gloves: fashion & function

A TIDBIT FOR TUESDAY from Awl Made Here:
Since ancient times, “gloves have been worn both as a protection against the elements and as a sign of social standing (a signal that the person wearing them was too sophisticated to risk contamination from the world of ordinary people)…Poor people used the skins of rabbits or deer to create warm winter gloves, leaving the skin on the inside for additional warmth, whilst the rich demonstrated their wealth and taste by wearing finely made gloves of the softest and thinnest leather. Those two functions of the glove, utility and fashion, remain with us today, typified by the sheepskin, fur lined glove and the sleek, fitted calf skin glove”
