Ernest No 6
Ernest is a journal for cusious and advernturous gentlefolk. It is a guide for those who appreciate true craftsmanship, who are fascinated by curious histories and eccentric traditionsand who care more for timeless style than trends. It is a periodical of substance created for those who love to buildfires, embark on road tris, camp under a canopy of stars andrun full pelt into the sea. It is for people who whittle.
