Inspired Style: Ernest Hemingway Edition


jean-patchett-and-ernest-hemingway-by-clifford-coffin-vogue-1950-big936full-ernest-hemingway1ernest-hemingway55305032-ernest-hemingwaySailor, adventurer, soldier, lover, and writer of the highest order, Ernest Hemingway was a big man, both literally and figuratively, a swaggering bull amid the cheering stadium of the 20th Century.

A fine literary mind matched with brawn and bravado, Hemingway was an hugely iconic figure within a moment in history when iconic personalities were plentiful. He penned many a stunning, spare – yet emotionally resonant – stories, many of them culled directly from his own colorful life. He reported on wars, seduced women, smoked cigars with Castro. Hemingway was both a man of letters and of action – amateur boxer, ambulance driver, bullfight fan and a hunter of big game.

And his  personal style matched his talents. Look through photos of Mr. H and you’ll find a man in safari gear or linen suits – looking as if he is about to sail into a storm or shoot down a lion, depending upon his mood. He seemed to disdain shirts, but when he does don a top, no one could wear a cowl neck cable sweater like him, beard overflowing, steely gaze looking for a fight. Hats off to Hemingway, a true blue American man.

…Thanks for the inspiration from and the ever talented Miss Gabrielle D’Amico
