Wardrobe Essentials: Gloves

The need to stay exceptionally warm in these months is typically overlooked until the hands go ice cold and somehow helplessly useless; its strange what the bitter cold does to the body. And there are only so many things a man can do with his hands in his pockets.
Thank goodness for those hand-dandy gloves (pun intended) that stave the cold off of your skin and your fingers fully functional. The options are certainly out there, but regardless of a man's pay-grade, they should be investing in a good pair of gloves, not throwing money at a new pair every year. Super soft cashmere linings and supple leathers top the list of utter luxury in the glove market, so aim high. The leather will protect your hands and develop a vintage patina over the years while the cashmere lining keeps them nice and cozy; relining a pair of gloves isn't ideal, but certainly doable. Classic colors and classic constructions will provide a timelessness that will have these gloves fully functional in your wardrobe for as long as you don't lose track of them.
