Moustache gloves. You heard me, moustache gloves. Just in case this hasn’t sunk in: MOUSTACHE GLOVES! In a week of strange pairings Jack Spade has knocked up these eccentric hand socks for the Colette x Gap pop up store in New York. Other than they are available in three colours there’s not a great deal I can say about these because lets face it the pictures speak for themselves, more of which are available over at highsnobiety.com.
