        The Peaky Blinders were a criminal gang in Birmingham, mostly active through the 19th and the early part of the 20th centuries. The gang name ‘Peaky Blinders’ is said to derive from the razorblades that would be stitched in to the peak of its members’ flat caps, to be later used as weapons. Though this has often been quashed by local historians, as flat peak caps were nicknamed ‘peakys’.

        It’s not completely certain whether the term ‘Peaky Blinders’ was used to describe an individual gang or a movement, with various authors debating this throughout the years. Philip Gooderson, author of the popular book The Gangs of Birmingham, states that ‘Peaky Blinders’ was an original gang name, but as time went on it started to become a popular term for gang members in the city.

          The Peaky Blinders gang members were notorious in areas like Small Heath and Bordesley, near Digbeth. Notable members included fearsome leader Billy Kimber – who would go on to be the most powerful gangster in the country – and Harry ‘Baby Face’ Fowles.

          Aside from their striking flat caps, members of the Peaky Blinders gang wore distinctive clothing. They would wear cravats, bell-bottom trousers and brass-lined button jackets in order to be noticed and potentially strike fear when they roamed the streets. They were generally known as dressing in a more sartorial style than the gangs that preceded them. Peaky Blinders’ girlfriends would be of a similarly distinctive style, with plentiful pearls, long fringes down to the eyes and silk handkerchiefs covering their throats.
