Jackie Onassis graced the cover of the August-September 2016 edition, and The Chap’s Doctor of Dandyism took a long look at her status as a style icon and her ultimate entrapment in this role. The results of a peaky blinders competition, along with a selection of stylish attendees at 2016′s Chap Olympiad are featured. Wine expert and gadabout Olly Smith was interviewed about drinking wine, keeping bees and his obsession with James Bond. Waxed coats by English Utopia, makers of fine country clothing, were put through their paces, and the complexity of the khaki trouser was also considered. Tom Cutler advised on the art of conversation; Laszo Krass reported on the quality of typewriters and coffee in Venice, while Steve Pittard charted the appalling demise of the cricket cap into the cricket helmet. Gustav Temple reported from the Walpole Bay Hotel, a bastion of old-world charm in Margate, itself a bastion of simply old world. Also: Chap Kit on scarves, Atters on peculiar taches and the Butler on gardening apparel.
