Am I Chap?

Oddjob

“Having married several years ago, and thus having formal daywear in my wardrobe, I have been wearing morning dress to pay my respects to the fallen on Remembrance Day for some time now. I think it appropriate. The morning dress is standard, but in fitting with Armistice, it is rigged with my corps tie, service … Keep Reading

Am I Chap?

B&B

These gentlemen have made a passable stab at Chappishness. But what is more impressive is their invisible waistcoats and ties, allowing the curtains of a rather shabby B&B establishment to show through their bodies. Well done! … Keep Reading

Am I Chap?

Philip Jackson

“Came across this chap perching at the local rugger club,” writes Philip Jackson. “I couldn’t help but notice the attention to detail, with the co-ordination of the toe warmers and the handkerchief; I do believe the only improvement that would enhance his chappishness would be some well groomed facial hair.” We do indeed believe some … Keep Reading

Am I Chap?

Richie Paradise

“This photograph was taken of me during a lull between pheasant drives,” writes Huw Mitchell. “Where is your manservant proffering the freshly loaded partner to your shotgun?” I hear you ask.” More to the point, where is your tailor? Did you shoot him too? If so, he fully deserved it. … Keep Reading

Ken Follet
Am I Chap?

Ken Follet

Good heavens. The eye, naturally repulsed by every item of this man’s clothing, is drawn away, to anything else in the room…and alights on some sort of rodent enclosure, a print of one of the lesser St. Ives School artists, and a Ken Follett novel. Life in this household is just one endless round of … Keep Reading

Am I Chap?

Tree

You know when 99 per cent of you screams “NO!”, yet that one per cent of you, which abandons all convention, rules, regulation and common sense, silently and subtly whispers “Yes.” That whisper triumphed in the case of this, er, fellow/lady/woodland creature disguised as a human. … Keep Reading
