Am I Chap?

Major Blunder

Major Blunder probably thinks it is a matter of course that he is declared a Chap. And in one sense he is right – there is nothing intrinsically wrong about his clothing and his facial hair. It’s just that he looks like the sort of fellow who, one day, might turn a sleepy village in … Keep Reading

Chap Tile Pocket Square

For the third in our new series of pocket squares, designer Caroline Lindop has harked back to earlier Chap pocket squares by using a grid formation, but maintaining a strong art deco flavour by adding a geometric border and using the sorts of colours used on Pullman carriages in the 1930s. This, the boldest of … Keep Reading

Moore brought life into the Bond role, after a string of arguably uninspired performances in the later Sean Connery outings, who was tiring of the role he made famous, and Australian newbie George Lazenby. He also brought, for the first time, an individualistic sense of style that Moore himself had cultivated over his decades-long career. Moore was noted for…

Eartha Kitt

in Features by
Eartha Kitt

Sunday Swift: Whether you know her from her singing songs like Santa Baby and Monotonous, or for her various roles in television, film and theatre, the name Eartha Kitt is associated with very specific images – and those images are usually tinged delightfully with camp. She imbued overt and even hyperbolic sexuality, with a slight but athletic figure, usually draped in an evening gown with a slit up to the top of her thigh, smouldering at the camera through irresistibly sultry eyes. Her performances were usually accompanied with cat-like growls and purring rolled r’s, making her the perfect actress to play…
