Working Class Heroes was set up in 2006 with a mission to sell select men's street wear from around the globe to the good people of Ulverston, Cumbria. We still hold this close to our hearts but now aim to reach slightly further a field with our website.

We are not a massive corporate site. We are not owned by a group of executive directors that have little contact with customers. We order stock, photograph it, pack it and then dispatch it. We are here to deal with your enquiries, feedback and provide you with a personal service ensuring that you get the products you want on time every time.

If you call the shop you will speak to Tom, Rob, Adam or Edd. Let us know what you think, because we care!

If you’re anything like us, you probably got completely confused at the ending of Interstellar.

How is it possible that one man can travel through multiple dimensional boundaries, save our dystopian future from famine and drought, and still look a total geezer? Carhartt, obviously.

One IMAX sized silver lining to this blockbuster, is that even in such an uneasy socio-environmental climate, we’ll still be wearing our Weathered Duck jackets.




From it’s very beginnings in 1882, 5 men and 2 sewing machines paved the way for a wealth timeless work gear. Originally crafting bibs for railroad workers, it’s now found itself at the heart of the ‘10s alternative movement with an accompanying casuals brand.

There’s something especially comfortable in knowing our great-grandparents probably owned something Carhartt, and served them well.

It’s surely a testament to the Carhartt brand - its ability to transcend the endless shifts of fashion, and still retain its identity.


Weird place to put a pencil


Luckily for you, we stock both.

Whether we consider its early beginnings, or its apparent, triumphant future, we know we’ll be wearing it – and so will Matthew McConaughey.
