What to wear

The Scarborough News - - GO -

From over­coats and three-piece suits to peaked caps, the drama has taken the fash­ion show by storm.

For him

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

For her

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
