i feel so lame asking this, but i am having a really hard time finding some very basic knitted fingerless gloves (in black or grey or natural or whatever, wool or cotton or whatever, no leather!). i've tried places like gap/old navy, some home&garden type stores, some places that only sell cashmere things, some places that only sell cotton things, some dollar stores.

i'm in vancouver, somebody help me without recommending some n(n) or whatever ones that cost $100000000000000000000000.

right. i've already tried googling places to buy them locally, as i don't really want to buy something so insubstantial online.

I say for the most Authentic fingerless gloves you should beat up a hobo or get him drunk then steal his gloves. Think about it predistressed/nastified fingerless gloves, thats custom.

What are the point of fingerless gloves? I understand their practicality for things like sports or driving, where you need both grip and dexterity - but for warmth? The fingers are the part of the hands most vulnerable to the cold, so why leave them exposed and merely cover the palm?

two points:
1. hard to pick your nose and scratch areas
2. its a hassle to take off gloves to pick nose and scratch areas
