Kent & Curwen has already released its latest collection of clothes, some of which are clear nods to the show, including flat caps, frock coats and a host of dapper, tailored garments.

Called 'The Garrison Tailors', in tribute to the show's Shelby family pub, the former soccer player admits he is a keen admirer of the show. "Our brand has always been about the look. It keeps that authenticity," he said when speaking to the Guardian.

A famous product of London's East End, Becks added that the signature flat cap has always been a favorite of his. "I got that from my grandad. I wore his from a very young age. Brooklyn has taken it on as well."

Kent & Curwen's origins go back to 1926, but it was given a new lease of life when Beckham became a majority owner in 2015.

The show itself recently wrapped up the filming of its fifth series and is tipped to be released around the spring or summer time.

The official synopsis of the upcoming season reads: "Series five of Steven Knight's crime family saga finds the world thrown into turmoil by the financial crash of 1929. Opportunity and misfortune are everywhere.

"When Tommy Shelby MP (Cillian Murphy) is approached by a charismatic politician with a bold vision for Britain, he realises that his response will affect not just his family's future but that of the entire nation."

Speaking to Britain's Birmingham Mail last year, the show's creator said, "We are going into the 30s now. There is so much stuff happening, so why not finish the job? The depression and the rise of fascism form part of the story-line.

"It is setting those things up. In the 30s across Europe and Britain there was the rise of fascism."
