I agree with unbelragazzo that unlined gloves don't cut it when it is truly cold, that being said, coastal California seems like prime unlined glove terrain to me if that's where you intend to wear them primarily. Head up into the mountains or back east in the winter and you'll need something more. I can recommend the shearling and peccary (not gray of course). They are sort of a combinations. But you should really get those Merola roe deer ones in gray and call it a day.
