Sam Heughan gives off 'Peaky Blinders vibes' as he drives fans wild in tweed cap

Sam Heughan has always been extremely fashionable and his most recent ensemble has left fans a little hot under the collar.

The Outlander actor has been teasing clips of the new episode of his show Men In Kilts with co star Graham McTavish, and when he posted the snap of himself on the Isle of Lewis online, fans clamoured to tell him of his striking resemblance to Peaky Blinders’ frontman Thomas Shelby.

For the episode, ‘Scotland By Land, Air, And Sea’, the 40-year-old posed in a tweed bunnet and cream turtle neck jumper.

In the caption, he wrote: “It’s FRIYAY!! Which means two days until Ep6 @meninkiltsstarz (and a whole lot tweed with chunky sweaters!) “Scotland By Land, Air, And Sea,” airing Sunday, March 28th at 9PM E/P on @STARZ or available starting at 12:01AM EST on the STARZ App.”

Commenting on Sam’s attire, one person wrote: “Tommy Shelby needs his hat back!”

Another added: “Peaky Blinders vibe!”

Peaky Blinders actor Cillian Murphy.

One penned: “Oh lord! I love the tweed and whatever you wear!”

“Never has a man suited a knitted jumper and a flat cap so much,” another wrote.

Another said: “So stylish! Love the turtle neck look!”

While one wrote: “Doesn’t matter what you wear tbh. (heart eye emoji)”

Cillian Murphy’s character in BBC’s Peaky Blinders, is best know for wearing a tweed bunnet and sporting dapper outfits.

In another clip Sam posted for the new episode, Sam and Graham can be seen cycling up a hill then abseiling down a cliff.

The adventure docuseries was inspired by the pair’s desire to create a podcast exploring Scotland, the programme has already had an accompanying book release of Clanlands, which is a Sunday Times Best Seller.

Released as an eight-episode series, shot last year in between filming for Outlander, it’s described as a “love letter” to the country and will see Sam and Graham speak with Scottish historians, musicians, food producers and crafts people, as they discover all the things that make fans of shows like Outlander fall in love with this incredible wee country.

The official trailer shows the pair travelling in a motor home, riding a tandem bike, dancing a Highland fling, tossing a caber, and even leading a pipe band through Edinburgh.

Serving as the ideal escape from Droughtlander, both Sam and Graham, who play Jamie Fraser and Dougal MacKenzie in Outlander, filmed in places like the East Neuk of Fife, Glenelg and Eilean Donan Castle.

Although it’s not yet available in the UK, fans are hoping it isn’t long before we can see the pair explore their roots.
