    If I had €1000 lying around with nothing to spend it on...

    Crocodile, by Aubercy.

    Nice. BB offered croc gloves last year in its Christmas catalog. IIRC, they were $2000.00.

    ^ But somehow quite intriguing, too...I would actually like to try them on... (that company -like much of the French style) isn't so much to my taste- too "airy" and manneristic with hints at a certain new fangledness and suspicions of noveau riche (very fitting to this age, of course), I prefer the British and Italians...love French literature, though. Also bought some for colder weather: [​IMG]

    Those are neat, and they hold a dual purpose for slapping some bitches up good. [​IMG]
    Speaking of slapping... What kind of glove is recommended for slapping whilst saying, 'I say, you have offended me this day and I demand satisfaction.' ?

    Photo taken from a suitable wardrobe site, chamois chester jeffs. http://asuitablewardrobe.dynend.com/...ow-gloves.html

    I will be ordering a hand traced pair soon, unlined since one can find any glove lining they need such as silk later. I want them to fit skin tight, as was depicted in a photo one posted of Winston Churchill wearing his on the street in his top hat.

    Also remember seeing some gloves in the "Murder Rooms" series of Sherlock Holmes videos- white knight stratagem, one of the suspected was ambidextros, and had a penchant for chamois gloves.

    For that I prefer something like this:

    But I recommend going bespoke, as they don't really stretch a lot.

    Here's an action shot of my Chester Jeffries gloves (ordered last winter so they have a few months of Minnesota Winter wear). IIRC, they took about 4 weeks to receive.

    (apologies if the pic doesn't show up right away, the imageshack server is slow on this one today)


    Are those the Man About Towns? I was thinking of getting them but the image on the website makes the fingers look a little large and clunky. Yours seem nice; any more action shots?

    If I recall- it was the tiffany model, which has a sleeker finger. As they are lined in fur- they're a little bulkier looking.

    I assumed the Tiffany was a ladies glove. Yours doesn't have the stitched points, and I know there's an option not to have those, but the Tiffany looks like a longer glove in general.

    Interesting that this thread came up just as I have 2 pairs of Chester Jeffries on the way - mine is a Kensington in dark brown with a hunter green silk lining, and hers is a Paris in mocha with a fur lining. And in my emails with Chester Jeffries they gave me the distinct impression that the Tiffany was a ladies model..? [​IMG]

    Does this mean the Paris is a ladies glove too?

    I wanted the slightly longer glove. I don't think the names really mean anything and on some there seems to be no real difference... but I do know these had the sleeker, less-blocky fingertips.

    At any rate- not sure I recall the model, and yes, I prefer them without stitching.
