Hermes for Wear-Right Gloves

I’ve had these great gloves for so long that I can’t remember where I got them.  I’m sure it was either an antique store, or maybe a thrift store.  Well, wherever it was, I was sure delighted to look inside and see the label:

Le Gant Hermes, Paris, Wear-Right Exclusive, USA.  For years I thought they were from the 60s because of the color.  The dark stripe is actually a dark charcoal grey, and they just looked mid 60s.  So I was very surprised to find the ad for them in a 1952 Town and Country:

My friend Jonathan of Kickshaw Productions calls this “As seen in” and he has some really wonderful examples of the happy incident on his blog.
