hemingway in the winter

if i had to outline my life in phases, there would be three worth mentioning: the indiana jones phase (years 6-13); the beatles/brit pop phase (years 13-17); and the ernest hemingway phase (years 18-30).  reading hemingway is like getting punched in the gut and enjoying it.  it’s eye opening.  no one lives like hemingway any more; you couldn’t get away with it – which is why we spend time reading and re-reading his stories.  there’s a part of every man that wants to live those adventures.

hemingway knew how to dress.  i found a photo of him kicking a can in the snow (next page) and realized there was some great pictures of him dressed for the winter.  he valued a lot of the same things we do now like heavy wool pants, leather boots, plaid shirts, and shawl collar sweaters.  some things never go out of style and for good reason.  i only wish i could have found a few more photos.  check them out on the next page.

  1. Love the one of him and Hadley. One of my favorites.

    I do too. It’s killing me that I can’t find more pictures of him. I find the same ones over and over again.

  2. I would love a blown up print of Hemingway on skis!

    He had a lot of cats.

  3. Hemingway told Life that the kicking the can photo was the best photo anyone had ever taken of him.

    There’s a great feature of Hemingway with fabulous pictures and a video on this men’s shop site: http://www.benchandloom.com/men-of-character
