In the formative years of motor racing, no gentlemen would be caught dead in his automobile without his leather helmet, goggles and trusty driving gloves. Fortunately, companies that still produce these items still exist and as the above pictured gloves attest, they haven’t lost an ounce of style over the passing decades.
These driving gloves are made from Nappa glove leather and are stitched by hand in Britain, they’re available from Aspinal for £89.00 here.
