Malfy Gin con Limone Review

By Michelle Connolly

Big, bold citrusy flavours are the main characteristic of this beautiful lemon based Gin. Despite the historical heritage of the area – Moncalieri on the outskirts of Turin is famed for liqueurs like Martini Rossi, Carpano and Cinzano – it was a leap of faith that paid off for Fratelli Ferrero di Riccardo, opening the […]

Why I’ve Introduced a Standing Desk : VARIDESK Review

By Adam

I work with a team of guys all younger than me. I’ve only just snuck the wrong side of 30 but at times I can hear myself sounding like a (very on-trend) 70 year old, as I bumble on about the benefits of Chiropractic care, Yoga and Pilates. It all started two years ago when […]

First Time Drivers with Aviva

By Rikesh Chauhan

Here at The Dapper Chapper, we take cars seriously. There’s something quite satisfying about seeing heads turn as you roll past in a 1930s classic, or a contemporary supercar.

Proverb: Lifefuelled Skincare for Men

By Alex Noble

‘Real men don’t use moisturiser.’ This is what I’m told. A real man, you know, a son of Adam, allows his skin to wear naturally and turn into what can only be described as elephant hide. It sounds ridiculous but for a large proportion of chaps out there, facial care is seen as feminine and emasculating. […]

Andaz Hotel: Sir Terence Conran Suite

By Alex Noble

Who doesn’t like hotel life? The robes, mini bar, (usually) wonderfully comfortable bed, breakfast in your robe on your wonderfully comfortable bed, a midnight bubble bath, room service (Champagne); the list of perks is truly endless and I for one am not afraid to admit I stay in hotels within my home city, just because I love […]

Ted Baker Tonics Review

By Adam

In this day and age, us Chappers are constantly bombarded with scents, infusions and products of alchemy, each with their own overly-dramatic marketing story.

Dressing for the Races

There’s not many better days out during the British summer time than a trip to the races. It’s a great occasion that offers the chance to showcase your sense of style by donning a chic and trendy ensemble, whilst indulging in an early glass of champagne (it’s five o’clock somewhere and all that jazz).  Nothing compares […]

The Perfect Place to Watch Wimbledon in London

By Alex Noble

Wimbledon is one of Britain’s most iconic and traditional sporting occasions, which has the romantic power to turn even the most un-sporty people, into die-hard tennis fans for a fortnight. It’s a fabulously British affair that successfully highlights all the best (and worst) aspects of BST, mainly due to the weather’s infamous unpredictability.  It really […]
