are the most important accessories. They protect
our hands from the peculiarities of national climate
from September till May. Walking with naked hands
is harmful not only for our hands but for the
whole organism. Only few people know that super-cooling
of the hands leads to the cold as much as wet
feet, because hands have a great number of physiologically
active points on the palms.
With the exception of a warming
function the gloves have an aesthetic meaning
and beautify your clothes and other accessories.
It is well-known that the
gloves must correspond in color and style with
a bag and be in harmony with shoes. Your clothes,
accessories and gloves must be in a harmonic unity.
That's why choosing the gloves, pay your attention
not only at their color and quality, but think
if their style matches your clothes.
Gloves are usually standard
in cutting-offs but there are different kinds
- Standard length (a little bit higher of the
- Shortened gloves (to the palm)
- Long (to the elbow or even to the shoulder)
- Mittens (fingers are cut out)
Gloves are made fabrics and
stockinet, but the best material remains natural
The majority of models are
made from sheepskin and sometimes from more expensive
goat or calf leather. Sheepskin is friable and
soft, other kinds of the leather are dense and
elastic. But the ideal leather for this kind of
accessories is kid-skin. It is beautiful thin
leather of a special currying. Models that are
made from micro-fibers and woolen are also very
popular. The less expensive gloves are stretch
gloves from woolen mixture with rabbits down.
But their quality leaves much to be desired. You'll
receive holes, pellets and bad appearance in a

is: if you choose gloves, do not economize. If
you choose between leather and woolen gloves take
leather ones. They are more durable, they look
elegant and solid and they are good for all kinds
of styles: classical and sports style.
Do not buy gloves without trying on even if you
know your size. People have different hands but
the models are cut out on average standard. Never

made from natural leather. Remember that natural
leather is warm and the synthetic is cold.
Sometimes one can meet so
called «speelock» (The lowest level of thick skin
is cut out). Usually its producer is Turkey. Such
gloves are cheap and very rough. They fit the
hands badly and quickly tear to pieces.
They also fake suede by cutting
out the top leather level. This «suede» is very
shaggy. True suede looks like velvet and its pile
is unnoticeable. All the goods from speelock are
not durable in the comparison with «true» leather.
Especially it corresponds to «suede» that tears
in all believable and unbelievable places (stitches,
cut-offs, fingers and palms). The quality of sewing
is also very important.
