If you’re going to be behind the wheel for any length of time or if you’re planning an assault on a local race track, you need a pair of driving gloves to keep your finger-skin on your hands where it belongs. These particular gloves were the preferred mittens of Sir Stirling Moss and if you click through the below gallery you’ll find pictures of him wearing them at Sebring in 1957, how’s that for period correct?
Available from Suixtil, these gloves have a one-piece leather palm and a breathable-knitted back for ventilation, they retail for $95 USD and they should match your 300SL perfectly.
