A brief history of driving gloves.
 

Driving gloves were conceived for pilots on the eve of the first motor races. Offering more precision and sensation, they quickly became must haves, just as googles or bowl helmets. Pilots were able to have a better grip on their wide and slippery wooden steering wheels, thanks to an increased confort and catch in hand.Driving gloves became their best allies by ensuring them to win few seconds and, sometimes, even win a race. They acted as a second skin, shielding them from fire and cold.Today’s driving gloves a far different from what they used to be, thanks to technical evolutions. However, they represent far more than just a simple accessory : they represent a part of history of motor racing.

100% French artisanal manufacture.
 

Our master glovers forged their exceptional expertise for decades. We chose to assemble two kidskins for these suede driving gloves. The back of the hand is in suede and the palm is full-grain leather. Kidskin has a reputation of being extremely robust and supple and also offers a rare finesse. The “English stitching”, the technique used for the seams, consists in assembling two overlapping leather layers. With the kidskin and the “English stitchin” our gloves offer a unique grip. Finally, as a token to motor sport, our emblem, the butterfly screw, is engraved on the snap fastener.

Sophistication and unique sensations.

Put on your gloves, your Gulf jacket and jump in your racer to rediscover the vicinities, but don’t forget to be back for diner! As a Gentleman driver, you will seek for the perfect road with your racer. The gloves’ comfort will not leave you insensitive, to the point you will forget to check your watch !
