8 questions we have about Paul Galvin's new Peaky Blinders clothing line for Dunnes

Are… long johns in now?

#SHELBY . My 5th story. Pre-collection look in stores Friday July 15th.

TODAY PAUL GALVIN launched a new Peaky Blinders-inspired clothing collection for Dunnes Stores entitled Shelby.

The description of the line makes no bones about the fact that it’s inspired by the Netflix series either.

Named SHELBY, the story is rooted in the 1920s, a period in menswear style which has grown more relevant today due to the success of the cult Netflix-series Peaky Blinders

It’s available to buy online now and is relatively affordable with the most expensive item coming in at €80.

All that said, we still have some questions.

1. Is actively trying to dress like characters in Peaky Blinders the lad equivalent of saving up to buy Christian Louboutins because you saw them in Sex and the City?

2. Are long johns back in fashion? Why is he wearing shoes with them? Can you just wear them out and about on their own now? Are they the male equivalent to jeggings?

3. What exactly is 1920s-esque about this t-shirt?

Does it not look like every other Dunnes Stores t-shirt ever?

4. Seriously, though. Are men just going to start rocking around the place in white long johns?

Does this not defeat their purpose?


5. Was your Grandad ever this hip?

6. And what would he think of these caps being fierce trendy now?

7. These t-shirts don’t so much say “Peaky Blinders” as they say “I like Blur” but okay.

Don’t want to alienate the boys, we suppose.

8. But if Paul Galvin can rock it…

The era of braces and long johns is upon us, folks. Don’t fight it.

Throw way back #tbt #SHELBY
