Hands Down: The Best Men’s Leather Gloves from Hestra

hestra gloves, men's leather gloves
Tired of frozen fingers, red and raw from the cold? Feeling a little feisty and want to challenge someone to a duel? A good pair of gloves can help with both problems.

Unlike Homer Simpson, you probably shouldn’t go around challenging people to duels by slapping them in the face with a fine leather glove. But, if you absolutely must “demand satisfaction” in the form of a glove slap, you might as well use the best gloves possible.

Hestra, the venerable glove maker that’s been around since the 1930’s sells some of the finest looking men’s leather gloves on the market today. Hand sewn in Sweden, Hestra’s family owned business provides top-quality gloves that will last a lifetime. Hestra uses only the finest leathers, along with a drum-dyed process that allows the leather to retain its natural features while acquiring a warm hue. With three categories in their “Dress” collection of gloves (Table Cut, Collection, and Sport), we’ve picked our favorites from each.

While these gloves might seem a tad on the expensive side, once you realize that this is an investment piece that you’ll find warming your hands for years, you’ll understand the overall savings.
