Gloving this time of year: From Penfield to Canada Goose


IT WAS Sandy Shaw, the ‘bare foot princess of pop’, who so famously sang Hand in Glove and how right she was when she sang ‘let the people stare, I really don’t know and I really don’t care’.
Exactly how I feel Madam Shaw, especially when sporting some essential winter kit to keep my Germans' warm.

If you are going to start right, you have to do so with an English company that has been producing quality garments since 1777, Dents.
The range of gloves is something to behold, but I realise Xmas is a time for enjoying yourself so although the entire range is class, I reckon these four are bumper.

Kicking it off with the hand-sewn fur lined leather glove.
Utilising the classic glove design, these have a side vent and three hand-sewn points on the front, coming in 100 per cent leather.

The same fur lined hand-sewn comes in lambskin, which really highlights the sewn detailing. It also has a palm vent along with the three points on the front.
Then you have the deerskins, which are a more workman like glove, with fastened wrist strap with 100 per cent cashmere lining, for an extra treat.
These come in brown or black.

The brown leather, which comes in black as well, is once again a classic design with palm vent and no lining.

Penfield offer some quality entrants with the delicious knitted Glendo gloves with suede palm. This chunky rub knit glove provides amazing warmth.
The sheepskin Pennystone tan glove is a fur lined feast, with beautiful detailed stitching and as with the Glendo gloves, which comes in blue and grey, sport a woven Penfield tab on the hem.

Landing on my desk without too much information, but obviously worth a mention the uber warm looking Canada Goose Lodge black gloves with wrist adjusters, clips to attach to your coat and the CG logo on the right glove, these look amazing. Keep checking the site for their arrival.
These 'puffa' style ribbed finish gloves look warm and are certain to be.

Hasta Victoria la Siempre
