What to wear
From overcoats and three-piece suits to peaked caps, the drama has taken the fashion show by storm.
Peaky Blinders are known for their sharp suits, crisp shirts and, of course, their trademark caps. Steven Knight launched his own clothing company called Garrison Tailors in 2016 to enable people to emulatethelookofthewhathe calls “the Peaky boys.”. Tweed suit, crisp white shirt, tie, waist coast, leather boots, and the eight-panel caps.
A wool overcoat and classic laceup work boots are a must for any gangster look.
A pocket watch is the ultimate accessory. Umbrella optional. Stockists include: Selfridges, Ted Baker and All Saints.
You can also rummage vintage clothes shops, high street stores and car boots
When it comes to the leading ladies in Peaky Blinders, Aunt Polly, May Carleton and Ada Shelby certainly know how to dress the part. Fashion for women is all about getting loose. Drop waist, asash or belt around the low waist or hip and a skirt that hangs anywhere from ankle on up to the knee but never above. Cloche hats, seamed stockings, a purse, gloves and maybe jewellery. Shoes T-straps, single or double strap Mary Janes, and walking Oxfords. Elegant and decadent with beaded flapper dresses or long evening gowns. Accessories include the head band, stoles, boas, braclets and necklaces
The fur coat
Real fur was probably most desirable in Aunt Polly’s day. That’s not the case now and there are lots of great vintage style faux fur coats on the market. Plenty of vintage clothes shops or high street options
