Crammed to the gunwales with a broad variety of content, our main interview is with dandy actor and fashion designer John Malkovich. We also meet other remarkable men, including Nicholas Parsons, Craig Brown and a man who crossed the Alps on a Space Hopper.
Sartorial contents include a fashion photo shoot at Cordings of Piccadilly, Mahoney Watches, Amide Hadelin, Loake Shoes, Grey Fox Column and Chris Sullivan on Sartorial Disphosophobia, the inability to discard a single vintage item in one’s wardrobe, even when it no longer fits or never did in the first place. Chris also profiles eccentric dandy, poet, publisher and suicide Harry Sturges Crosby.
Our dandizette is Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin and out style tribe is the Russian Stilyagi, who defied Stalin’s Soviet regime by wearing bobby sox and soot suits. Olly Smith advises on what booze to stock up on for the winter months and we pay a visit to Belgravia institution Boisdale. Mr. B the Gentleman Rhymer recounts his tour of Europe with Sparks and Robert Lloyd Parry recreates the ghost stories of M R James.
We give a sartorial appraisal of lost classic movie Rogue Male with Peter O’Toole, and travel across Florida in a Ford Mustang and across France in an MGB GT.

All this plus regular features on collecting antiques, book reviews, Am I Chap? and our crossword. Purchase the print edition from here, or download the digital edition from here

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.
