Dents: Gloves That Make You Say, Wow!

Posted on October 1, 2007 Under Fashion

I’m not a big glove person, or at least I didn’t think I was until I slipped my hands into a set of Dent’s cashmere lined and hand-sewn Peccary Leather gloves. I wasn’t even sure (and am still not) what Oatmeal Scottish cashmere lining is, but I won’t turn my back on that discovery ever again. A family friend introduced me to this classic and historical British brand not too long ago, and as far as I can tell, for such exquisite "best-of" gloves and other fine leather goods go, I don’t see why you’d need to look anywhere else. Dents was founded in 1777 with a genuine family driven story; each glove, scarf and accessory was made in a factory in Worcester and London — 133 craftsmen and women were engaged to hand cut and stitch every product. Every item went through this intense, precise and painstaking process "“ the same process used today 230 years later. It’s rare for me to wear something quite this luxurious — but gloves this fine are happily a new exception since it’s getting mighty cold here in London. Good timing, and perfecto for the cold days ahead!
