Black leather gloves are a stylish and practical part of the winter wardrobe. They can be worn with a hat and overcoat over a suit or with a casual leather car coat as James Bond does in The Living Daylights. Bond’s gloves are wrist-length and have three rows of stitching on the back of the hand to shape the glove to the hand. Leather gloves for winter are typically lined in wool or cashmere, which keeps the hand warm but also breathes. Avoid gloves lined in synthetics because even though they can keep your hands very warm, they don’t breathe and will make your hands sweat. Bond matches the black gloves to his black shoes.
Some people avoid black leather gloves because of their association with criminals. People in movies and television always wear black gloves when their going to break in to a house or office or for committing a murder. But Bond simply wears black gloves because they go with his outfit.
