    I've been a subscriber for the past 3 years or so. Recently read the latest book "Am I A Chap?" and loved it.

    Go to Advanced Search.

    Type in "Chap" (no need for quotes)

    Choose "Search Title and Description"

    I got 21 threads.

    Was watching a Thin Man movie today and heard the remark, "you look like a page out of Esquire". I think in today's society that would be an insult. I look forward to the day when someone tells me that I, "look like a page out of The Chap Magazine."

    I like their sense of humor, something that is... well just is lost completely in Esquire. In their attempts to amuse their readers, they lose their sartorial crowd. Hard to explain exactly how here, but let's just say that when i look at those issues of Esquire in its early years, you see a definite link between sartorial style and intelligent writing. Now you don't. The Chap has that link to looks and attitude that Esquire lost.

    Here's to The Chap.

    As if their recent activism wasn't enough, when I saw their most recent back issue features Adam Ant, I knew I wanted it. As soon as my new job starts, I think this is going to be my first (second? first?) real magazine subscription.

    I subscribe. The humour isn't quite as cutting as it used to be but it remains a good source of information on some obscure topics.

    Furthermore, if you look closely on the front cover of this issue (on the right hand side, just by the striped blazer sleeve) is my son.
    He's the small one in the black three piece suit:

    You've got to subscribe to an magazine that's had your child on the front cover!

    I've just last week dumped a years worth of The Chap onto my dentist for patients to leaf through whilst waiting. I didn't think anyone here would have wanted them.
    Sorry Chaps..! Just didn't think.
