The Chap Issue 79
Info: Ge ditt omdöme
A journal for the modern gentleman, som de själva uttrycker det. Brittisk tidning för gentlemän och damer som förstår tjusningen hos tweed, en rak pipa och en välskött mustasch. En publikation med en stor dos (torr) humor.

The 79th edition of The Chap resurrects the ghost of Oscar Wilde.

We met the great dandy’s grandson Merlin Holland in the Cafe Royal, where Oscar and Bosie used to meet and where Oscar’s downfall began. Mr. Holland explained his lifelong dedication to the works of his grandfather, and provided some fascinating insights about his life, trial and death, as well as a most curious anecdote about pugilism.

Elsewhere, we examine in great detail the Penny Loafer; discover the best British braces; learn the art of Le Sabrage: how to open a bottle of champagne with a sword, and which particular blades to use; find out about the early Glee Clubs and how decadent they were; and discover why Freddie Flintoff said: “I can drink for free in 64 pubs and get a lift home with the police when I become inebriated.”

Our grooming section explained the differences between Beehive, Persian Jar and Milk Churn shaving brushes, while the Bon Vivant showed us how to make our own cocktail bitters. Tom Cutler told us which peculiar clubs to join, while Nathaniel Adams looked in some detail at Oscar Wilde’s dandyism. The results of our umbrella competition proved that some men need some serious help in the wet-weather canopy department.

All this, plus the usual regulars the Butler, the Lip Weasel and Am I Chap?
