Reading is Sexy: Ernest Hemingway

1. Chambray Shirt by Madewell. Luckily for us all, the chambray shirt has made a big comeback. Hemingway rocked the socks out of a denim shirt, as any true outdoorsman will. Guys, here’s a great pick for you.

2. Boyfriend Chinos by J Crew. Indoors, outdoors. Daytime, nighttime. These pants blend form and function beautifully. They imply you care very little, and yet somehow, you look effortlessly stunning. Winning.

3. Fringe vest by Free People. Granted, a fringe vest is a tough one to pull off. Hemingway managed to do it, but he also managed to produce spare, tight prose that put a more popular lyrical style to shame. Then he won a Nobel Prize for it. We say, give the fringe vest a try.

4. Hiking boots by Danner. Hiking boots are synonymous with Danner. I will leave you with nothing more than this simple fact. Other than Hemingway wore hiking boots.

5. Vintage Citizen by American Apparel. How long have I been fighting this marlin? How long have I been working on this short story? How long have I been looking this good in this watch?

And lastly, for your viewing pleasure, we give you Hemingway’s passport photo in 1923.¬†Which brings to mind we most certainly need to produce a Reading is Sexy: Hemingway the Younger Years post, sooner rather than later.

What’s cookin’ good lookin’?
