Shirtmaker Thomas Pink has launched a ‘When is a white shirt pink?’ campaign, starring Peaky Blinders actor, Harry Kirton.

The campaign, shot by photographer Pelle Crépin, features the 23-year-old actor who made his name playing Finn Shelby in the BBC historical crime drama. 

The pictures feature the young actor wearing a number of different white shirt styles by Thomas Pink, styled in a variety of ways to express their versatility. Open at the neck, or with ties, they are matched with vintage-style trousers, jeans and chinos.

Dean Gomilsek-Cole, creative director of Thomas Pink, said:

“Harry was the perfect choice for this campaign as he has a quirky British look, and has literally grown up on screen playing the very dapper Finn Shelby. In his personal style, he loves to dress elegantly and to have fun with his clothes, which sits perfectly with Thomas Pink’s spirit.”

Kirton said of the shots: 

‘I love dressing in a relatively smart way like that. The tone of the shoot is great, as it shows that while the shirts might be classic, they can be worn in a way that has some attitude and is not samey. There’s so much more life and fun in this approach, and the shirts lend themselves to it. The white shirts are still quite formal, but there’s something about them that has a bit of pizzazz and a new take on the idea. I think the shoot shows that for an individual like myself, and other people my age, this sort of style can be good. We just need to have the idea planted as a seed for inspiration.’
