It's almost that time of the year to get spooky but fear not if you've not yet got a costume sorted, we've got you on this one! Off the back of the Peaky Blinders success, Tommy Shelby has become quite the popular figure and a chilling one at that - what better inspiration towards your halloween get up!? Think dark hues, herringbone weaves, classic pinstripe and traditional pocket watches. Really it's all about looking super smart with sophisticated charm yet keeping the air of mystery. Here are some ways you can get the infamous peaky look with some MD favourites...
Get suited in our Max/Royal for that gentlemanly Peaky Blinder's look. We know that the gang are far from gentlemanly however they do aim to paint that picture and the Shelby's do it well. Pop on the signature pocket watch and flat cap and you'll be good to go. We've paired the Max with our Nelson Cap and Bowtie which bring out the mahogany accents in the buttons. You can also don a pair of round rimmed specs for good measure, portraying Tommy in his prime!
When you hear 'Peaky Blinders' you'll instantly think tweed. These Birmingham gangsters wore their tweed with pride, distinguishing themselves among the struggling community of the 1920s era. Our Eton suit is the perfect place to start for this classic and confident look. Filled with dark autumnal hues weaved into a herringbone pattern it makes for ideal Peaky Blinders getup. Pair with a round penny collar shirt and pocket watch and you'll display the authoritative appeal of a Shelby.
On the topic of tweed, the monochromatic Peaky Blinder's style can be achieved successfully with our Victor suit - a grey toned herringbone style with contrasting black velvet accents. Opt for a tie in a similar colour palette or alternatively throw some colour in the mix with our Paisley/Wine Tie as in his later days Tommy was partial to the statement tie.
Last but certainly not least is the pinstripe suit. Typically known as a sign of wealth and a flashy choice, the Peaky Blinders adopted it and combined with various other elements they used it to establish their place in society. A place where they separate themselves from both the poor and the upper class establishment, they were in their own league. Go for our Lewis suit for ultimate peaky vibes.
By order of the Peaky Blinders, we wish you a happy Halloween!
