driving gloves quest: Audi vs. BMW vs Porsche

Well i bought some superb Dunhill driving gloves last year, however i lost one of them; a true tragedy in my petrolhead bubbleworld.

So about6 months ago, being the Audi fanboy i am; i ordered a pair of Audi driving gloves through the Audi Collection.  I really like them.  Very soft and well made.  $49.00

For you BMW fanboys, BMW is selling driving gloves as well, through their BMW Lifestyle section.  They look pretty good.  $40.00

Porsche Design has also come out with a set of driving gloves; they are clearly the flashiest and pose-y out of the bunch…but they look pretty good.  $190.00

    Nice, racing equipment marques like OMP or Alpinestars have collections of retro-racing suits, helmets, and gloves (well, the gloves are not so retro in every term, and not even racing, but there is no such a category for them). GT2i has their own classic/vintage shop, you can check it out here, full of awesomness in my opinion (french, but it’s not hard to navigate, if it is you can Google Translate): http://www.gt2i-classic.com
    However, I will stay at my good old “Pécsi kesztyű”, quality hand-made hungarian product 🙂

      thanks for the link, man. the site looks good. i tried to use google navigate, however it screwed up the site for me and i couldn’t find any gloves!

        Well, it’s under the “Equipement pilote” (driver equipments) menu in the “Gants pilote” (gloves) point. Yeah google translate ruined it for me too, didn’t tried it before linking, sorry.

    Who started the whole knuckle-hole thing? It is so cliched.

      it’s so much better! works well for all seasons..keeps the hand cool and relaxed…..i would never wear closed driving gloves in the autumn, spring, or summer….these are very thin leather…..very comfortable.

    • Feketelaszlo says:

      Sure, for racing purposes you can’t use a knuckle-holed glove, but for normal driving it’s much more better, your hand can breath through it (no, they don’t use knuckle holes because of the style or design). Some say a pair of driving gloves is must have if your car has wooden-steering wheel or if you have sporty-driving style (but if you are willing to sell your car you can put a pair of gloves on the dashboard, where it’s dirty, off-color, or broken, it will attract buyers).
