“Write things worth reading, or do things worth the writing” – the words of Benjamin Franklin, the inspiration behind the college of Franklin and Marshall.
Polos, t shirts, hoodies, sweat pants – all covered by the US inspired Italian designer label, but there’s so much more to this clothing brand than just clothes. And while some people already know that the style of Franklin and Marshall polos and sweats are inspired by the old school American college, there is yet, still so much more to it, including Benjamin Franklin’s wise words:
“If you would not be forgotten, as soon as you are dead and rotten, either write things worth reading, or do things worth the writing.” These inspiring words from one of America’s most influential men is exactly what has been trickled down through generations of young, impressionable students over the years at the Franklin and Marshall College in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. And the Franklin and Marshall polos, tops and t shirts that we wear today were designed to bring the Americanised academic look back into mainstream fashion all over the world.
America has never forgotten Benjamin Franklin. For his wise words, for his inventions, for his philosophy, his science, his music and his work as a statesman and economist, the Pennsylvanian college stands today to pay tribute to his vigour for life, and doing things worth remembering. Do you wish not to be forgotten? In the style of your Franklin and Marshall polos and sweats, make sure you do something spectacular.
Today, Americans honour Benjamin Franklin as one of the founding fathers of their country. Not only can his name be remembered by his national memorial, his science museum and the college in Lancaster, but his philosophies can live on through Franklin and Marshall polos, shirts and hoodies. So every time you put on your Franklin and Marshall polo, ready for a few drinks at your local, we hope you remember Ben’s wise words…
