Alas, I have a problem, and not just the compulsion, which compounds the issue. They must be slender, and dexterous, and wonderful. So I got another pair, then they weren't enough so I began desperately searching for more, always more, ever more. I have short,fat, bloaty fingers, and everyone who models gloves or is used as a template when designing gloves have obviously got beautiful long, Rachmaninov-loving piano-concerto-playing glories.

For regular work duties, I use a variety of FG brand gloves from Home Depot.

I have some Carhartt microsuede lined gloves to drive my truck during the cold mornings.

Hello my name is Humphrey and I have a glove fetish. It started out with wearing gloves to work in London and Scotland, my Australian hands were crying out, begging for me to do something to relieve them from the numbness they had come to feel, so I got an innocent pair of calf skin casual wear gloves. Sausage fingers but not the thin sort of sausage that sits daintily on a hot plate and slips effortlessly into a piece of bread at the BBQ.

Its getting cold but my hands are comfortable even without the grip heaters on. Though not fancy like the ones you describe above, I have several pair that I rotate for different purposes.

Women have hit on me in bars, presumably because of the otherwise shapeliness of my arms, until I pull my hands out of my pockets to pay for a round of drinks, at which point they clutch the sides of their heads and collapse into poor little compressed balls of woe and grief on the bar room floor, saying "Don't touch me with those hideous things" over and over and over (and over) again whilst dribbling and generally making a fairly pronounced spectacle of themselves and my hands.

Mine look like an old arthritic gorilla had his hands amputated, run over by a Land Rover (or Land Cruiser if that is more your game) a few times, gnawed at by the flea bitten village dogs, then transplanted onto the ends ofmy otherwise quite masculine and shapely arms. Now if only someone were to start on for woollen trekking socks, cos let me tell you about my feet! Extended Cab, 3RZ, AT, SAC, 5.29 gears, ARB FR/RR locker, and a few other mods...

I play with ice tools with both gloves and both are still a great fit. I have three pair of trekking gloves for walking on glaciers and doing the odd bit of climbing and I live in Australia. I have a set of custom Sidi gloves in a storage box somewhere, that cost a damn sight more than 9...

So I carry both gloves around the store for a while. I look at some daypacks because Debbie will need a new one for a trip planned for next year. I have three pairs of social gloves and I live in Australia again where the gloves would just be useful to stop sweat pooling on the table in the pub. Very abrasion resistant if thats important to you (ask me how I know). Now if only someone were to start on for woollen trekking socks, cos let me tell you about my feet! Try these guys, I have a set very similar to these that they custom made, though I can't remember the price.

One and two piece suits in kangaroo leather are generally the same as normal leather. Sausage fingers – but not the thin sort of sausage that sits daintily on a hot plate and slips effortlessly into a piece of bread at the BBQ.

I have gloves in every leather to have once roamed the earth. The Italian shops do the best work, I was fortunate that I met some Italians who had custom gloves made, so they could do the translation.

In her spanking-clean, detached house on a quiet street, Jill-Anne seems like a typical suburban housewife, with too much to do and too little time: school sports-team uniforms are drying on the line outside and need ironing, her mum phones to chat, Jill-Anne's got to bake a cake, and there are groceries to put away. Simpson has arrived without an appointment, but he has a spare half hour and requests time with "Sandra." Who is this "Sandra," and what does she have to do with Jill-Anne, the telephone, the iron, the cake, an armoire, the uniforms, and rubber gloves?
