Some names remind us of a charmed bygone area. One of those names is Ernest Hemingway, adventurer, award-winning writer, lifestyle icon. The Ernest Hemingway 4617 is patterned after that quintessential lifestyle. The look of the frame is definitely reminiscent of the time of stress-free Key West living and writing about seafaring adventures.
The first thing one notices about this frame is the classic shape. The wayfarer shape is obvious, but the improved craftsmanship may not be as apparent. The modern plastic composite is sturdier than its original prototype, and the metal reinforced temples definitely bring it into this century. Another decidedly new development are the spring hinges, making the Hemingway 4617 an eyeglass frame for today's active lifestyles.
The colors available in this frame design help make it further suitable for men or women. Of course, the classics include black and tortoise. A stunning addition to this collection is the addition of a third color, gleaming crystal. For a nod to the storied past, with a devotion to contemporary living, the Hemingway 4617 combines all the best into one stunning frame.
