Working Class Heroes’ latest drop is all about 90s raves and rural caves. Would you believe that the match sparking this fuse just happened to be a new pair of Polar Skate Co.’s Big Boy jeans? With one thing leading to another, the boys somehow ended up at Rydal Water in Cumbria to test out their new fits. Not ones to be under-dressed for the occasion, you can bet this was just an excuse for the outerwear aficionados to try out some new footwear splendour, pairing off their looks with some other bits of comfy new season clobber.
WORKING CLASS HEROES
As we return to the dancefloor, the London-based fashion label are kitting us out for the most unlikely clubbing experiences…
For starts, we’ve got a relaxed fit flannel shirt from Scandi skate-brand Polar Skate Co. (£90). Made in Portugal, the shirt offers two colourways, orange and black, and is made from a comfy brushed midweight twill of 100% cotton. Next up is the most retro pair of jeans you ever did see, sending us hurtling back to the Britpop days of Moss, Gallagher and Blur. With big (boy) silhouettes, acid wash hues, and big chunky pockets, these are beyond loose, baggier than Samantha from Sex and The City dropping 10 big ones at Gucci (£110).
We reckon WCH’s accompanying selection of New Balance Made In US 990v5 Shoes (£180) are a perfect choice. Blending leather, mesh and suede in a fusion of stone greys and crisp white, this shoe has traction, ENCAP midsoles for shock absorption, and plenty of mesh lining for added comfort, letting you rave, walk or stomp to your heart’s content. We’d be lying if we said we didn’t love the Made In England 991’s a little more, though, we are Brits at heart. That brown and seafoam green combination is second to none, Pantone better take serious notes (£170).
Seeing as the return of the rave, and the summer season, is on the horizon, we’re also going to need some specs. Thankfully Monokel, a unisex Swedish eyewear label, have an array of sustainable tortoiseshell frames for us to sift through. Whether it’s the warmth of the Nelson, the cool tones of the Barstow, each frame is handcrafted with detail and style in mind. (£89)
Of course, as Brits, we know with the cool comes the cold. Arc’teryx’s Kyanite LT Jacket (£100) is the perfect zip-up for those in-between days. Grey skies in the morning and then blistering heat at noon, this lightweight wonder is ideal for layering in all kinds of activities in a trim fit to ensure heat is no problem. And if hoodless zip-up’s arent your thing, not to worry, they’ve even got a range with hoods on (£115). Bring on Summer!
