When the sun begins to shine and the streets begin to warm up again, those who love to drive and dress with class can rely on an accessory to perfectly match the season: leather driving gloves with a cotton crochet back. A classic style that never looses its refinement and distinctive charm and what we at The Outlierman have reinterpreted through our collection of gloves that celebrate that tradition, a collection rightfully named The Heritage.
The trend of enriching gloves with inserts of different material spread out between the 50’s and 60’s and has stayed around since, fueled by the extreme comfort and functionality of these accessories that also combine aesthetics with performance.
When it comes to driving gloves, the combination of soft lambskin leather and cotton crochet is synonymous with maximum breathability for your skin and an excellent grip on the steering wheel. A unique appeal that combines your passion for style with open air outings, preferably in a classic car with the top down.
Even in the fingerless version, The Heritage driving gloves continue to enhance your driving comfort while also delivering a sophisticated style. The breathability guaranteed by the cotton crochet back is increased by your fingers having freedom of movement and the added fingertip grip, also ideal in situations where one may need to fix a crooked bow tie or wind-blown hair.
Entirely handmade by our master glove makers from Naples, among the best in Italy for producing leather gloves, these driving gloves show their peculiar seam pointing outwards, thus almost entirely eliminating any space between the skin of your hands and the steering wheel. A specific and necessary knowledge that creators of quality gloves have passed down from generation to generation.
The driving gloves from The Heritage collection celebrate classic taste also through the warm and natural tones of the super-soft nappa lambskin in cognac, olive green and crimson. An exploration into male pre-war style and the colors of the interior and exterior of classic cars: refined shades with a timeless charm.
Grand Prix de Monaco Historique, Mille Miglia, Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d’Este… The season of classic car racing is fast approaching in Europe and around the rest of the world, and our steering wheels are already calling for gloves in hands to drive them the only way that a true gentleman knows how: through control and impeccable style!
