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.

Albam GD Hooded Parka 

Blurring the lines between iconic utilitarian silhouettes and more modern styles and detailing, Albam are a contemporary menswear company, founded in 2006, and for over a decade now they've been producing some amazing designs that are stocked both in their two London stores, as well as all over the world in different shops and showrooms. We're overjoyed to bring their brand up to the Lakes, and to your computer screen. This jacket is a casual piece of outerwear that's ideal for spring weather when there's still a nip in the air. 

The silhouette is a rework of a classic parka-style, which takes lots of inspiration from a smock design. It's made from 100% cotton which is constructed into a classic British twill. This fabric is extremely soft and comfortable, and provides lightweight warmth whilst allowing breathability. It has ventilation holes in the underarms for additional air flow. It has raglan sleeves which provides a greater range of motion. 

The body has a large, square fit which has a button-up front leading to an oversized hood. The sleeves are regular and have elasticated cuffs. The jacket has two large pockets, a drawcord hem and metallic detailing on the holes and buttons. The hood has a buckle and drawcord as well to adjust the large sizing. 

Despite the large, boxy torso, this jacket is still a regular fit, and we'd recommend buying your usual. As a regular medium, I'll for sure be wearing one of these up in the mountains this spring.

    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.
