If you have Netflix or Hulu, you will agree with me, that TV shows are influencing men fashion. While looking at the pictures of street style during the recent Men fashion shows, it becomes more than clear that style and fashion are being heavily influenced by TV shows such as BBC’s Peaky Blinders or HBO’s Boardwalk Empire.
The costume design of both shows have received various awards, and also brought back the three-piece suit and the collar pinned shirts to the streets.
Furthermore, the influence of the roaring twenties is visible in the haircut styles, where Man shave their scalps short while leaving a mop of long hair on the top. This hairstyle was very popular with soldiers during the First World War, and they adopted it after the war in their civilian life.
But like every fashion trend, this one also adapts itself to our time, not just copying the original style. That is why the number 1 accessory for you to have that cool gentleman gangster look are rings. Not a small, discreet ring, such as a wedding ring; but a lot of rings and the bigger, the better, with different forms and shapes. (See the Gallery Photos)
Therefore, what you will need to update your look is a three-piece suit with the perfect fit (so get ready to save and invest), an undercut haircut like in the 30’s and a lot of rings. You can be sure that rings are the new tattoos.
