I’m a real fan of gloves, probably because my hands seem to always be cold. I have dozens of pairs in my collection, but I also buy lots of gloves for me to wear.
If you’ve never taken a good look at the variety of vintage gloves available, spend a few minutes (or hours) on ebay and etsy. Go slowly, and look carefully, and among all the early 1960s white cotton and nylon shortie gloves, you will find some real treasures: unbelievably soft leathers and suedes, printed leathers, embroidered silks, cashmere lined. Just don’t settle for the ordinary when there is such an interesting selection.
Another good place to look for vintage gloves is the local antique mall. Gloves seem to be like hats – you can always spot them in mall booths, even when there are no other clothes in sight. Odd.
