The style of Peaky Blinders suits

Since it first aired in 2013, the Peaky Blinders suits and series have gathered a lot of fans and their fan base continues to expand.

How does the Peaky Blinders suit look like?

Maybe many of us have seen the Peaky Blinders suit and gasped how amazing it looks but does somebody actually know what the suit is made of and how its tailored? If no, don’t worry! TruClothing will reveal all the secrets of this style of clothing. Even though the action takes place in England, the Peaky Blinders suit is not a typical set of garments for the British gentleman. Many experts believe that the Peaky Blinders suit is not just something to wear, but more of an instrument to divide themselves from all the classes in Britain and form their own community. For our examination we will take the main character Tommy Shelby as an exhibit and a model. Played by Cillian Murphy, Shelby has a very unique and distinguished style and, of course, Peaky Blinders suit.

Usually, Shelby’s Peaky Blinders suit and the garments of the members of the gang are made of tweed in darker colors, where the only touch of color is the tie. Shelby often wears a 3-piece Peaky Blinders suit, usually in the traditional sense – without a coat, but with a waistcoat. But that is not all. The Peaky Blinders suit is a bold combination from heavy, wool fabrics mixed with light, business suits. If we take other historically-based series, the style of the Peaky Blinders suit is very easy to replicate and it is actually very suitable for our modern way of clothing.

What does the Peaky Blinders suit include?

The most important components of the overall vision of the gangster members are the Peaky Blinders suit – that includes the shirt, trousers, coat, the cap, shoes and, of course, accessories. Now we’re going to look at every part individually so everyone will be able to understand the Peaky Blinders suit and style and modify it according to their style.

            Peaky Blinders suit – the shirt

Let’s start with the garment that is essential for every Peaky Blinders suit – the shirt. The most important feature of the shirt of the Peaky Blinders suit is the detachable collar. No matter the style or the color, that was one of the most important things. You can see many styles of shirts that go with the Peaky Blinders suit, like plain white, bold lines, cuffed and etc. The round, detachable collar is an addition to the look by itself providing every man with class and style for their Peaky Blinders suit. Although nowadays is hard to find a shirt for your Peaky Blinders suit with a detachable collar, there are many substitute offers that will definitely help you complete your vintage, classic look.

            Peaky Blinders suit – the trousers, jacket and waistcoat

As we already mentioned, the classic Peaky Blinders suit is a 3-piece suit that is distinguished with its slim lapels and trousers. If you really want to achieve the vintage look of the Peaky Blinders suit, you should search for tweed. That is the key to the look. Most of the Peaky Blinders suit are made from Herringbone or Donegal tweed. The suits, tailored from Herringbone tweed have a distinguished pattern and look to the garments. The Donegal tweed, used for Peaky Blinders suit is very well known in Ireland and it is associated with Country Donegal. The country in Ireland is famous for its beautiful fabrics and unique woolen blends, including the Donegal tweed, that is world renowned.

            Peaky Blinders suit – the coat

The coat should complement and match the style of every suit and that includes Peaky Blinders suit as well. One of the most important features of the coat is its length and fabric, that goes great with a full Peaky Blinders suit. Usually the overcoat is in dark colors and it is single breasted (that means that the coat has only one line of button in front).

            Peaky Blinders suit – the shoes

Every Peaky Blinders suit needs the best matching shoes. In this particular case- boots. Because the trousers of the Peaky Blinders suit are cropped, they require high, ankle boots with a distinguished oxford style finish. They continue the line of the suit and are in dark colors. If you really want to recreate the overall look in the series with the Peaky Blinders suit and the boots, make sure not to shine them, rather than keep them a little bit on the dirty side. Overall you want to achieve a gangster look.

            Peaky Blinders suit – the hat

Many people find the hat a very important detail with the Peaky Blinders suit not only because it complements the overall look, but is essential for the plot of the series. The classic look of Tommy Shelby includes a tweed flat hat, that is usually worn by the working class. Today, we don’t have those associations and the hats are very stylish and preferred by many men.

            Peaky Blinders suit – the accessories

Of course every Peaky Blinders suit needs the proper accessories which will complement the overall look. That might include a hand or a pocket watch, pocket squares and many others. This is actually up to you and you can choose what to add to your Peaky Blinders suit.
