A. Boon, Antwerp

This is the coolest old school glove store in Antwerp – maybe anywhere.
The gloves are still hand-made and are available in six sizes.

    Can you bring back a pair for each of your loyal readers ? ;-)

    There is also a very cool, very tiny custom glove store in Lisbon that has been there for ages. Can’t remember the name off hand but check it out if you’re ever there.

    Oh my, how beautiful and had no idea such stores were still around! Thank you, Scott!

    Brings back happy memories of my lovely Mother telling me about when she and my Aunt would walk from Cambridge over the Longfellow Bridge to the West End of Boston where there were “glove” shops (1930′s). I often think about this…wow, stores devoted to gloves…how cool and of course, I just love gloves!

    Best wishes,

    I completely agree Sophie, I have a huge drawer/box/bookcase fetish. This looks like a wonderful store, like a place that embodies a true sartorialist. I hope they continue to stay in business.

    And please keep posts like this coming, i especially like the one about the custom cobbler in, was it, Milan?

    I’d must examine with you here. Which isn’t something I normally do! I get pleasure from reading a submit that may make people think. Additionally, thanks for permitting me to remark!

    Wow, I love the green boxes and dark wood and the display case. This shop should be in a movie!
