Last winter, I did something a lot of us do: I left a glove in a taxi, rendering the other glove useless. Fortunately, winter was waning when I committed this act of omission, and I was able to survive what little remained of the winter without investing in another pair.
Winter is here again. Since I get around on my bicycle, I was in desperate need of a simple, handsome, warm, reasonable and well-made pair of leather gloves. This year, J.Crew had the solution with a classic, cashmere-lined pair. No snaps, zippers, velcro or buckles to fasten them. Just simple slip-ons.
Available in black, brown or saddle, they go for $88. Now I just have to make sure I don’t lose them.
