I'm a hat girl. I love vintage hats and have a sizable collection, mostly from the 40s. They come in all shapes, sizes and colors.
I do not, however, own a pair of gloves to go with those fabulous hats.
I do own a pair for my biking needs.
Because I started out as a mountain biker, I grew on the tendency to wear full-finger gloves and of course, I looked for a pair that was aesthetically pleasing.
Hence the SixSixOne Comp Gloves, shown in a previous post. The problem with these gloves is that after about three months, the logo on the finger tips and on the back of the hand started falling off.
I still wear them but they now have holes in the finger tips.
Time for a new pair so I went looking again. I'm rather taken to SixSixOne when Thor caught my eye.
Thor is a motocross company and not a mountain biking one but the gloves continue in being pretty sweet.
Case in point: the Thor Core Gloves. Here is a pic:
The color combinations are very much in keeping with the types of outfits the motocross bikers wear. According to other reviews (for I have yet to get my pair), these are thinner than what is normally used.
Which would be ideal for roadies.
And a pair which would probably be too thick (but then again, do I care?) but has an incredible stylistic line to them are the 2009 Thor Static Gloves for Women.
