In the January 2012 edition of 2nd Magazine, the editors feature a profile on the great American writer Ernest Hemingway. Taking photos from the numerous books about Papa, they explore the classic style that he embodied. The trench, the charcoal suit, chinos and the classic white trainer. All pieces that were valid then and still relevant today. What really make this feature stand out is how the editors go one step further and feature brands that currently carry these pieces. Allowing you to purchase your own piece of Hemingway style.
A brand that has gotten my attention over the past few months is William Fox & Sons. Described as purveyors of timeless, British Gentlemen’s Sporting Goods with over 100 years history and 3 generations of experience. With the launch of their updated site over the holidays came their A/W look-book.
Traditional tweed and quilted blazers, herringbone caps and hand-knit bobble hats are key pieces in the collection. Color is brought in via trapper and day packs in bright blues, yellows and reds. Classic wood/bone walking sticks round out the collection. All of WF&S pieces can be found at PRESENT LONDON.
Based on the success of last years holiday gift guide, the team here at Noble County Gold has done it again. We have searched the interweb for great products, made by great companies who manufacture here in the USA. What better way to warm the hearts of friends and family than by giving them a gift that supports the American economy and the American worker.
