- The Chap issue 82Published on July 14th, 2015
The 82nd edition of The Chap goes back to first principles
We take a look at the life, career and dandyism of Patrick Macnee, in his incarnation as John Steed. We also find a Steed lookalike at the Chap Olympiad.
Vic Darkwood, co-founder of the Chap Magazine, continues his etiquette column with a look at why gentlemen should not run, jog, or exert themselves in any way whatsoever.
Michael “Atters” Attree meets Matt Berry, comedian, actor and musician, to discuss ghosts, prog rock and Soho tailors.
Laszlo Krass, reporting from Berlin, visits Cafe Grosz for hot chocolate and international intrigue. Elsewhere, we examine the Brogue in great detail, along with its fabric counterpart tweed; we meet Richard Massingham, long forgotten eccentric who made educational films on how to use a handkerchief; Patricia Hammond informs us of the female singers of the 1930s whom we should be listening to; Tom Cutler revisits the bachelor pad with tips on how to distinguish them from student bedsits; a new double page spread of our King of Chaps with details of how to nominate yourself a chum for this coveted accolade.
All this, plus usual regulars the Butler, the Lip Weasel and Am I Chap?
