The first of the season's gloves came in the other day and we featured them on the store, but I did not post about them because a confused communication left us without one of the styles. Those of course are the now in stock light gray suede dress gloves in the photo, my personal favorite for urban day wear with a Chesterfield or any other dressy overcoat.
Uncovered hands were considered rude for hundreds of years, and the gray suede are but one of four politely stylish hand-stitched unlined gloves from Rome’s Merola Gloves, the 125 year old firm that makes for brands such as Brioni, Kiton, and Lamborghini. Unlined gloves are more flexibile and fit more closely, permitting more dexterity than their lined relations while still keeping the hands comfortable in temperatures down to freezing.
The stars of this hand show are unlined Carpincho dress gloves for day wear, From the skin of the South American Capybara, Carpincho leather looks like textured suede, is supple and very durable, and has a one-way grain that allows the glove to stretch to fit without becoming misshapen over time. They and the gray suede are joined by unlined dove gray Napa leather dress gloves for day wear and unlined black Napa leather dress gloves for funerals and evenings.
Offered in small (8 in or 20 cm), Medium (8 1/2 in or 21 1/2 cm), Large (9 in or 23 cm) and XL (9 1/2 in or 24 cm).
