Hello again, we hope you are all surviving the boredom of this epidemic or at leased enjoying reading this blog to pass the time. Today we are going to show you some of our most popular suits and how many of these suits have been conflicted by the well known series Peaky Blinders.
Lets start by getting into the back ground about Peaky Blinders so the people who have no idea what I am going on about may understand –
Peaky Blinders is a British period crime drama television series created by Steven Knight. Set in Birmingham, England, the series follows the exploits of the Shelby crime family in the direct aftermath of the first world war. The fictional family is loosely based on a real 19th century urban youth gang the same name, who were active in the city from the 1890s to the early twentieth century. The craze of the series has not only effected fashion but it even has a bar based on the series in Liverpool found in the heart of the baltic triangle…The fashion in the series has become a height in fashion since the series started in 2013, becoming more and more popular as the series grew. A simple way of explaining the fashion is Tommy Shelby (the main character), his brothers and his crew all wear a uniform based on a three piece suit, oxford laced boots, a newsboy flat cap, a detachable collar shirt, and a heavy overcoat. Many people have modernised this look into society as a tweed suit plus a flat cap. Here is a photoshoot we did and as you will see it is very much influenced by the series:
