Beautifully cut, colorful gloves were once a defining mark of a gentleman, and at Fort Belvedere, you can revive this stylish sartorial tradition with insulating gloves to keep your hands warm, sophisticated formal gloves for fancy occasions, and even dashing driving gloves!
Explore our extensive selection of handmade dress gloves in classic, elegant colors that range from refined grey to exuberant red. Our lamb nappa is sourced from Italy, and our peccary leather comes directly from Peru and is tanned in Germany before being assembled by artisanal Hungarian glove makers who have been perfecting their craft for centuries.
To help you find your glove size, we have created an in-depth video that shows exactly how to measure your hand and employ our size chart to determine your perfect fit every time.
As implied by the expression “to fit like a glove,” dress gloves were traditionally worn with a relatively tight fit to appear as trim and elegant as possible. Therefore, if you are in-between sizes, we generally recommend sizing down: as the leather stretches, it will conform perfectly to your hand’s dimensions.
Resplendent in dignified white, these formal gloves are intended to be worn with formal
ensembles. Such occasions include evening events like those in a Black Tie tuxedo or dinner jacket or White Tie in a tailcoat or day events that call for Morning Dress or a stately stroller suit.
These gloves can also add considerable formality to the dressiest of business suits, such as a three-piece suit in charcoal or navy. For greater visual interest and to be in keeping with the conventions of Classic Menswear, we encourage you to wear these white gloves only on formal occasions. For outfits that are lower on the formality scale, we suggest selecting a different pair of lined or unlined gloves that are more unique and colorful.
Superlative Suede. The unique, velvety texture of suede is at its best when made from superior animal skins, and that is exactly what we have achieved with these gloves. We searched the globe for the softest and most flexible lamb nappa leather, and we found it in Ethiopia and South Africa. Men’s suede gloves are difficult enough to find nowadays, but considering that these also come in vibrant classic colors, we rightfully consider these gloves essentially one-of-a-kind.
●Hand-Sewn. Sewn by Hungarian artisans who can only be described as glove-making virtuosos, these gloves are truly a work of art. Each pair takes hours to complete, and the clear pride that our craftsmen feel in their work is evident from the attentive detail that they lavish on every step of the sewing process.
●Button Closure. To ensure a good seal at the throat and a close fit overall, gloves historically featured a button closure at the wrist. As a cost-saving measure, this functionality has practically disappeared, but at Fort Belvedere, we are proud to reintroduce this important feature. Wrapped in leather, our button closure ensures that the glove sits tightly on the wrist so it lies neatly under your sleeve. For a dash of sprezzatura charm, however, you can leave your gloves nonchalantly unbuttoned for a more rakish appearance.
●Cashmere Lined. Alpaca and cashmere are the two best linings for gloves, the former being generally warmer and the latter being generally softer. Because these are dress-day gloves not necessarily intended for extreme temperatures, we decided to line this pair in deliciously soft cashmere. Left in its natural mottled oatmeal color, this cashmere was spun, plied, finished, and knitted in Italy according to our exacting standards to ensure a proper fit and maximum comfort.
Be aware that, unlike nappa leather, the pores of suede leather are rougher so oils from your fingers will be absorbed more quickly. Suede will also develop a beautiful patina over time, which will enrich the color and is a sign of elegant sophistication.
● After wearing your gloves, store them flat with the fingers stretched out. Never leave your gloves balled up or crumpled.
● If a portion of your gloves gets wet, it may develop water stains. If an area of your gloves is darker than the rest after getting wet and then drying, wet the entire glove with clean water and then allow it to air dry for several days. The gloves will then be returned to their uniform appearance.
● In most cases, your gloves can be washed with just clean water. If you want to use a cleanser, we suggest a dedicated glove-leather cleaner or a very mild product like baby soap or shampoo. Never use artificial cleaners.
● Never wring your gloves dry. Instead, lay the gloves flat with the fingers extended on a towel and layer another towel on top to remove excess water. Then, air dry the gloves for a few days, keeping them clear of artificial heat sources like a radiator, hair dryers, and the like, because they could discolor or damage the leather.
● Note that after cleaning, your gloves may feel slightly stiff. Simply wear them regularly to break them back in and they shall return to their previous softness.
