With May the first being celebrated for the past 130 years as Labour Day or International Workers Day this year’s seems a particularly poignant one to celebrate ‘the workers’. Inspired by several generations of blue collar workers Universal Works are all about the form following function which is perhaps why they make genuine workwear for manual workers (as well as their contemporary menswear lines) for businesses across the UK, US and Japan. Imagine being a baker, chef, courier or a mechanics and having UW as part of your daily rig out? Pretty amazing eh?
Though if you like to keep your Uni Works gear for best you can always get one of these beautiful hand-loomed, plant dyed indigo denim Labour jackets here instead. Featuring a traditional four button front with a single button-close patch chest pocket this is far too special to be getting any oil, flour or sweat all over it. though to be fair being denim that will probably make it look amazing over time. Also to help celebrate International Workers Day UW are offering free International shipping over this May Day weekend. UP THE WORKERS!
