Fingerless Knit Gloves, Whether You Prefer Leather Or Not

Even though I’m more a fan of the leather driving glove, I can’t deny the raging trend hotness that are knit fingerless gloves this Fall season. Since leather versions have been completely edged out in all retail environments by their knit cousins (in Vancouver at least) it isn’t a tough job to find some new accessory additions.

The Holt Renfew flagship store has a handful of choices; though pricing ranges from $100-250+. The downtown Winners had a very sparse selection of fingerless gloves; things were mainly very safe looking full-fingered designs. Besides vintage, your best bet for new gloves will be American Apparel’s version ($14), or Urban Outfitters’ selections ($10-20).

If you do a Robson Street run (I pity you), then I would suggest hitting up the old faithfuls (Tommy Hilfiger, Aldo Accessories, the Gap, French Connection, Banana Republic, BCBG, Club Monaco, Esprit and Mexx).

Good luck, shoppers.

Finding United Colours of Benetton while doing a “Robson Street” run would be as likely as finding a three dollar bill. Benetton hasn’t been on Robson Street for over ten years now.

Hah! Boy is my face red. The map I used must have been waaay out of date (I was wondering how I’d missed it till now).

Thanks for the fashion coverage of the Vancouver scene; again, I think it would be great if more local stores and businesses were emphasized.

One scoop: you may want to reconsider your Urban Outfitter recommendations. The owner is a financial supporter of the American Republican party (talk about your disconnect!), and its young clientele may be too indifferent or too ignorant to know.

If knowing where one spends their money is important, young people with liberal leanings may find it surprising as to who is profiting from the sale of kaffiyehs and cord jeans.
