1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Do you do them in dark brown? They look good and I feel the market is short on simple good looking brown gloves.

    I'm seriously considering a pair of these from Rapha:

    But mostly for cool off-bike days or quick trips to the store. Most days I wear my Helds.

    I have been looking for some fall/spring gloves... I have some perforated hot weather gloves and some nice chunky insulated Cortech Scarabs

    Might add these to the collection

    Completely agree. Unfortunately this comes in black only.

    I hope to be producing my own line of gloves within the next few years and will definitely have more color and leather selection, along with in-house designs. Until then, my black leather gloves are the best value, and frankly the best design, out there right now. Dianese does some nice ones but pricey, and RSD tends to be overdesigned.

    I sell another model but havnt had a chance to advertise it. They have a breezy neoprene-like material on the back with a durable leather palm, available in a black or white version. Theyre actually pretty sick and affordable. I get some pics for you guys.

    Here are a few snaps of the "Summer Glove" as I call it. You can see the black version under the white. As stated, they feature a neoprene like backing, mesh finger webbing, and leather palms with padding. There are nice little bumpers on the knuckles, some quilting on the thumb, and a neat velcro closure. The whites are my personal favorite.

    I recommend sizing down one size on these, similar to the driving gloves I sell. That way it'll fit like a second skin.

    I keep forgetting this is a fashion forum. Only threads I frequent are this and the fitness thread.

    Re: the rapha gloves, that pair was probably fresh off the line and not broken in.

    Re: the icons. Ain't got nothing on my Road Stars.

    Maybe it is fresh...but Rapha isn't exactly a company that cheaps out on their promotional materials. If something looks that bad in their own advertising photos, I don't have high hopes...

    FWIW, the fingers on the brown pair on their site (the ones pictured here are "tan") look better, but no $245 pair of gloves should look like that.
