We had the pleasure of working with Philadelphia photographer Justin James Muir to bring this twenties-inspired photoshoot to life. While in quarantine, one of our favorite shows to binge has been BBC’s Peaky Blinders. For those unfamiliar with the hit TV show, the series follows the 1920s Birmingham gang The Peaky Blinders and their ambitious boss Tommy Shelby. Aside from great cinematography and compelling storyline, what captivates us about the series is the twenties-inspired tailoring worn by the show’s titular cohort. The Shelby family sports tweed three piece suits in assorted blues, grey, and browns throughout the series, more often than not paired with shirts with a rounded contrast collar and leather footwear. With the help of our friends over at Proper Cloth, we designed our looks, anchored by flannel suits in Navy and mid-grey and contrast-collared shirts for the shoot. To our satisfaction, we were able to accessorize the look with a pair of bronze and silver pocket watches collected in Notting Hill’s Portobello Road Market in London last year.
A favorite restaurant of ours for its delicious chops and sophisticated Old Hollywood interior, Butcher & Singer served as the perfect backdrop for the shoot.
