The uber chic Autodromo Stringback Driving Gloves
The people at Autodromo have a weak spot – not to mention affinity – for all things automotive. I guess driving gloves are a part of that universe, although the last person I’ve seen use a pair was Jason Statham, as he was tearing a little French town apart while playing the Transporter.
Still, no one can deny that a pair of driving gloves adds a touch of panache to any classic car owners, and the Stringback gloves really hit the spot.
These things will grab your attention instantly and as stylish as they are, they’re also really functional. Back in the 1950s and 1960s, race car drivers relied on these stringback gloves to protect their palms from the wooden steering wheels and keep their hands cool and dry during their countryside cruises but now they’re more of a style statement.
Each of the gloves you see here features a 100% cotton crochet back with a short split cuff, meaning that grabbing a pair quickly is easy and will not ruin your day. The gloves are available in five different color options, and retail for $125 through the brand’s website. All you need now is the perfect car.
