The Chap is proud to present its first two items of clothing, both exclusively produced for us by reputable makers of gentlemanly raiment, Northampton-Based shoemaker Jeffery-West and Edinburgh-based tweed merchants Walker Slater. We have commenced our line of Chap clothing with what we consider to be the very foundations of a good wardrobe â€“ a tweed jacket and a pair of brown brogues.
The Chap Brogue
The Chap Brogue is a Goodyear-welted brogue of tan coloured calf leather, built on a classic shaped last with a few added anarcho-dandyist flourishes, such as red stitching on the welts, sytlish brogueing on the heel and the Chap logo burnished on to the leather sole and also on the instep. It represents, we feel, everything that a gentleman’s shoe should stand for, and with all the construction qualities one would expect from a Northampton-based shoemaker. The Chap Brogue comes with red laces, and a spare set of brown laces for weekdays.
The Chap Tweed Jacket
In association with master tweed maker Walker Slater, The Chap came up with what we felt was the perfect tweed jacket. The original jacket, now sold out, was in a bottle-green herringbone Harris Tweed, with single vent at the back, straight pockets plus ticket pocket, burgundy silk lining and narrow lapels. A brown version, based on a Hacking Jacket, will be available for purchase by Christmas 2016.
