Few stories inspire quite like that of Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay’s 1953 Everest climb. While Hillary and Norgay’s pioneering Everest expedition has remained one of the most fabled tales of all time, influencing everyone from other explorers, to Nigel Cabourn, to Mr. Lean himself the duo’s legacy stretches far beyond the mountain. Hillary and Norgay might be best known for those shots of them grinning at the summit in some seriously covetable parkas, but the photos of them back on level ground, still grinning in their rakish suits and eccentric outfits are just as notable. Stay humble, on and off the mountain. —JG
