You’re suited up and about to step out in a jacket/hat/scarf combo that don’t mess around (like one of these). It’s blisteringly cold but you don’t want to screw up your look with a thick pair of mittens that could pass for Mom’s old potholders. How can you avoid frostbite while staying style savvy? Here are our top five choices for keeping your hands warm in any situation this winter.
These touchscreen-friendly gloves from Pengallan can really come in handy when you need to get some work done on your way to work (or if you want to send a booty call text during your evening commute). To use your touchscreen, just flip back the finger on these kid leather (made from the extremely soft skin of a goat or lamb) gloves, and get digital without freezing your digits off.
Back in the day, dashing men wore brighter colored gloves like these when they stepped out. Follow suit and slip on these yellow leather beauties when you want to make a statement (or, if you’re a dandy, wear them on the daily). These are made in Peru with baby alpaca lining that is seven times warmer than cashmere (and infinitely cooler than Thinsulate). That’s hot.
For the dapper man in the milder locale, these brown leather gloves with perforation along the fingers and palms are the perfect way to keep your hands warm in cold, but not exactly “frigid” temps. The knitted cotton backs add a unique look to these drivers that can help show off your sensitive side while you haul ass down the highway.
Speaking of hauling ass, the metal zipper on the back of these gloves is straight Sons of Anarchy. We suggest dressing these bad boys up, though. The cashmere lining and suede thumbs make these more like something Harvey might wear on Suits.
There comes a time in a man’s life when he takes off his finely crafted custom suit (gasp!) and settles in for some winter fun (i.e. skiing, snowball fights, competing in the Iditarod or scaling The Wall). That’s when you trade in the leather for a pair of wind-resistant, water-repellant, yet breathable performance gloves.
With this collection of gloves, you’ll wish it was cold all year long. Now the only question is: Which pair will you rock this winter? Leave a comment below.
