I always though fingerless gloves were the preserve of the homeless and grubby old men digging up potatoes on allotments, but it appears that they’ve made it on to the autumn/winter season’s must have list. Although I still reckon they’re slightly pointless (aren’t the fingers the bits that get most cold?), there are some pretty sweet examples of gloves sans digits. For this season’s top five, keep reading after the jump.
More fingerless gloves on Brandish:
Fingerless gloves by Raf Simons and Topman Ute Ploier
ASOS (£10) – Almost like wrist warmers, these gloves don’t even have "half-fingers". Really liking the little thumb hole.
Topman (£6) – Classic fingerless gloves with stripy, Beetlejuice styling.
Blacks (£14) – For the serious outdoorsman, Blacks’ thermal gloves have sticky pads for extra grip. Great for precision snowball making.
Burton (£5) – Fantastic if you’re on a budget, these gloves from Burton have that classic "Compo" look.
Martin Margiela (£75) – Okay, technically they’re not "fingerless" gloves, but neither do they have fingers. There is a subtle difference, trust me. And yes, they are £75. But I like them, and this is my article. So there.
