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.

Bellroy slim leather wallets

Bellroy has a narrow set of clear goals and this leads to a wallet that hits the goals of those who strive to make some of the best out there.

The aim is to produce wallets that are great on the eye and even better to the touch. They need to be made in an environmentally sustainable way and durability is essential. 

Bellroy leather wallets are clean, simple and have great design features that keep the bulk in your pockets down to a minimum. The vegetable tanned leather is not only a great idea for the environment but provides a wallet with a great feel and should last you a long time.

One of the best ways to make a product environmentally friendly is to ensure it last a long time. With strong stitching and tightly woven lining the wallets will do you some good mileage and as the leather ages with the wear you put it through, you will not want to replace.

Wallets range from the small card holder to the full travel wallet with passport holder and pen. The one for us is the note sleeve which provides plenty of card holders and room for cash.
