    Quilted Cafe Racer Gloves
    S, M, L available

    I have sourced some beautiful drum-dyed, calf leather quilted gloves. They are designed as a cafe racer/vintage motorcycle glove and are constructed from durable mid-weight leather with resilient stitching. But don't be fooled, they are very suited to casual wear due to its lack of armor or other safety features. The glove is unlined and will not be bulky when worn. All the seams are tucked and make for a very sleek appearance. There is a very subtle logo on the wrist, basically invisible when worn (black stitching on black leather). The inside of the gloves have a silky nap that feels great against the skin.

    I'm so confident you'll love them that if you're not completely happy you can return them within 30 days granted they are unused and with all original packing materials.

    They will be $45 (which includes shipping, PayPal, and CA sales tax if applicable)

    Small
    7.75" from tip of middle finger to end of hand where wrist begins
    4.25" across the palm right above the thumb

    Medium
    8" from tip of middle finger to end of hand where wrist begins
    4 3/8" across the palm right above the thumb

    Large
    8.25" from tip of middle finger to end of hand where wrist begins
    4.5" across the palm right above the thumb

    These gloves fit nice and snug when you go TTS unless your hands are on the smaller side of your typical size (in this case size down).

    When measuring the palm, use a tape measure and go around the upper portion of the palm (above the thumb) like so:

    Tuma, Yes, the states price is for shipping to the CONUS. However, I am willing to work with any individual in any part of the world. I estimate to Canada will be about $5 more, and anywhere else about $10 more to ship. I will likely take a loss on these but it's OK, I'm a one man operation for now. And in the wise words of Drew Keith, I gotta bring steeze to the people. :D

    Thanks for the interest,
    Kent

    What is the brand on these? And it's surely calf leather?

    without a doubt they are black calf leather, nothing less. and its not split grain crap either. Really supple, pliable, yet durable.

    Is the strap on the side a button strap or a velcro strap?

    Is there any reinforced padding in Case of bike slides, or are these basically just for looks? (Don't get me wrong, these are beautiful looking gloves, but wondering about protection.)

    On a scale of 1-10 for protection, they'd probably get a 4. Some reinforcement in palm, thick calf, but ultimately it sacrifices protection for a sleek, form-fitting look.

    I sell an armored glove that's murdered out; this is the glove I've used the past 2 years for major rides and they've been awesome. $60 to your door.

    I recently received more interest on the armored glove, here are two more snaps with my pair that have been used for about 7000mi. Still going strong and I havn't even conditioned the leather!

    How do these handle the weather? Are they good enough for a mid western winter?

    They will likely be under insulated for a midwest winter. I have the same cafe style of gloves with insulation, goretex, and a gauntlet cuff, but I only have size small. Let me know if this interests you.
