Peaky Pics Winner
Congratulations to Andrew Whitaker who won the ‘Peaky Pics’ competition!
You may remember our blog post about how to wear a suit like a Peaky Blinder. The hit BBC series has inspired people up and down the country to suit up in the most classic and stylish of ways. Club collars, three-piece tweeds and, you guessed it, flat caps.
Our blog inspired some of our followers on social media to post pictures of themselves dressing a bit peakily. Which inspired us to launch a competition. Post a picture of yourself on social media and win a bespoke flat cap, made from a beautiful tweed cloth of your choice.
We had some fantastic entries, but this one from Andrew Whitaker really stood out. All the elements were there (including the foreboding grey sky in the background).
Congratulations to Andrew! We’ll bring you some shots once the cap has been finished. In the meantime, if you’d like to order a flat cap with us, we’re launching a limited run using our selection of tweeds…watch this space for more news!

The term ‘pinstripe’ refers to the very thin, parallel lines that run through a cloth, contrasting with the main colour. Taken at face value, it would seem to be a fairly bland description of a simple fabric pattern. But the history of the pinstripe suit is anything from bland and, indeed, the suit itself has a host of connotations attached to it.Style Tips & Advice Style History
