Today we will be talking about mens leather gloves. Leather is a popular choice for gloves as it is stylish, and provides good protection against the elements. Depending on your budget, you can find gloves in a variety of styles and prices. Some are hand made, and the cheaper models are machine made. Leather gloves come in the five finger variety, unlike mittens which have a divided section for your fingers and thumb. You will find some are designed to be a small fit to aid in manoeuvrability, whereas others are quite bulky to keep out the worst winter chill. With the smaller fits you can easily do things you couldn’t do with bulkier gloves such as grab your wallet, write with a pen, or use an atm. Other features you might find in leather gloves are vents. You wont find these in winter gloves, but in summer ones so you hands don’t overheat in the warmer weather.
What different linings will you find?
Most winter style gloves and mittens come with linings. Some linings are synthetic, and others are made from natural materials. Cashmere lined gloves are very warm, although quite costly. Rabbit lined gloves also are very warm, although like cashmere they are a bit pricier than standard gloves. For the most part any leather glove with a lining should keep your hands warm in the colder weather. For warmer weather you can find gloves without linings.
These keep your hands cool, and make sure you look stylish in the warmer months. They are also great as driving gloves, and make sure you look your best in your car! If you want a multi purpose pair of gloves, you could always buy a unlined pair, then buy removable lining for them at a later stage. When the cold weather comes in you insert the hand lining – this way you don’t need two pairs of gloves for the different seasons.
What kind of leather are the made out of?
The leather comes from many different sources, and the price can vary quite greatly between them. Standard gloves are made from cow leather. Designer mens leather gloves come in variety of different leather types including crocodile, ostrich and deer. Deerskin leather is one of the toughest forms of leather you can buy, so if you are looking for a pair of gloves to last you for many years, look out for the deer ones.

You will find them in many different colors and shades, but black still seems to remain a firm favorite. Brown is also quite popular as it goes with quite a few different garments with ease.
