1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    $35 flat. This includes shipping, PayPal fees, and CA sales tax if applicable.

    Have you ever bought a pair of lamb driving gloves that was so thin that you were wondering when it was going to tear or stretch to the point of deformity? Or have you ever bought cheap driving gloves where the seam allowances are huge and it looks like shit?

    I have managed to source what I believe to be some excellent calf leather driving gloves. These gloves are guaranteed to be the nicest, most durable driving gloves you can find for the money. Made with midweight calf leather, this is an excellent glove for California winters and the other 3 seasons elsewhere. The leather is perforated on the top and the palm also features padded quilting for an aggressively styled finish. The glove is unlined so there is no bulkiness. When you put them on you can truly feel the substantiality and suppleness of the leather. The inside of the glove has a wonderful nap that makes it feel like you are wearing a soft chamois. If you're not completely happy send them back within 30 days for a full refund, no questions asked.

    Better yet, once they are sufficiently worn in and have started to contour to the shape of your hand, I have found that they will work with touchscreen phones! I have been using my pair on a Android Sumsung Note II and an iPhone4 with no problems.

    In all honesty, you could probably even use these gloves for lifting at the gym; they're that durable.

    I recommend sizing down one from your "typical" commercial size. I am wearing a medium and the fit was snug at first but has molded perfectly to my hands. Please message me with sizing questions or to place an order.

    Sizing:

    Here is my hand for reference:
    8.75" around the palm area
    8" from tip of middle finger to wrist

    Extra Small:
    4" across upper palm
    7.5" from tip of middle finger to wrist elastic band

    Small:
    4 1/8" across upper palm
    7.75" from tip of middle finger to wrist elastic band

    Medium:
    4.25" across the upper palm
    8" from middle finger to wrist elastic band

    Large:
    4.5" across upper palm
    8.5" from tip of middle finger to wrist elastic band

    I am interested in a pair. Out of curiosity, where are these made?

    Thanks for the question. The company I am ordering from is USA based and many of their gloves are manufactured in the USA. However, this particular model is made in China. That may also explain why they have no branding whatsoever except for a tag inside the glove. Despite their origin, the USA based company, being a motorsports company, is a stickler for quality control and these gloves are made very well. I wouldn't have my personal guarantee if they weren't.

    Thanks for looking!
