A brief history of driving gloves.
 

Appearing right from the beginning of motor racing, the driving gloves allowed pilots to gain in comfort, precision and unique sensations. To master their wide wooden steering wheels, often slippery, this accessory was essential. They were also used as bulwark against fire or cold during races. Driving gloves are then the pilot’s best ally, on the same basis as  jet helmets or goggles. This new comfort allowed pilots to save valuable time during races, a valuable gain to win victory. Nowadays, driving gloves are still used in motoring races but in a more technical and less elegant version. They represent way more than just a simple style accessory, they represent a piece of motor racing history.

100% French artisanal manufacture.
 

Our craftmen manufacture these suede driving gloves in one of France’s last historic glove making birthplace. We chose kidskin for this model, a leather renowned for its robustness, finesse and flexibility which requires a technique and expertise only our few master Glovers left own. The seams are made using the « English stitching holes » technic which consists of sewing together two overlapping layers of leather. This subtle material mix (the goat suede on the back of the hand and the full-grain leather of the palm) gives these gloves an elegant vintage touch. Finally, our emblem (the butterfly screw), is engraved on the snap fastener to subtly evoque motor sport.

Sophistication and unique sensations.
 

Hands on the steering wheel while wearing these pilot’s gloves, you will discover new and unknown driving sensations. As the Gentlemen Drivers you will drive or steer your vintage or modern sports car on the road, and why not on racing tracks. Their comfort will make you forget the mileage, and the pleasure of driving will be the  only thing you will remember.
