1. Encounter 5-Weight 8'6" Fly Rod Outfit ($159) - Redford’s love for fly fishing is well documented. In his first professional acting gig — on a game show — he accepted a fishing rod in lieu of the $75 payment. In fact, “Redford’s fishing film” was shorthand for A River Runs Through It around Hollywood.
2. Utrecht Artists' Oil Paint Kit ($185) - Following his time
partying studying at University of Colorado, he enrolled at Pratt Institute of Art in New York, and traversed Europe as a painter.
3. Resistol George Straight 6X Chocolate Felt Cowboy Hat ($218) - He was catapulted to stardom in 1969 with his role as The Sundance Kid — initially to be played by Paul Newman, until director George Roy Hill recast him as Butch Cassidy, and they hired the then lesser-known Redford for the part.
4. Director's Acrylic Clapperboard ($25) - His directorial debut, 1980’s Ordinary People, is the only film for which he’s won an Oscar. In 2002 he received an honorary one for Lifetime Achievement. He was snubbed a nomination even this year for his solo, nearly silent performance in All Is Lost.
5. NEBB by Moscot Originals ($240) - In 1981, Redford and a group of friends gathered in Utah to launch what would become the Sundance Institute Filmmakers & Directors Lab, where emerging artists continue to work with leading writers and directors to bring their vision to the screen.
6. Sierra Club Membership ($15+) - A dedicated environmentalist who’s supported (and sat on the board of) many environmental organizations, he founded the Redford Center — an extension of his activities at Sundance focused primarily on “transforming social and environmental issues into films that inspire positive change.”
7. Nakona Classic 12" Walnut Glove ($219) - He attended the University of Colorado for a year and a half on a baseball scholarship, and was a member of Kappa Sigma before being asked to leave.
8. Ray-Ban Aviator Classic ($195) - Before his breakout role in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, he lost out on the role of Ben Braddock in The Graduate to which he replied, “I never did look like a 21-year-old just out of college who’d never been laid."
