Driving gloves may seem like a throwback in fashion. They remind us of days when you dressed up for a drive and made an entire event of it. It may seem like driving gloves are no longer in style, but you would be very wrong about that.
Men’s driving gloves are not only practical but also incredibly versatile in fashion. Whether keeping your hands warm in the winter, protected while working outside, or keeping your new car from unseemly handprints, the perfect gloves can make a world of difference.
But how do you figure out which ones will be the best for you? We are here to help you out with that.
Finding the Perfect Fit
One of the most important things to consider when finding your perfect driving gloves is the fit. While men’s driving gloves can come in generic sizes like small, medium, large, and so and so forth, some brands are more detailed in their sizing options.
If you can, it is a great idea to try on your gloves and make sure that the fit is comfortable or not. They should be snug, but not too tight, with enough room around your fingers to be able to clench your fists comfortably.
Finding the right fabric of driving glove is just as important as finding the perfect fit. While you may prefer a particular material, you may want to do a little bit more research to know what kind will fit your lifestyle. If you are looking for a dressier look, maybe leather gloves are the way you want to go. If you are looking to for something to fit your winter wardrobe, maybe look for a softer fabric that keeps the heat insulated.
One thing that you need to make sure of is that it is comfortable for you. Does the fabric itch? Is it breathable? Does it chafe against your skin? These are all questions to ask yourself. This goes double for leather men’s driving gloves. It’s essential to find a leather glove that will mold and stretch to your hands, while also keeping the quality of its fabric.
We suggest that if you are looking to buy leather gloves, check the quality of the leather. Is it real, or is it faux, where was the leather sourced from, is it lined or unlined, is it a hundred 100% leather, etc. Also if you are specifically looking for driving gloves, find a softer leather that has some grip to it so that you can hold on to the steering wheel. While softer gloves may feel better, you will have a harder time gripping the wheel, so keep that in mind when shopping.
In the end, driving gloves are the right accessory of a gentleman, and are definitely something that can elevate your look. So take a look at some of our favorites like the Men’s Deerskin Leather Driving Gloves, and take a step into driving in style.
