Wanted! River Island’s patent and suede mix long gloves


I’m a big fan of bracelet-length sleeves on coats and jackets, but they’re not much use when it’s freezing, so I’m currently on the lookout for a great pair of long gloves to wear with all of my bracelet-length outerwear. This pair from River Island is the first to catch my eye: the mix of patent and suede looks rather glamorous in this picture, but I can’t help but wonder if all that black patent might look a little too "Darth Vader" in person. Anyway, Look loves them (apparently), The Fashion Police loves them (they think), but do you love them?

    But what do you do when you are wearing a long sleeve top under your beautiful bracelet length jacket? Gloves over or under the top?

    They’d be better in a matte leather, and without the weird rivets on the wrist, but they certainly are pretty.

    Try these if the patent is too much
    I got my wife a pair of 8 inch gloves for xmas last year and the quality of leather and fit is outstanding.
    A little expensive but then quality speaks for itself.
