Celebrating tweeds, Victory rolls, and all things vintage, The Chap Olympiad has firmly cemented itself as Britains most eccentric sporting event.

With faux fur stoles, jodhpurs and full-length gowns on display, guests wholeheartedly immersed themselves in the retro merriment. Click through the images to see the ladies in their most treasured eBay, charity shop and inherited finery
