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!

Helly Hansen

Helly Hansen was created in 1877 when Helly Juell Hansen, a sea captain, and his wife decided to produce oilskin jackets and pants to help stay better protected when out at sea. By applying linseed oil to cotton canvas, they had created waterproof outerwear. In 1949, a new waterproof fabric called Helox, was sewn into the jackets and was considered a revolutionary technology. 

The brand went from strength to strength, creating technical mid and base layers and eventually in 1984 creating a waterproof and breathable fabric - setting a new standard for performance and protection in outdoor clothing. Today sees the brand creating and producing a wide range of everyday clothing but also ranges specifically for skiing, sailing and general outdoor usage.
