Am I chapRichard Pye’s accompanying missive read: “I submit this picture of my self relaxing at home over Christmas. Am I a Chap?”

Without getting too spiritual, a picture of your “self” would hopefully not contain an unnecessary (and unattractive) plastic pipe and a cravat that is the wrong size for you. And it you are “relaxing at Christmas”, where is everybody else, and why are you hiding in a poorly-lit basement? I think perhaps you have unwittingly revealed your true self, after all. But you have not revealed, or concealed, a Chap.

The Chap was founded in 1999 and is the longest-serving British magazine dedicated to the gentlemanly way of life, with its own quirky, satirical take on a style that has recently entered the mainstream.
