Oh yes, when its cold, I LOVE a GLOVE!
And when you are outside on cold days on your bicycle, surely they are essential. Nothing adds cosiness faster than the old scarf, gloves, hat routine. I work with my hands all day and if they get cold I am useless, so when its chilly in the studio I sometimes work in light gloves with the finger ends cut off (makes a real difference and surprisingly small loss of dexterity). Love a glove. Best one’s I ever had came from tiny kiosk near the Pont d V, Florence; punched very fine black kid; like Heaven!. B
anyone from New Zealand – eve wallace makes fabulous, cosy gloves. i have had mine for about 5 years and love them – will keep you warm in true cold. the photo there doesn’t look great, but if you find a stockist near you, worth a look.
The Maison Fabre shop at the Palais Royal in Paris is beautiful. The quality is excellent (to me equal to Hermes) et prices are very competitive (EUR 120-200). They make a lot of different colors – even in Pecari.
Oooo! So funny to be seeing this post after Xmas! I just gave my dad a pair of unlined peccary (so many diff spellings) driving gloves for Christmas. I had never heard of peccary leather before buying them and now I am seeing them everywhere!
Got them from Sermoneta Gloves. Love them so much i might need to buy me a pair too!!
