For years, we have been loving the BBC hit tv show, The Peaky Blinders. Everyone sits eager awaiting the next season to watch the action packed scenes of gangsters, rivalry and revenge. The lead character, Tommy Shelby, is known for his confident, suave persona, but also for his iconic dress sense. The costumes for the moody but dapper mobsters of 1920s Birmingham have been hailed by critics as the fifth series of the BBC drama is the latest to hit our screens.
The online resale site has also seen searches for overcoats double, a 135% increase in searches for three-piece suits and a 55% rise in people searching for flapper dresses. We are loving the styling for the show and believe there should be a resurgence in 1920’s fashion.
One of the features of Mr Shelby’s attire we want to bring back, is the dapper Pocket Watch that sits within his waistcoat. In modern fashion, there is so much lacking in reference to the classic gentleman look. There is nothing better than a clean cut, three piece suit paired with some smart shoes and a beautifully placed pocket square. The perfect finish to the look however, is truly found within that of the accessories.
Finding the right Pocket Watch in this fashion market is practically impossible, however with the help of pocketwatch.co.uk we can find hundreds of classic and contemporary designs to suit each style of person.
