Yes, an added annoyance. Like you I knew the history of the West Midlands gangs but was not aware of the tv series until recently - I don’t watch much telly...
i agree that it's boring now that if you wear a cap people refer to the TV series.
Not even speaking of the Peaky Blinders look fad, quite ridiculous IMO.

I think it is an interesting series though (the only one i am watching since it's beginning), good plot, excellent actors, movie stars apparitions, historical references, for example last season featured Mosley and the British Union of Fascists.

Of course the mix of a story happening in the 1920s-1930s and a modern soundtrack does not always please everyone...

Excellent Tom Hardy performance, among others. The two main Characters, The Peaky brothers Thomas and Arthur Shelby, are very good too.

Ignoring the fact that they also wear newsboy caps in peaky blinders and not flat caps, i have never actually watched the TV program. i have been called victor meldrew before but thats funny, i don't belieeeeve it!

The dunn and co tweed jacket i have is real nice quality, 3 button, ticket pocket, really thick and it was only a fiver.

It will last forever too. If it is Harris tweed you will not need to worry about wrinkles either.

On the other hand at my age if I am wearing a tweed jacket I often get offered a seat on the Tube. That would not happen if was in different clothes or had an earring or a ponytail. Swings and roundabouts.

Speaking of tweed bucket hats, I have one I’d only wear with a technical Barbour, C.P. Company, Stone Island, etc., jacket.
On me it’d look like cosplay if I wore the tweed bucket hat with an overcoat, mac, tweed, etc. I’m 44 so I don’t think I’m, erm, “distinguished” enough yet.
Some good looks and discussion today though, fellas.

Hats are strictly functional for me - a helmet, that sort of thing.

Chris Difford of Squeeze absolutely nailed the Harrington look. It was a black knock off, like the one I had decades ago in my teens. No jeans. Of course Chris is older now and it would not look so good on him.
