Who makes the best driving gloves

Google Pamela Woods Gloves in England. I had a pair of black leather gloves custom made last year. They're great! They really fit like a glove. She can custom-make any glove you want. She uses Etiopian sheep skin, the best glove leather available.

These are Bionic gloves by Louisville. I had a chance to try these gloves out before they came out in Louisville, KY with my baseball team. The gloves are very comfortable and made really well. They aren't really trendy or anything but they are good quality and they have a good fit.

Who or what?

Peccary is not a maker but a leather made from wild pig of the south western US. If wearing pigskin is not in conflict with your religion, it is certainly a good leather. But them peccaries ain't making no gloves voluntarily, I assure you:icon_smile_big:

It looks like the Bugatti is Grandoe's driving glove:

Since it appears to be "one size fits all" it will be a little bulky on a smaller hand and most likely too tight on a larger. Not a very good alternative, I shouldn't think.

I didn't see any mens gloves on the Pamela Woods site. The driving glove she showed probably could be adapted for a man's style and size, which would more than likely run a bit more than the 95 GBP ($137 US), plus shipping from UK (!):

The Bionics looked pretty good, but they are not the "traditional" motoring glove. Here's Wheelskins, which i have not tried but are, according to them, the "world's finest" in three colors of deerskin at just $56 the pair:

I completely agree that the Bionic are not traditional, I would not want to wear them while motoring in a classic Mini, Jag or Triumph. But if your objective is to get a good quality glove for serious driving and not just motoring around give them a look. I saw some that were really nice, tan leather on the palm and a web stitching of cream fabric on the back of the hand. Very traditional and would look good in your DB5. Heres the string back driving gloves
