Basically fake anything isn't cool.

It is real crocodile leather.

Losing these would suck. They are like 500 EUR.

Honestly, 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.

I've found this Made in France YSL jacket. Can someone tell me if it's of good quality:

You're entitled to your opinion, of course. Still, I probably wouldn't deem them to be high end or classy, so much as they seem to be a bid for attention - just the opposite of the sort of refinement I'd want in a pair of gloves.

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.

You are right, I'm not buying them. Waste of 500 EUR.

Hi,

 

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!

Which is the more versatile (winter) pea coat color ? Navy or grey ? Historically it should be navy, right?

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.

Personally, I don't like them at all.

Navy 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.

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 33197
I agree, buy the one that you prefer.

I will say this about grey outerwear--I am more picky about it. The fabric and color have to be just right.

Try asking this in the Saint Laurent Paris thread.
