In October this year, The Chap will be launching a brand-new, vastly improved online emporium of gentlemanly requisites. Until then, we are releasing all our current stock items at a fraction of their original prices, in order to make space for new stock from new suppliers. These items are only available in limited quantities and will be withdrawn from sale in October 2016.
Back Issues Sale Bundle
A mixed bundle of Chaps covering the entire spectrum of its 17-year existence, with examples from the earliest days of the A5 editions, through the various changes in size and format – including a rare A4 Steampunk edition. This is the perfect introduction to the journal for the modern gentleman that continues to flourish and expand.
How To Be Chap
Now available directly from The Chap Shop, How To Be Chap (2016) is a large-format hardback tome chronicling the entire history of The Chap, from its humble beginnings as a discreet gentlemen’s pamphlet, through all its public protests and demonstrations against vulgarity, to the crowning glory of the Chap Olympiad. Packed with full-colour photographs of all the key members of the Chap fraternity, as well as all the pro to-Chaps who have been interviewed, the book offers the most detailed insight into this curious social phenomenon ever available in print. Click on the cover to see a selection of inside pages.
In this longplayer from our artist of the decade (but not this decade), Mr. B The Gentleman Rhymer offers a compilation of his first two albums, Flattery Not Included and I Say!, including such unforgettable ditties as Hail The Chap, The Crack Song, Lord Byron and Shoot The Cuff. This compact disk is the perfect introduction to the oeuvre of an artiste who encapsulates the ideals and tenets of The Chap through his own peculiar combination of hip-hop, music-hall and ragtime.
Songs of the Great War
This commemorative long player from Patricia Hammond features a collection of songs from all sides of the First World War, including If I Were the Only Girl in the World, Pack Up Your Troubles
and It’s a Long Way to Tipperrary
, as well as lesser-known ditties such as Roses of Picardy
and Long Long Trail
. Ms Hammond brings them all to life with her lush, silky tones, with musical arrangements ranging from Palm-court ensemble to Klezmer clarinet and banjo.
Chap Olympiad Pocket Square
To commemorate the 12th Chap Olympiad on 16th July 2016, The Chap produced an exclusive new pocket square. Printed on high-quality silk twill with hand-stitched edges and dimensions of 15-and-a-half inches squared, this bold, assertive yet whimsical and poignant decoration for a chap’s breast pocket is the most handsome item one could wear before, during and after the Chap Olympiad, or indeed any other major international sporting event.
Red Star Pocket Square
The Chap has produced several pocket square designs, each more sophisticated and complex than the previous. This one, printed on red shantung silk and hand-stitched to a dimension of 15-and-a-half inches squared, features the Chap’s ubiquitous logo in a gold star. To see how the square looks before insertion, click on the image.
Black Star Pocket Square
The black version of the Chap’s December design of our pockets squares. The slightly more subtle arrangement of colour means that this one one is more suitable for evening wear, depending on which colour socks one is wearing. Click on the image to see the square in its full unfolded splendour. Both squares have dimensions of fifteen-and-a-half inches around the hand-stitched border.
The original neutral version of a moustache wax whose creation was supervised by Michael “Atters” Attree according to his own personal requirements. The wax is scented with cedar moss and vanilla, making it pleasant both for the wearer to inhale and for his guests to enjoy as he and his magnificent moustache waft before them.
Blue Funk has been through many changes since its first appearance as a hand rolling tobacco. What’s on offer here, at a huge reduction on the original price, is Blue Funk hand rolling tobacco, a blend of virginias that is both strong and flavoursome, and ideally suited to smoking while strolling about the streets of Mayfair, Madrid or Montevideo.
