Sustainability is more than a buzz word for us; it's within the Work Shy DNA. From where we source our fabrics, to who we collaborate with and the methods we use, every step of your jacket's journey is taken with consideration of the planet and the people involved in its production journey.








Our cotton is sourced from the Organic Cotton Co. based in Machynlleth, mid-Wales.


We create small dye batches at the Work Shy studio using Procion MX dyes whilst outsourcing the majority of the dying process to DP Dyers of Huddersfield. 


All of our labels are printed locally at The Printhaus, Cardiff.







At Work Shy we believe we are responsible for our garments' whole life cycle; not just the design, manufacture and sales.


Our end of life policy includes a buyback initiative. When you’re finally finished with your jacket, we’ll take it back and either recycle or repurpose it. Even better, we'll offer a £30 Work Shy voucher in return, regardless of the jacket's condition.


To enquire about the scheme feel free to drop us an email at:

With subject - “Work Shy Buy Back” 





We offer a free repair service because we know our customers work hard and their jackets are put to the test daily.

When accidents do sadly happen, we are here for you. If your Work Shy gets injured, send it back to us and we'll do our best to get it back to full health, and right back onto your shoulders ASAP.
