UPDATE: These just went on sale via the Ralph Lauren Private Sale. Use the code NOV0307 (those are zeros) for an extra 15% off to get this price through November 7th.
I know. Ouch. Expensive. $90 is a lot for one pair of gloves for many of us, but hear me out.
They’ll go on sale at some point. The above pair cost around $55. And while that’s still expensive when you can pick up a pair of no name leather gloves at Kohl’s for, what like $30 or $40? Here’s what they have going for them:
- They come with Thinsulate, so they’re decently warm.
- They’re lined with lambswool. Also a plus.
- The snap buckle at the wrist is keeps them from being boring.
- The quilted pattern makes them a nice mid point between full blown driving gloves, and those generic three stitched line leather gloves almost every guy on the planet seems to have.
For what it’s worth, they’ve held up quite well. Haven’t babied them in the least either. They even went through the washer once on accident and came out just fine on the other side. They do seem to run a little small, and I had to exchange a medium for a large. Never thought of having gigantic hands, nor are they small.
Available in black and brown, and during a 25% off sale they’d run $66.
Also an option: Calvin Klein’s wrist detail leather gloves for
just under $50 (update: $39.00. CK is running a 40% off accessories sale through 11/9) They don’t have the quilted pattern, but they do have some texture by way of a pebbled instead of smooth leather exterior. Should get cheaper with a code of some kind the next time one pops up. What are your go-to gloves? Leave your pick below.
