Summer Fabreeze

The Dilemma faced by a chap when deciding what to wear during the longish hottish British summer, or when sauntering through far-flung lands, can be a sticky one. When the season finally prevents the donning of 18oz tweed three-pieces, where does one turn to find sartorial solace on sunnier days? Many modern lightweights lack the … Keep Reading

Fashion on the Ration

Think of clothing in World War II and chances are you’ll imagine either RAF officers on bombing raids or victory-rolled Land Girls in breeches and beetroot lipstick. You probably won’t think of men’s fashion. There’s a good reason for that. A new exhibition at the Imperial War Museum, Fashion on the Ration, 1940s Street Style, … Keep Reading

All Steamed Up

We’ve learned all about their peculiar belief system on pages 22-25, Issue 43, but now it is time to find out what the steampunk dress code consists of. We invited Andy Heintz, Andrew O’Neill and the Intrepid Young Woman to inspect the contents of a treasure trove of singular scientific contraptions The Intrepid Young Woman … Keep Reading

Britches & Hoes

With all this talk of “Austerity Britain” and the economic situation making a trip to Tesco seem as expensive and unappealing as a visit to Dubai, it is only natural that we should return to the notion of “growing our own”. Allotments, once the preserve of gentle old men with turnips dropping out of their … Keep Reading

Paul Anderson Interview

Gustav Temple:  Your moustache is the only moustache in the entire cast of Peaky Blinders. We’re very interested in moustache growing at the Chap. Presumably you have to grow a new moustache for each round of filming. Do you grow it from scratch, or do you grow a full beard then shave off everything except … Keep Reading

Am I Chap?

“These photos were taken at the Chap Olympiad,” writes Claire Banton. “I’d travelled down from Teesside to take my father Ian Banton along. On the walk from Goodge Street station we were approached by a local down-and-out, who asked my Father the location of his penthouse – so can we assume (despite the fact he … Keep Reading

“Wot-ho, Wot!” wrote Jon West. “See attached mimeograph of self, please advise if Chappist.” The problem here is not so much a sartorial one but one of photography. Could this would-be gentleman not have stepped away from the plastic children’s toys and the smelly dog cushion? Then again, would it have made any difference? … Keep Reading

“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

“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

Major Douglas Vincent Yant

Is this a game of Cluedo that has gone disastrously wrong, and resulted in Major Douglas Vincent Yant (Ret’ard) being shot point blank in the drawing room? Or are we simply getting our hopes up? … Keep Reading

Am I Chap?

Richie Paradise

Richard “Richie” Paradise was so ashamed of his wedding attire that he couldn’t even face the camera. Quite right too. This is the sort of suit one might get divorced in – if one wanted to impress upon the beak how years of marriage had severely impaired one’s sartorial judgment. … Keep Reading
