This stylish new menswear line comes by order of the Peaky Blinders.
As someone who firmly believes that menswear peaked (no pun intended) in the 20s, David Beckham's collaboration with the popular BBC show Peaky Blinders is one I can well and truly get behind. The football star has launched the sexy new collection with Kent & Curwen, the London fashion brand he co-owns, in a move for which we are eternally grateful.
Channelling the charm and sophistication of the award-winning series, the new line was unveiled at London Fashion Week. The Autumn/Winter collection includes staple looks from the show that give off pre-war vibes without looking like they're straight from the costume department.
The line includes three-piece tweed suits, peg leg trousers, waist coats and woollen overcoats. Some of the styles also feature canvas patches displaying the brand's rose motif along with the writing, "Garrison Tailors by Order of the Peaky Blinders".

The pièce de résistance of the capsule, though, is of course the iconic flat cap. Whilst used in the show as the uniform for the Peaky Blinders, Beckham has said that the cap means more than just his love of the show. The footballer claims in an interview that he inherited a similar cap from his father and has since passed one on to his son, Brooklyn.
When and where to shop the collaboration
The suave new line is set to drop in stores this September, just in time for the airing of the next season of Peaky Blinders. You'll be able to shop it from the Kent & Curwen website as well as other usual stockists like THE ICONIC and Farfetch.
Peaky Blinders follows war hero Thomas Shelby and his family of gangsters in the aftermath of World War I. Beckham has been quite vocal about being a fan of the show and, as one of the most well-dressed men alive, it's no surprise to see that love extends to the show's fashion department.
The menswear line isn't the only venture away from sport for the former footballer. Beckham also released a men's grooming line called House 99 early last year.
