It might seem hard to justify spending £130 on something so small, but like posh knickers and diamonds, good things come in small packages. The Rapha Women’s GT Gloves justify their price tag by being handmade in England using African Hair Sheep leather (prized for its strength and elasticity, FYI) – it also naturally wicks sweat away and is breathable. Padding is targeted mainly around the thumb and forefinger (based on army marksman gloves), they’re fastened with a Velcro cuff and are styled likes the finest driving gloves of old for some full-on glamour.
Price £130: Available from Rapha.
