Wanted, Dead or Alive

| 5 months ago

This man is wanted by The Chap. His crime? Winning a competition in issue 88 to dress like a Peaky Blinder. A clerical error resulted in the loss of his contact details and we wish to award him his striped tunic shirt, separate collar and collar studs, all from Darcy Clothing, so he can dress […]

The next edition of The Chap comes out on 14th October and features Ed Harcourt on the cover.

While the well-turned ankle of a lady is a pleasure for all eternity, the nude leg of a Chap has more in common with pulled pork than the shimmering delight of a Michelangelo sculpture.
