About Those Gloves...

...that I showcased in the collage from my last post.

They are deadstock vintage deerskin dress gloves in a relatively large size. Never been worn, found in the original box.

They have wonderful texture to them and the leather is just the way it was the day these were made. And who really knows when that day was; could be anywhere from the 1920s through the 1940s, most likely somewhere in the middle as glove wearing eventually tapered off as the decades clicked by.

Vintage gloves like these are quite rare nowadays and these examples let's us see something that few have a chance to savor anymore, for times have changed and quality leather dress gloves are no longer in vogue. But they have permanent style.

Hate to say it, but it was really the pipe that caught my eye in the montage, though the ties are outstanding, too.

That's my grandpa's pipe. I have two others. Use them every once in a long while, too.

That's really nice. I asked my father for his old pipes, and since he expressed no interest in keeping them, I got quite a few. I'll have to get the rest the next time I visit. I, too, use them on occasion. I've actually come to prefer a pipe to a cigar.

BTW, those are really nice gloves.

Interesting. they look just like peccary to me rather than deerskin.
