Chap Summer 20
The Summer of Lockdown edition of The Chap leads with a profile of Honor Blackman and her roles as Cathy Gale in the Avengers and Pussy Galore in Goldfinger.
Also profiled are art deco artist Tamara de Lempicka, monocled dystopian film-maker Fritz Lang and Godard muse Anna Karina.
The European theme continues with travel features on Fellini’s Rome and Dracula’s Transylvania, Euro Dandies from across the Continent and writers from Spain, Holland, Germany and Hungary sharing the rise of dandyism in each country.
We meet bon vivant, writer and New Statesman columnist Nicholas Lezard, and our antiques experts look at the history of pocket watches, while The Chap Tarot deck is offered as a guide to enlightenment and arcane insight. Regular feature Am I Chap? shares readers’ attempts to maintain sartorial decorum during Lockdown, and we publish the winners of our Lockdown Lip Weasel Competition.
New columnist Sartorial Thug regales us with tales of debauchery, coddiwompling and negronis, while Olly Smith crosses the Irish Sea in search of the perfect pub, Sophia Coningsby shares her cigar-smoking secrets and Mr. Gimpley-Spankworth offers his usual disciplined sartorial advice.
Also featured are European menswear brands, Geoff Stocker’s pocket squares and Get The Look: The Lounge Suit.
Chap Summer 20 is available 18/05/2020
