Default Driving Gloves

Where might I find pair of leather gloves I see in some of the videos with the wide sleeve protector I can purchase?
Thanks

I like em'. They would likely get you a first in fashion judging. Only problem is they would not go through tech inspection.

If you are driving/operating an open car, motorcycle, steam locomotive or speedster that type might "Look" ok. If a closed car, think you would want to go with soft leather gloves, styled pretty much like what you can still buy.

Do a search of gauntlet glove.

And measure your dominant hand - it's usually a little bigger than the other.

For a cheaper alternative you can look for gauntlet motorcycle gloves. They most often come in black though so don't look like the vintage brown ones.

Edit: Here's some in brown:

Why would you want to wear gloves while driving?

You must have never been around the tea bagger sporty car crowd.
Super Duper calfskin, air foil, pierced back, short finger driving gloves are an absolute required fashion accessory for driving your half million dollar sporty car.
Why should model A people be without this luxury?
