The Peaky Blinders Suits:
The suits of Tommy and Arthur Shelby are the most amazing outfit styles that are worth replicating in our day-to-day pursuits. The vintage tweed suits checked suits and the three-piece suits with slim lapels, and narrow cut shoulders which are elegantly paired with the slim fit trousers are the best style moments to be recreated. If you want to see the kind of sophisticated drape of suits you view in the show, you must avoid too light-weighted fabric. The suits that you can see in the show are designed and tailored by Keith Watson who is very famous for his traditional cuts. A 3 piece tweed suit could be too much for you, but maybe a tweed jacket (so you don't need tweed trousers) is the best addition to many of your daily outfits. Think about it.
