Daytime formal is...

Weddings, Funerals, Christenings, Confirmations, First Communions, Bar Mitzvahs, Vow renewals, Second marriages, Speech Days,Graduations, Passing Out Parades, Ordinations, Investitures, Race weeks, Garden parties and so on and on and on.

The beauty of gloves is in their power to transform. Wear a simple summer dress, add sunglasses and a pair of cotton gloves and - boom - suddenly you’re Jackie Onassis out to lunch.

If you follow convention, the daytime formal glove is cotton, never leather. Leather, unless it’s long, is an outdoor glove, built to protect, and should be taken off indoors. Cotton gloves can be worn any time, any place and only have to be taken off when you are actually eating.

The go-anywhere daytime formal glove is our Regina glove. It’s a classic sueded cotton glove - comfortable to wear year round and it’s cut a little longer in the wrist so that it is perfect with almost any sleeve length or sleeveless. Depending upon what you wear it with, it can be really quite formal or just a little bit formal; a glove of many faces.

If you want to increase the stakes and go ‘full on formal’, Francesca is the glove. Sueded cotton and cut to finish just short of the elbow, this is perfect for pairing with a big hat, if it’s a ‘big hat’ event.

Slightly less formal and definitely a summer glove is Isla. Again, this can be dressed up or down but is always going to look like you cared. Isla is made from a Swiss cotton, lighter in weight than our sueded cotton, and perfect for warmer weather.

There are so many options, so many choices but it is the beauty of gloves that they effortlessly turn any event into an occasion. Do not hesitate to get in touch if we can help with your choices in any way.
