Cumbria-based sportswear store Working Class Heroes are known for stocking the latest and greatest fashion has to offer, and this week they’ve curated an Autumnal drop and lookbook like no other. Featuring new pieces from the likes of Clarks, Kavu and Universal Works – you may remember our review of the latter’s 2020 B.C. fits from earlier on in the month, they’ve even taken it all out for a test drive on the lakes, making sure if the cold hits, we hit back twice as hard…
WORKING CLASS HEROES
The Cumbria-based sportswear store have just unleashed their best drop yet.
Universal Works Padded Short Parka
This Parka ticks all of our outerwear boxes. Long but not dress length? Check. Beautiful washed-out Olive hue? Check. Plenty of functional pockets and sleek fastenings? Double-check. Gallagher bro’s eat your heart out… £445.
Universal Works Bakers Chore Jacket
Another Universal Works must-have is their signature Bakers Jacket. Modelled on the brands’ founder and designer David Keyte’s father’s Chore coat, this iteration has been given a winter-esque re-up, made from a toasty blend of 80% wool and 20% polyamide in thick herringbone weave. Did we mention the beyond autumnal Urban Mex print too? You can just hear the crunch of a thousand golden leaves when you see this warm wonder. £297.
Universal Works Everyday Super Fine Cord Shirt
This sleek utility shirt has an air of Raf Simons about it – meaning it’s totally gorgeous and coyly youthful. Minimal in nature, the shirt opts for a classic UW silhouette using a 100% cotton super-fine cord fabric for a smooth and comfy finish in burgundy, black and sand. We said the jackets were must-haves, but I suppose you need to have something underneath, right? £89.
Clarks Originals Wallabee Shoes
You’d have to of been living under a rock for the past billion years if you haven’t laid eyes on Clarks’ signature Wallabee boot. WCH have selected the most dazzling colourways the brand have ever created for this week’s drop, boasting a mouth-watering mustard suede and a smooth, deep purple too. To quote a boob job getting Cameron Diaz in Bad Teacher – “I’ll take two!”. £120.
Kavu Teannaway Fleece
Hailing all the way from Seattle is Kavu’s lightweight Teannaway Fleece – for those unpredictable days that have you sweating one minute and shivering the next. Boasting prints of monochrome pineapple’s, arcade flooring and festival-ready Aztec, they’re even fitted kangaroo pockets and 100% microfleece overlays, ensuring warmth at all times. £80.
