NexusVII and Dents enter their third collaborative season, this time delivering another leather glove that’s more mature and luxurious than the two before it. That’s pretty difficult to fathom but the black or brown body blended with camel on the thumb and the strap really does it. Made of smooth Sheepskin lined with high quality heat retaining wool holds red name tab for the proof of the partnership.
From Dents comes these suede lined leather driving gloves, a lightweight winter essential. The elasticated, snap fastening cuff features a hint of red trim while there’s perforation throughout the gloves. The black finish is a bit more subdued than a brown or cognac variety so it will be a bit more versatile and conservative should the occasion call for it.
The short wrist glove is undoubtedly one of our favorite hand protectors for the winter thus far. Churchill’s racer glove happens to feature a cuff that stops at the bend in your wrist and is handcrafted from premium deerskin. No need to tuck it inside the cuff on your jacket as these beauties sit quite comfortably around it. Plus, the cognac finish gives the gloves some versatility and virtually no limit as to when you can wear them or with what.
They’re heavy enough for maximum protection yet light enough to feel the grips. The vented gloves also feature a keystone thumb double stitched around the base of the thumb for added wear and the inseams are sewn flat for added comfort.
Rapha is well known for its cycling heritage and with any travels, gearing up for the winter is essential. The English brand’s leather Town Gloves are handcrafted in England and are cut from the finest goatskin leather. They’re built to last and are fitted with marksman-grade palm padding for max grip.

The best way to describe Rick Owens is glamour meets grunge. Sometimes labeled a Goth, Rick Owens has never listened to critics, instead creatin his own mold. “My look is about an appreciation of teenage angst without actually having the angst,” he says with pure confidence.
The Merin Wool fingerless gloves are filled with confidence. The connector straps give it a more grunge feel while the material and quality are the reason for price tag.

We talked briefly about the collaboration Rag & Bone’s released with Dents, the luxe glove maker to the Queen of England. That’s one heck of a resume. Dents has been in the glove-making industry since the late 1700s and their longevity is a testament to their quality and comfort.
This winter, Dents has released a few pieces that will make any man feel like it’s not snowing around him. The first pair is 100% leather on the outside and are lined with 100% wool, while the second pair is also in a 100% leather shell but lined with cashmere. The third pair below is a pair of Dents contrast leather driving gloves. Check out the images below.
