The Chap’s latest swashbuckling edition has hit the nation’s magazine racks.
New Doctor of Dandyism Miss Sunday Swift assesses the unique dandyism of Emma Peel, in a new regular look at the dandizette in all her historical glory. Michael “Atters” Attree meets Tom Six, controversial Dutch filmmaker and decadent fellow, whose prize possession is Sebastian Horsley’s ashtray. We look at the crucial roles played by socks, Fair Isle sweaters and gentlemen’s pockets, the latter being given a thorough delving-into by Vic Darkwood. We pay a visit to Trouser Town, where moleskin strides are back in production after several decades, thanks to HebTroCo. Our King of Chaps cuts a Steed-esque dash in brown bowler and tweeds, while Laszlo Krass takes us on a walking tour of Chappist Berlin. Little-known black jazz bandleader James Reese Europe gets the recognition he deserves, while Oliver Reed’s version of the cricket coin toss is recounted in dipsomaniac detail.
All this plus regular features from the Butler, Steve Pittard, Film reviews, Am I Chap? and the Lip Weasel.
