It is real crocodile leather.

Ask A Question, Get An Answer... - Post All Quick Questions Here (Classic menswear) - Page 1953post #29282 of 3345112/11/14 at 5:39ampost #29283 of 3345112/11/14 at 6:09amHonestly, ask yourself, is a pair of $500 gloves really worth it? If you are here asking, then I really am not sure if they are for you. Personally, I think they are shiny and gaudy, and are rarely, rarely done well. If you really want a pair of gator gloves, I would recommend getting a sueded gator. But in regards to gloves, I am just not really sure that it is a great material for a pair of gloves.
Finally, as far as gloves go, I prefer a matte look. Try looking at peccary or carpincho. I just picked these up, and this is what pops into my mind when I think about exotic gloves:
Usually they are in some shade of mid to dark brown.post #29284 of 3345112/11/14 at 6:21ampost #29285 of 3345112/11/14 at 6:48am
Admittedly, I'm sure there are many gloves which are far worse. Gloves with glitter or semi-precious stones or purple gloves with feathers or what have you. The gloves you're talking about sort of say "Look at me," but I acknowledge that they don't scream it at the top of their lungs. They're not to my taste, but they are tolerable.
I also don't really get the connection between crocodile leather and gloves. I mean, I associate crocs with hot places. You know, the tropics. And gloves with cold weather. So some conflict there. It'd be different with, say, a belt, which isn't really an item I tend to associate with a specific temperature range. I get that this is a pretty minor point, but at least for me, there it is.
Still and all, they're not god awful by any means. I suppose if you can afford them the way the average person can afford a cup of coffee, and if you like their look, you could do worse than to buy them. I mean, they're not horrible and if it'd make you feel good to wear them now and then, you wouldn't be doing anyone any real harm. But I'd probably drop $500 on some hand-crafted sterling silver aglets, before I'd bother dropping $500 on those gloves.
Just my take on them, mind you.post #29286 of 3345112/11/14 at 7:00ampost #29287 of 3345112/11/14 at 7:05ampost #29288 of 3345112/11/14 at 7:46am
Trying to get an idea of what colors to wear this winter. I purchased a Spiewak Andrea Olive Parka(love this coat!!). I also have a pair Black cherry Red wings and a generic Olive scarf. Any recommendations for what color gloves and winter hat should I go with?
I was thinking tan gloves, but won't match the boots or anything for that matter.
thanks!post #29289 of 3345112/11/14 at 11:06ampost #29290 of 3345112/11/14 at 11:15amQuote:
I personally find charcoal grey the most versatile colour. I can't think of a colour that absolutely won't work with grey, whereas with navy, there are a couple (black not so much; purple is hit and miss I think). Either one is very versatile; I just find grey slightly more so.post #29291 of 3345112/11/14 at 11:17ampost #29292 of 3345112/11/14 at 11:20amNavy is more classic, and in my most humble of opinions, the more versatile color. Navy can literally be worn with everything. The problem with grey, is that grey on grey does not always work. It works frequently, but not always. Personally, I just prefer navy jacket, blue shirt, grey pants.post #29293 of 3345112/11/14 at 11:25amQuote:Originally Posted by Newcomer

I think that combo is better, as well. I prefer the look of a navy peacoat, and I think we're really splitting hairs (as we've both said) on versatility between the two. So, I think the question, @Feryll, is which one do you like better?post #29294 of 3345112/11/14 at 11:47ampost #29295 of 3345112/11/14 at 1:02pm
