Men’s gloves

gloves for men

Today we present a mid season special with a nearly indispensible accessory: a pair of gloves! To choose a decent pair of gloves, you need to take the following points into account:

  • Your size. The size is generally given by a number: 7, 7.5, 8… A right size glove fits well around your fingers, protects you from the cold, and allows you to feel your fingertips. If they’re made of leather, pick them a little tight as the leather will soon loose.
  • Their intended use. Don’t take big skiing gloves if you are walking around town or for cycling. Rather choose fine leather gloves, much more elegant
  • The lining. The lining can be wool, silk, cashmere or fleece. Take into account the season and your sensitivity to cold. A cashmere or fleece lining will of course be warmer than silk.
  • The look. At this point, choose gloves you like, which style (shape, finishing and colour) suits more the clothes (coat, shoes etc) you’re going to wear them with.
