First of the Autumn Wine...

We're beginning to make that seasonal transition from summer to autumn. Along with a seasonal change comes a change in colour. Nature, clothing, food, and drink all adapt aesthetically according to the season. Think of an ombre effect; yellows through to orange, down to reds, burgundy, and brown. Whilst the weather becomes colder, Autumn into Winter is jam-packed with holidays, traditions, and festivities that we can all look forward to celebrating in style. There is no better way of welcoming in the colder air than with a good drink. Whether alcoholic or not, we turn to a much warmer tipple, which we can cosy up with by a fire as the nights draw in earlier, or to party into the night with Halloween, bonfire, and Christmas festivities.

British Heritage, Peaky Blinder Style

The Roaring Twenties was a time when many people defied prohibition, indulged in new styles of dancing and dressing, and rejected many traditional moral standards. It was a period when society was returning to normal after the First World War and the general mood was positive. This decade was a time when fashion took a turn from the conservative, old styles into a new era of fashion.

100 years on and many of the most popular men’s dress styles today are still modeled from the fashion of that decade. Heavy wool dark coats, vintage tweed suits, newsboy flat caps, tweed waistcoats, and penny collar shirts are some of the timeless garments that are becoming super trendy in the UK thanks to the Peaky Blinders drama. It’s the British drama series based on a gangster family after the First World war lead by Tommy Shelby (Cillian Murphy) as they try to run the city with their corrupt activity. The programme hasn’t only taken over our TV screens though, it’s also influenced our fashion sense and inspired many themed bars and restaurants.
