Pictures of nice gloves...? - Page 22

post #316 of 510
Wish I could find some peccary hide, I'm interested in making gloves but can never find suppliers.

Peccary is related to hogskin and could be considered a type of hogskin, iirc.

It is possible to find cheap ones. I got mine at various vintage stores for about $10-15 each. They were unworn and probably from the 40's or 50's.

As for advantages, imo, they're supple, mould to your hands well, and are really durable. Not sure if there's any other advantages. I also like deer or elkskin gloves for the same reasons, and they're much cheaper.


Edit: Celery, this place sells peccary hides.

Didnt know that didnt ship to sweden though.

I don't mind paying that for gloves, they just have to be good gloves and fit and look right.

you can buy peccary gloves here:

Hampton: I'm sure Barbera has used the pair for many years. The greatest patina comes with age.

I have used Paularun for several pairs of bespoke gloves. Just trace your hands on an A4 paper, scan, email. I've some pics attached to this thread, just scroll downwards. Prices are around $100 for one bespoke pair. The only fault was a very long waiting period, this is something they should improve on.

Peccary is a wildhog species from South America and small parts of NA. A protected species, but the natives have rights for hunting and skins. Supply is quite limited outside SA countries and prices always high.

Peccary leather is very strong and washable. It is a very unique leather that is becoming increasingly scarce due to Citis International Trade Export restrictions. Peccary is hunted in the wild by aboriginal natives and the hides are sold. The Peruvian Government limits the amount of hides that can be sold to protect the species from over-hunting / extinction.

Okay, thanks. $100 don't sound that bad since everyone was sharing $300-$400 gloves on peccary gloves? First time really I hear of this, might give it a try. So Paula Run has good quality and everything?

Yes, all PR gloves are hand-stitched and cut. Lined gloves have lovely, soft alpaca wool. The workmanship is there, but delivery times may drag. Skins are chrome-tanned, I'm not sure if any tannery does peccary hides with vegetables.

That sounds like a good price and just in time for fall 2013!
post #326 of 510

Sounds good. Might give it a try :)!

anyone do this yet?

This thread pretty much convinced me to pick up a pair of Dents (I live in chilly Canada, so I thought maybe rabbit-lined than cashmere would be the better choice).

 

Then I ran across these: http://www.mrporter.com/product/315369

 

Now, I know these are not very warm, and a little pricier, but I thought since Christmas is coming around, this could be a little gift to myself, and I've survived until now without a solid pair of gloves. I drive a 1973 Pontiac Ventura (though it will be going away for the winter), so I've thought about picking up some Driving Gloves before, since they might help at night with the windows down.

 

My question to you gentlemen is this: Are Driving Gloves outside the car an absolutely no-no? I thought these looked just enough like regular gloves (covered over knuckles for example), that they might pass, but want your opinion.

^ I'm also really new to the idea of nicer gloves, but it seems like having driving gloves would be nifty, but an unlined pair like that would be regrettable after the novelty wore off and the cold started sinking in.
