Highest Recorded Reading of The Chap

in News by

EverestA team of scientists working on Mount Everest has broken the world record for the highest altitude reading of The Chap. Dr. Martin, Dr. Hennis, Dr. Smedley, Dr. Vercueil, Dr. Couppis, Mr. Horscroft and Captain Carroll sent us this photograph of a reading of The Chap at South Base Camp in Nepal, at an altitude of 17,598 feet.

The team are engaged in “a scientific endeavour of the utmost importance”. They claim, however, to value their leisure time and made the most of their spectacular high altitude by casually setting a world record for the highest reading of The Chap magazine ever recorded on Earth.

The previous record was held by a small team of Chaps who in 2007 ascended a “sculpture” by Rachel Whiteread in Tate Modern, whose height was estimated at 47 feet, in the short time the gentlemen had to take measurements before being kicked out by security guards.


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.
