Companion Piece: Aspinal Driving Gloves

Gloves

The original intent of the driving glove—to keep pioneering motorists’ hands clean, warm, and dry in the first automobiles—has all but vanished thanks to modern-day innovations. Still, they recall a time when a car ride was a recreational pleasure, not an everyday chore. Buttery leather gloves are one way to add some glamour to the otherwise tedious task of getting from A to B. British craftsmen Aspinal of London still offer a healthy variety, from a traditional, hand-stitched style in napa to a sexier, knucklebaring fingerless pair sewn from deerskin. AspinalOfLondon.com,$129–$145
