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 Atom SL Hoody 

With over 25 years of experience in the outdoor market, Arcteryx were founded in Vancouver, British Columbia, as a company prided on developing the finest technical gear and kit for active adventurers. Their garments have been created for everything from recreational winter sports and hiking to the specialist gear in their LEAF range - 'Law Enforcement and Armed Forces - so they know a thing or two about targeting specific functionality. 

This jacket is an extremely lightweight option for protection when out on the trail. It's hard to navigate weather, even in summer, and so if a rainy or cold spell rolls in it's best to be prepared with a quality jacket, and the Atom SL is designed to handle climate shifts. 

It wields a shell made from Tyono 20 shell material that uses fine denier yarns that allow a fabric configuration that is surprisingly strong for its weight, and is supported by a lightweight elasticated Torrent fleece that allows a comfortable and ergonomic fit which balances air permeability with wind resistance, which has a Polygiene finish which manages odour. On the inside the jacket uses small pockets of Coreloft compact insulation which weighs next to nothing and insulates, even when wet. 

The general features of the jacket include two zip-up handwarmer pockets and an articulated StormHood and cuffs, as well as gusseted underarms which come together to provide a great range of movement which is important for climbing more technical terrain. The jacket uses a DWR (Durable Water Repellent) finish for additional protection and specially navigated placement of the insulation and the trim fit minimizes bulk. A perfect jacket for any technical adventurer.

    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.
