In this video talk about how to wear and care for your leather gloves.
Let's talk about how to wear gloves. Usually, you put them on when you're at home and ideally, you want to make sure that you are gentle with your gloves. Here's how you do it.
First, just put in your hand and pull gently at the cuff. Second, you go with your finger in between the quirks to get it all in and pull once more so they're tight. Last but not the least, you button the button. In order to maintain your gloves, make sure that they last for a long time, this is what you should not do. Most people simply pull their glove with one finger and that's all they do. This puts a lot of strain on your glove and over time, it will be more wrinkly and a single rip and it's not good for the leather.
Instead, what you should do first, you should open the button. Second, you should gently pull on each finger just a little bit so you loosen the glove. Then, take all the fingers and pull at the same time, that puts less strain on your gloves and you'll be able to wear them for much longer. Once you've pulled the gloves off your hand, make sure that everything is flat and store them laying flat on top of each other. Do not crumple them, it's terrible for your gloves and they will be bad over time. Always make sure they're in shape and you store them flat.
When you have white gloves or white colored gloves, make sure not to put them right next to other gloves of very dark colors because some of the colors may rub off and ruin your leather colored gloves. When you're outside wearing your gloves and you're meeting somebody, it's common customs to remove the glove. Traditionally, it was also okay to leave the glove on but I think in this day and age, it's better to remove the glove to shake hands and put the glove back on.
In terms of glove colors and how to combine them, I've found that you actually don't need a lot of colors even though it's really fun to have more of them. The basic four colors I would recommend to every gentleman are these four; burgundy, gray, a tan and a chamois yellow. Between those four colors, you can basically combine anything in your wardrobe. No matter whether it's black, navy, charcoal, grey, green, brown, orange, yellow, you name it, you will have one pair of gloves that will work with it.
Of course, once you have these four colors, you always want to try something else. For example, we have a petrol blue and we're working on new colors as well so, stay tuned and there are always more things you can add to your wardrobe to get those extra 5% that make you look particularly dapper and elegant. If you want to buy your first pair of gloves and you're not sure what color, I suggest you either go with grey or chamois yellow. Grey is preferable if you have an office job, you wear a lot of suits and it's just something that works well with classic, professional outfits.Chamois yellow on the other hand is fantastic if you are in a more casual profession where the dress code is more relaxed. That being said, I could also wear the coat I'm wearing right now or a grey overcoat with chamois yellow.
For the second pair of gloves, I recommend you go with the burgundy color. Burgundy is great because it's not as bright as chamois yellow but it's a little more subtle and it still works with a lot of colors. I assure you, you'll get compliments once you wear grey, yellow, petrol blue or burgundy gloves because they are unusual but they work with your outfits and they go with so many things and people notice it and they will be jealous. If you have a pair of peccary leather gloves, chances are, your lining will wear out before the leather wears out so if that happens, you can have the lining. In case your gloves ever get wet or they have water stains, what you do is make the entire glove wet and you let them air dry. Not on the radiator, not with a hair dryer, just air dry, flat, pull them to shape, let them dry and once the glove is dry, it's going to feel much harder but if you wear them a couple of times, it'll be soft again. In order to make them wet, just gently apply the water with your hand, don't dunk them into the water and never wring your gloves, that's going to be bad for your leather, just treat them very gently.
