The revered American author, Ernest Hemingway, created a lifestyle that defined his era. The Ernest Hemingway 4617 eyeglass frame pays homage to that era and the fashion elements we think of whenever we picture the author's environment. With a strong nod to the classic curved square of the wayfarer frame, this eyewear takes that standard to an entirely new level.
The plastic material is lighter than the original, even though it has a bit of the same strong lines. The slightly curved linear browline extends at the outside ends, as expected, but is accented with a double-diamond stud. The nasal area is softly curved to hug the bridge of the nose comfortably all day long -- even in Key West humidity. The plastic temples have a metal core and are attached to the frame front with a contemporary spring hinge.
It's the color array that really draws attention to this frame. The classic Black is re-imagined in a glossy iteration. The Tortoise choice has a rich subtle marbled effect. The Crystal frame is a fun and imaginative sparkling clear plastic original that sets the classic on its head. Finally, the color aptly called Cookies, with its distinct variegated marbling, makes this Ernest Hemingway 4617 an original worthy of the name.
