The Chap Tie
After years of waiting, with some keen fellows even drawing chap logos on to their existing ties while they wait, The Chap Tie is finally ready. Our designer combined elements of Art Deco, the new Chap logo and one of our pocket square designs to come up with what we feel is the perfect combination of colour, subtlety and discreet anarcho-dandyism to adorn the neck of a gentleman. The Chap Tie is printed on pure silk and measures 58 x 3 3/4 inches at its widest point.
The Chap Cufflinks
The new design Chap Cufflink features Caroline Lindop’s stylish rendering of our erstwhile Chap logo into a sleek new graphic with a slightly sinister edge. The cufflinks are of the T-bar variety and come in a smart black presentation box. They would make a valuable addition to any gentleman’s collection of cuff-fastenings, whether to display his allegiance to Chappism or otherwise.
The Chap Cravat
Some chaps are simply far too louche to half-garotte themselves with a necktie, and prefer the rather more casual, if a little caddish, neck adornment of a cravat. In fact there is probably no sight more rakish than a well-dressed fellow cruising by in an open-top Austin Healey, flat cap pulled firmly over his eyes, cigarette holder trailing smoke, and a silk cravat such as this one bristling from between the buttons of his shirt. The Chap Cravat is made in England of 100 % pure silk, and measures 45 x 6 3/4 inches.
The Chap Lapel Badge
Our new version of the Chap logo has been turned into a lapel badge as well as a set of cufflinks. The badge is the ideal adornment for the lapel of a Chap, Chapette or any other human who wishes for the lapel of their jacket, coat or blazer to be enlivened by a circle of black, silver and red metal with hat, pipe and monocle all present and correct. The lapel badge measures 18mm x 3mm and comes in a smart black presentation box.
Scatterchap Pocket Square
The first of our new Chap pocket square designs features our new Chap logo in navy blue dancing around a burgundy background. It is printed on high quality pure silk and measures 40cm squared. The design was created by Caroline Lindop, who also designed our updated logo. Click on the image to see the full pattern.
Deco Chap Pocket Square
The second design from Caroline Lindop blends our new Chap logo into an Art deco border, in muted 1920s tones, creating the ideal pocket square for a brown or grey tweed jacket, or in warmer weather a cream linen jacket. Deco Chap is printed on high quality pure silk and measures 40cm x 40cm. Click on the image to see the full pattern.
Cigarette Pocket Square
Another original 1920s fabric print, from a period when cigarette smoking was practically fetishised. The smouldering gaspers form a nice geometric, nearly monochromatic design that we feel would be ideally suited to evening wear. It is printed on high quality pure silk and measures 40cm x 40cm. Click on the image to see the full pattern.
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 the new designs, would work perfectly with a black or dark grey suit. Click on the image to see the full design.
Floral Pocket Square
An original fabric pattern from the 1930s, this elegant design has all the classic elements of the period, including bold contrasting colours and an Oriental influence. The pattern is a beauty on its own, and even better when sunk nonchalantly into the breast pocket of one’s jacket. It is printed on pure silk, machine hemmed and measures 40cm by 40cm.

Chap Christmas Card
A saucy A5 Christmas card from the design team who brought you The Chap Magazine, featuring the one and only Terry-Thomas and chums. The card is blank on the inside for your fountain pen to personalise the festive message, and the card comes with a sealable envelope. “I say, what an absolute shower!”
