|Inspired by the Peaky Blinders|
What’s a Peaky Blinder without his flat cap? The iconic headgear might actually be viewed as the lead character in the show. Despite their acquired wealth, the Blinders hold on to wearing their tweed working class flat caps. And not only to protect those awesome undercuts from the typical English weather, but also because it’s the perfect weapon thanks to the razor blade hidden in the peak. The Shelby's "Peaky Blinders" inspired newsboy style has been popular for the last century and can add a hint of heritage to an otherwise modern outfit. The Shelby consists of tweed wool, features an 8 panel design, double snap brim, grosgrain sweatband, rib knit rear band and a quiltedpolyester lining to ensure a comfortable wear.
Of course our Peaky Blinders inspired newsboy caps also have razors, for that authentic 1920’s Birmingham look. Needless to say that these are purely decorative and by no means meant to be used for violence. But they do make the caps look extra cool! This flat cap is made of mixed brown wool and just oozes 1920’s vintage. The Shelby 8 panel newsboy cap gets it's inspiration from Thomas "Tommy" Shelby's iconic look as featured in Peaky Blinders. The Shelby gives classic style for the 21st century, this gatsby cap is also inspired by the 1920's stylings of Jay Gatsby from The Great Gatsby. The newsboy flat hat is sometimes referred to as "the poor boy cap", as it was once common clothing for the lower class during The Great Depression of 1929-1939. Thanks to iconic famous wearers, the newsboy is now known for its high fashion sense, and is widely popular today. Wear it to inject instant style to every outfit.
