Most outerwear is too heavy to be worn most of the year – and you end up needing two or three pieces to combat the British seasonal calendar. So, The Workers Club began by producing an adaptable shell jacket that incorporated different layers that could be easily zipped into the jacket – making it a whole lot more versatile. The brand’s simple jacket is made from a water-repellent cotton canvas with taped seams, a removable hood and a range of functional details like the perfectly placed chest and hand pockets. But, most importantly, into this water-repellent shell, you can zip in a gilet or the brand’s dependable parka liner.
‘The Works’, as it is aptly named by the brand, is the name of The Workers Club’ collection of outwear that includes all of its signature jackets, mid-layers and liners. The beauty of the collection is that all of its pieces can be worn individually or in combination with each other. Get a closer look at the essential outwear, mid-layers and liners from The Workers Club below.
Navy English Wool Gilet
By removing weight and puffiness and concentrating on the cut, the flattering fit of this lightweight gilet means it can be worn like a waistcoat, without adding unnecessary bulk to your upper body. In a mixed navy wool, this regular-fitting gilet is crafted from English wool that has been mill-washed for an exceptionally soft feel. Which also means that despite its relatively light and soft feel, it is incredibly warm. It can be worn zipped into the matching The Workers Club water-repellent jacket or layered underneath the brand’s signature bomber jacket.
Khaki Reversible Parka Liner
The Workers Club’ all-new Parka Liner Jacket is a great mid-weight layering piece. Constructed from super-lightweight nylon micro ripstop, the unique reversible design can be worn to show either khaki or the fluffy Sherpa side – and both have useful pockets at the front to stow essentials. Wear yours alone or layering under the coordinating water-repellent Parka for extra protection.
Abstract Camo Shell Jacket
Featuring a totally unique camo printed shell, The Workers Club Abstract Camo jacket takes inspiration from the British countryside and as a result, the fabric is woven and printed in Scotland by a unique mill that specialises in waxed coated fabrics. The jacket’s greatest strength, beyond its easy shell layering capabilities, is the fact that the abstract camo design can either blend into the countryside or stand out in the city, depending on where it is being worn. Plus, with its large hand-warmer pockets, dual entry envelope pockets, reinforced elbow patches, adjustable cuffs, drawstring waist adjusters, dipped reverse hem and removable hood, it comes with a whole host of details that make it the ideal outer layer during interchangeable weather. Plus, its unique workwear-utilitarian aesthetic makes it a natural fit with denim and a classic lace-up boot.
