After long anticipation, the Peaky Blinders are back on our TV screens. Among the fist fighting, crime- committing, and general outrageous lad-ish behaviour, one thing’s for certain, the Shelby boys sure know how to get suited and booted.
Unlike many period dramas, it’s the menswear, not the womenswear that is sparking our imagination and grabbing all of our attention.
From tweed baker boy caps, tailored three piece suits, smart buttoned-up shirts and THAT iconic Peaky hair cut, the Shelby boys’ style has taken the modern high street by storm.
With season three off to a blinding start, now’s the perfect time to dapper up your wardrobe and get gangster-groomed chaps.
Shop these key ‘Peaky’ pieces now.
No look is complete without a baker boy hat
Hats off! Bringing the Baker Boy hat back- if you want to join the gang, it’s a must
Make sure you button it up
Smarten up your act boys, a classic shirt is the easiest way to adopt the Peaky look. Whether you opt for a round or a bar collar, you must wear it buttoned up to the top.
Get suited and booted like those Peaky boys
Thomas Shelby is rarely seen without his three-piece suit, swoon. Choose woollen fabrics in grey or pinstripes for the classic gangster look. If you’re brave enough, wear your trousers cropped at the ankle.
The key to the Peaky look is tailoring
This needn’t match your suit, the Peaky Blinders have got the art of mixing up their tailoring down to a tee. Try a grey check or tweed, even a double breasted for extra style points.
Layer up with an overcoat
Make it long, falling just at the ankle- ideal for keeping your street cred in check come winter.
Finish off your look with a statement tie
Not just for formal occasions, a statement tie will finish off your look.
