Louis Charles Men's Gloves/Premium Shearling
The designer is passionate about classic cars and exceptional motorbikes. He has always collected them, hunting for vintage spare parts to repair, participating in races and road trips…
As a driver, he needed gloves but couldn't find the right pair. So he designed his own, inspired by the sixties, and found an exclusive method to apply a patina on the fine glove leather. This technique allows a unique vintage look with a legacy spirit. His friends and relatives were so immediately enthusiastic about his gloves that he decided to develop a whole collection!
These are originally designed as motorcycle gloves but are equally at home for any outdoor activity! We picture them putting logs into the firepit in Steamboat Springs...in premium shearling, leather and fur interplay, long sleeve with accordion pleat, wrist tightening strap and nickel snap button engraved with a phœnix, logo of the house. Hand-built. This model is inspired by the WWII B3 bomber jackets. They are a tribute to the designer's grandfather, Louis Charles Breguet. Engineer and great airman, founder of Air France, he invented the gyroplane (the ancestor of the helicopter). The shearling is skin-tanned to keep the wool on the leather. These gloves do not comply with the new European technical certification standards for motorcycles.
