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.

  • Does my parcel have tracking information?

    We can track all of our parcels. Even our free shipping option uses a 2D barcoding system, which allows you to see the last scanned location of your parcel.

    If you require tracking information for your parcel, please contact us via email, and we will be able to provide that for you.

    My tracking information says a parcel has been delivered, but I don't have a missed delivery note. What can I do?

    If the tracking for your parcel shows your parcel has been delivered, but you haven't received anything, you should:

    • Check if someone else at your address has accepted it.
    • Look around the delivery location. Your parcel may have been left with a neighbour or in a safe place like a porch or garage.
    • Contact the carrier if there's still no sign of the parcel.
    • Arrange a redelivery with the carrier through their website.
