They can be found cycling about England, wearing tweeds older than themselves, reading the novels of Evelyn Waugh and disapproving of things. They are dismayed at the possibility that British barristers and judges may abandon their traditional ceremonial wigs; what would Rumpole say to that? They are the Young Fogeys, who see no reason to wait for old age before becoming cranky and set in their ways.

The Chap Magazine
"The Chap proposes to take a stand against this culture of vulgarity. We must show our children that the things worth fighting for are not the latest plastic plimsolls but a shiny pair of brogues. We must wean them off their alcopops and teach them how to mix martinis. Let the young not be ashamed of their flabby paunches, which they try to hide in their nylon tracksuits - we shall show them how a well-tailored suit can disguise the most ruined of bodies. Finally, let us capitalise on youth's love of peculiar argot Ð only replace their pidgin ghetto-speak with fruity bons mots and dry witticisms."
