    Excuse the unrelated subject of my comment, but I really would love to see the Satorialist come to Austin, Texas. The trip would not be a disappointment.

    Question: I have small hands (for a guy); I’m a small guy. I can never find gloves to fit me… any suggestions?

    Nice gloves. I think I may get those for my dad.

    I have an exact pair handed down from my Grandfather to my Father and to me. Old? Yes.
    Beautiful? Absolutely.

    They look like pig suede, which, in my experience, wears quickly and stains permanently. What’s the story?

    great post. scott fazzini, try and they will make your glove to measures (send in a tracing or photocopy of your hand) for a quite reasonable price.

    Despite the weather being 40 degrees celsius and the humidity 60% in Kununurra WA – I LOVE these gloves

    Scott (Fazzini): I have the same problem but have discovered that Japan is the best place to find amazing gloves in small sizes. I never have a problem there.

    Hi Anthony C.. I don’t think all pig skin suffers these faults. I have a saddle with a pigskin seat and it’s only just showing wear this year (it’s about 35 years old!)

    I have a similar pair from Hermes – an essential to any mans wardrobe imo.

    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

    Next time you are in Paris, try Mary Beyer store on jardins du Palais Royal ( west side between Ludot and Marc Jacobs ).

    gloves are great! wish i could put them under the tree, but can’t find them. since you recommended them, would be nice if you included a link.

    Really nice gloves. If u happen to visit Budapest, check out the oldest glovemaker shop in Hungary, even Jacko bought some when he was here. Adress:Budapest, Régiposta utca 14.
    Some random pictures

    They sell both machine- and handsewn gloves. Price range:30-100 euros

    I love my alpaca-lined peccari gloves! They are over a decade old and they look better every day!

    Are these your replacement for your cashmere pair that ripped? I definitely think leather gloves are the way to go, they’re warm and will last a long, long time if they’re taken care of.

    Shop Vintage ♥

    @Scott Fazzini: You can also buy the gloves in female sizes.

    @Szabolcs: The trick of making really good gloves is not only the choice of material, but also the cutting tecnique, in which the hungarians are among the best in the industry.

    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.

    Definitely check out Mary Beyer on the other side of Palais Royal – Ludot side – gloves are custom made and their pecari ones are to die for.
    Ordered a custom made pair yesterday, not pecari though.

    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!!

    Bought a pair like these to my boyfriend a couple of years ago. He still loves them. Best gift he got from me ever ´cause he is quite demanding when it comes to appearance.
