It has come to our attention that many good folk will be confined to barracks during the coronavirus epidemic, and to while away the long hours in one’s homestead we are offering self-isolating chaps a completely free digital edition of The Chap. The risks even of popping out to one’s local newsagent are such that one is ill advised to make anything except the most essential purchases, such as kid leather gloves, tweed face masks etc – see A Chap’s Guide to Coronavirus for further advice. Our free digital edition is the 100th special anniversary issue, featuring Terry-Thomas, Leslie Phillips, Lauren Bacall, Humphrey Bogart, Sebastian Horsley, Grey Fox Column, The History of The Chap, Future Nostalgia, the Straw Boater, Saddle Shoes, Travel to Paris, The History of Savile Row, Kaspars at the Savoy, Soul Boy Soccer, JP Donleavy, Ben Schott, Olly Smith’s 100 Best Things About Drinking and How to Dress for the Apocalypse. To get your free digital edition, simply visit pocketmags.com
The Chap’s subscription service will continue to function as normal during the pandemic and current subscribers will receive all future editions in the usual manner. Should you wish to take advantage of our current offer to new subscribers, you will receive a completely free copy of our 300-page hardback book Best of The Chap, simply by entering code BOTC20 on our Subscriptions Page.
