Anyone have any recommendations for a good set of driving gloves? The pair I have now are ones I use to ride motorcycle and they're fine but I want something a little classier for in the car/going out. Not looking to spend a fortune but I want something that's a quality glove.

I think unless your steve mcqueen its pretty tough to pull off driving gloves.
or Alex Roy or Jason statham, :p

You can buy them off the web only problem is you wanna try them before you buy. You could go to a store that sells leather clothing or a suit store, those gloves i've seen a few times in the "fancy" stores.

:lol: I like to think I'm Steve McQueen. But in all seriousness though I have a solid metal shifter and the damn thing gets freezing in the winter and hot enough to actually cause minor burns in the summer if you leave the car in the sun too long. And you're right MBZGuy, they are something you'd want to try on first. Might look around Toronto when I'm there next.

Alpinestars makes nice gloves. I got a pair as a gift, very nice. Here in Ca, the summers are pretty hot- sweaty palms and a big, slick wood steering wheel make it hard to drive lol.

I bet A nice shifter is the same price of said nice gloves...just saying.

Driving gloves are for sexy little upper middle class trophy wifes in a preowned boxster or slk350 or for bank job getaway drivers. I hated wearing gloves even in the race cars.

I love the idea of driving gloves... I can see why you may want them for a weekend (or less frequent car) with alcantara steering wheel but... Saw someone using them the other day and just thought "Tw*t"... bit hypocritical considering I like the idea! But won't be buying any :p

There's a few people here hating on the gloves, but I think they have their place... In a vintage Jag or 300SL or something along those lines (not a honda civic). That being said sparco or alpinestars make decent gloves for racing.

I know this is a very old thread - but should anyone still considering to buy a driving gloves, and want to do it with style :
- Get from Naples or Florence glove makers, they make really good gloves. From designer, only Hermes and Trussardi that worth the penny for their gloves quality (not just driving, but gloves in general)
