I must say I’m one of those persons who suffers with low temperatures…As I’ve stated before, amongst my Winter essentials you’ll always find a pair of gloves and a cap. In fact, gloves are one of those items which have slowly grown on me during the past few years…I’ve come to appreciate their elegance and the complementing effect they have on an outfit.
One of the models which has seen an increasing burst in popularity is definitely the driving glove. As the name states, this variety was originally used by race car drivers as a means to protect the hands and increase grip on the steering wheel. Also available in fingerless versions, the driving glove is easily recognizable by its distinct features: perforated leather for extra breathability, open sockets on knuckles and back, and an adjustable snap fastening, which besides securing the glove in place, would originally adapt to the driver’s chronograph, ensuring a clear view.
The thing about this type of gloves is that they may seem a bit too pretentious if you’re caught anywhere else but coming off of your ride…However, when your hands are not at risk of freezing and with the current amount of touch operated gadgets (Ipad, Iphone, tablets and don’t forget cameras), they might prove to be a valuable option.
