Whilst there’s plenty of action happening on screen, it isn’t just the gangland drama that’s caught our attention in the wildly popular – and soon to return to our screens – Peaky Blinders. The 1920s gangster saga set in the Midlands is a time machine to some of this winter’s big menswear trends. Cillian Murphy and co have come to be known as bastions of suave style, never a collar left unbuttoned or a linen pocket square left unfolded.
The three-piece suit, dark oversized overcoat and collar-bar shirt are the mainstays of the Peaky Blinders look, but it could all be in vain if your footwear falls by the wayside. The workman boot may come with tough connotations but there’s nothing 9-to-5 about the wear-whenever style. The Peaky Blinders boys parade their workman boots with higher hemlines on their suit trousers and no flesh flashed in between. Take their lead in these oxblood brogue boots from Hugo Boss. With winter’s smart suits they’re a knock out, and dressed down nights are easily acknowledged too with the switch of a suit trouser for your black jeans, lending a mod edge to the look.
Follow the lead of the ever-suave Cillian Murphy and the rest of the Peaky Blinders crew today. Visit Robinsons to shop the Hugo Boss Oxford Brogues before the series returns to our screens and put your best booted foot forward for autumn/winter.
