We are very excited to present our collaboration with French bespoke glove maker Lavabre Cadet and Simon Crompton.
At our Clifford Street shop a selection of gloves will be available made-to-order, alongside samples of the leathers and sizes. For those not able to make it to our Haberdashery, you can order them online through the Permanent Style shop.
There are three leathers available for this collaboration that cover a range of price points (all prices ex-VAT):
Goatskin, black or brown: £160
Lambskin, black or brown: £250
Peccary, black, brown, cork or grey: £320
Once you’ve picked your leather, there are few other options.
You can have them lined in black or white silk, or in black or beige cashmere. The peccary can also be unlined.
The construction can be with the seams turned inwards (neater and dressier) or outwards (thicker and more masculine). If outwards, they can be handstitched, for an extra £45.
And finally, you can add up to four initials, on the inside of the bottom of the glove, for £22 (per glove).
If you would like to order online please email firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm your details and receive information on measuring. Payment will still be through the Permanent Style shop site.
Delivery for the gloves is three weeks from ordering.
