The cotton dress glove enjoys a special place in the heart of the glovemaker and it is the bedrock of the Cornelia James Collection. When Cornelia started the business in 1946 the dress glove was on every hand and our aim is to put it right back there, where it belongs.
We offer two types of dress gloves - Swiss Cotton Jersey and English Sueded Cotton. The Swiss Cotton has all the qualities that we, in England, would characterise as ‘continental’ - smooth, soft and sophisticated - whereas the English Sueded Cotton is robust, traditional and classic. The Swiss Cotton is a slightly lighter weight - definitely a summer glove - and the English Sueded is slightly heavier, slightly more formal dress glove - a proper ‘three season’ glove.
