Why we're crushing: We love the shows plot line but being lovers of style as well we couldn't help but notice these bad boys dapper style. These boys are fitted from their heads to their toes wearing rounded collars, tweed suits, slick boots, directional haircuts and their trademark- blinder caps. Plus, every good girl loves a bad a boy, especially ones with british accents.
Fun Fact: The Peaky Blinders was a real gang who hid razors under the caps, that why they're called The Peaky Blinders!
Peaky Blinders: Clothes on Film Q&A with Costume Designer Stephanie Collie
Costume designer (Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, The Look of Love) "was on board to recreate the era in, her own words, “a heightened way”. Peaky Blinders is not intended for school history lessons, it’s a ‘Hollywoodised’ vision of 1919 with a TV budget. The costumes you see are accurate, but more significantly they’re relatable to a contemporary audience."

For some of the other cast, the suits were hired from a mixture of Angels and Cosprop – we found great stuff. We tailored in a lot of the trousers to give them a narrower look. We were lucky enough to find some of those big overcoats, but we had to have some of them made; Paul’s had to be made. The shirts were all hired. As per usual, we had very little money so had to decide where to spend it. Obviously the suits for Cillian were very important so the money went there.
