Style Icon: Ernest Hemingway

 

In honor of fall and all that it brings—beards and sweaters, family and travel—we dedicate this month’s style spotlight to Mr. Ernest Hemingway.

Although Hemingway’s legacy will forever exist in his iconic writing style, there is much to be said about the well-traveled veteran who called Chicago, Key West, Paris and Cuba (among many others) his home.  His name, which usually provokes an image of the burly outdoorsman mulling over his journal, also conjures up a feeling of comfort and pragmatism, home and away—an outward simplicity that masks a complex interior.

Style is not always synonymous with fashion, and function is not always attractive. But there is something to be said when there is a certain person, object or aspect of one’s life that allows you to be both discreet and enduring. This November, we salute Mr. Hemingway for his ability to be both in nature and also a key component in literature and also a voice of generations to come. Not to mention, his beard is well-suited for any Movember and all those charitable commitments you might have made.

There are a certain set of anomalies that will forever be associated with leather. It is both classic and modern, elegant and functional—it is every day and for every one without compromising luxury. As purveyors of all things leather, we at Leatherology admire the rare people who personify these qualities synonymous with leather.

 

And so, we dedicate our first featured spotlight to American author Joan Didion…Once described as possessing “cool an inch thick over bottomless reserves of heat,” the always prepared Didion understood the importance of being able to manage her on-the-go lifestyle while maintaining her status as a style icon.
