre-Launch products. They are for indication purposes only and can change at any time without notice.
