Classic from issue 16. So far as I’m concerned the most important item from The Chap Manifesto is number 8: “THOU SHALT NEVER WEAR PLIMSOLLS WHEN NOT DOING SPORT. Nor even when doing sport. Which you shouldn’t be doing anyway. Except cricket”. (In common parlance, those hideous and disposable artificial fibered walking billboards known as trainers, in great part sweatshop manufactured, ubiquitous even amongst anti-capitalistic regressives). Anyway, back to larynxial decoration: I’m pleased to report that my wonderful friend and collaborator is of The Splendid variety which he assures me is worn primarily for tactical reasons to outwit bureaucraps.
