The Third Grand Anarcho-Dandyist Ball The Chap, in association with Bourne & Hollingsworth, presents:
The 3rd Grand Anarcho-Dandyist Ball. Stiff collars are already being starched. Studs are being polished. Cigarette cases loaded with Players Navy Cut. Pipes charged with Brown Study. Brogues turned into correspondent shoes. For the third Grand Anarcho-Dandyist Ball has been scheduled to take place on 3rd December in London.
According to tradition, the Chap has selected another sumptuous 1930s ballroom in London, slightly larger, more glamorous and centrally located than the last. Our host this year will be none other than Viv the Spiv, purveyor of exotic meats, nylon stockings and illicit jokes.
Accordingly, we are asking our guests to honour his presence by dressing as spivvily and caddishly as they can, and for the ladies to don their sassiest stockings (replacements supplied by Mr The Spiv on request). But fear not, those of you for whom “Ball” means popping your finest white tie/military uniform/eccentric tableau of clothing – quite simply, come as you are, or at least as you are once a year.
Your entertainment for the evening includes a headline spot by Fat 45, a stunningly authentic and swinging 11-piece jump jive big band. There will be other performers, yet to be confirmed, esoteric side shows and of course our usual fleet of secretaries and butlers, who will discreetly arrange your trysts via our Jeeves Dating service.
