Banana Republic's Stitched leather gloves - Must Shop

I have been saying for the last couple years (read forever) that I want a nice, sleek pair of leather gloves to wear during the cooler weather months. I often have to walk a couple blocks from my car to my office, which makes it extra important to bundle up and block out all those chilly, winter gusts of air. It also helps that I think sleek, winter gloves are super-chic!

Banana Republic - Stitched leather gloves - $69

I really like the leather gloves I spotted recently (online) at Banana Republic. I even like this orange-y color, which is weird b/c usually I like to get my first of a staple in a classic color...then get something fun next time around. You know, I just realized I've been saving my BR reward cards for the last year or so, so I bet I could snag a pair for "free." Nice!

What do you think about winter gloves? Do you have any fave brands for gloves?

Has to be the softest leather, lined in cashmere. I just bought the most gorgeous pair with little buttons on the side. I could kick myself for cutting out the tags, so I can't tell you who they were by. (I'm one of those people who can't stand a tag scratching them for a second, not even inside a glove). I like the BR ones, but the color would be difficult unless one's wardrobe has plenty of neutrals and earth tones. It's pretty much black gloves or primary colors like red or blue for me.

Danier is amazing, Fab Broke is right! Maybe it's a Canadian thing?

I'm investing in some leather ones too this season, but their price tag keeps me putting it off. At least, the Coach ones I have been eyeing. There are alternatives in the form of Aldo leather gloves which are only $20, my only problem is my urge of matching my gloves to either my bag or scarf...or shoes. Maybe I can get two colours at that price?

www.anedoti.com has the largest collection on-line and specialise in bold colours and amazing designs. They are all made in Italy. They ship around the world in beautiful gift boxes. I received one for Xmas last year and gave a few myself to friends and family. I love the fuchsia and black two toned suede ones. I might have to get that pair.
