    Hello,

    I need some help on purchasing glove for the cold weather in New York. I am quite new on purchasing and identifying good quality gloves.

    However, I had a glove in mind from Ralph Lauren. I want to ask if anyone had purchase a Shearling glove from ralph lauren and what comments do they have for the product. I read review that RL's shearling gloves are great quality. I am asking because I am quite afraid because of the shell is made from 100% suede. As I have also read that suede is a terrible material for usage in precipitation, which I intend to use it for during the snowy or rainy times in cold weather.

    Link to the shearling glove I am referring too: http://www.ralphlauren.com/product/index.jsp?productId=24140416

    Please correct me if I am wrong. The term shell for glove is the outer part of the glove. The lining is the interior of the glove.

    Nice gloves. If you handle wet things in cold weather suede is a mistake as it will soak up liquid.

    I once had a pair of J.Crew women's shearling gloves that looked very similar. I took them to my local dry cleaners and the process removed the softness, so you may want to give special instructions to the cleaners.
