Andrew Carnegie was what every man should aspire to be: unbelievably successful, suave and smooth with the ladies, and incredibly philanthropic. The man literally went from rags to extreme riches. From Dunfermline, Scotland, to 5th Avenue. If that’s not the embodiment of the American dream then I don’t know what is.
He amassed fortunes through investments in various industries including railroads, steel, and infrastructure. It was essentially because of him and his steel investments that New York’s modern skyscrapers could be built. He later spent his life donating all his money to important causes, donating over what today would be $5,500,000,000 to worthy causes and universities. He donated very little to the betterment of men’s fashion, a cause that really could have used the money. But that’s okay, it’s now the job of both us here at Gramercy Supply, and of you, our fashion-sensible customers, to fix men’s fashion once and for all.
Anyway, Carnegie was one of the most high-class, refined, and respected gentlemen to ever walk the earth. In fact, an entire section of Manhattan’s Upper East Side is named “Carnegie Hill.” We felt our boy Andrew was the perfect namesake for our Carnegie Bag. Not only will wearing The Carnegie give you the prim and proper look you need to be one with those in Carnegie Hill, but it also gets you one step closer to becoming as great a man as Andrew himself.
