The FDA has determined that powdered surgeon’s gloves, powdered patient examination gloves, and absorbable powder for lubricating a surgeon’s glove present an unreasonable and substantial risk of illness or injury and that the risk cannot be corrected or eliminated by labeling or a change in labeling.
Consequently, the FDA is banning these devices.
I noticed that the rule was proposed back in March but it was officially ruled on today and becomes effective on January 18, 2017.
As many already know, the GO Standard Cotton Parade gloves are our most popular white cotton gloves for their high quality, simplicity, and low price. Additionally, we make them in many sizes from toddler children ages (0-3) to Men’s XXL.
Often customers call about sizing questions. To address this issue, we made a chart to help assist in determining which size is best for you. We also added the chart to the product listing to make it more convenient for you.
Is there a difference? The answer is a simple NO!
Frankly speaking, they are the same type of glove. However, on our web site we have two category listings. One for Cell Phone Gloves; and one for Touch Screen Gloves. This simply reflects how long we’ve been around and how long we’ve been selling Cell Phone Gloves.
You see, when we initially introduced Cell Phone Gloves to you back in 2008, there was no such thing as a Touch Screen cell phone. Hence the category name Cell Phone Gloves. These gloves were convertible type gloves where you could remove the fingertip to touch the buttons on the phone. Actually, these are still very popular today.
Then, and shortly afterwards, along came the Touch Screen cell phone and that lead to the introduction of the conductive fibers and polymers commonly found in the Touch Screen Gloves. This allowed new types of Touch Screen Gloves such as leather gloves and even some coated work gloves.
So, and in conclusion, if you are searching our web site, the same gloves are included in each category so don’t be confused. It’s actually helps your preferred search engine when you find us.
In that effort, we’ll keep our two categories just in case.
Quality Driver Style Cowhide Leather Work Gloves are hard to come by and find.
The leather is either too thin or made from inferior cowhide to keep costs down. However, even with a more attractive cost these gloves tend to wear out quickly or fall apart. So, you saved some money but you had to replace them sooner than you anticipated.
The good news is that our friends at Black & Decker have introduced a new driver style work glove that’s very impressive, very durable, and very comfortable. These gloves are so comfortable that you will be happy to wear them all day long.
The gloves feature a traditional driver style design but they have a more durable cowhide, have double stitching throughout for added durability, and have a reinforced thumb crotch that adds life to the gloves. They also have a nice elastic shirred wrist for a snug fit but can be easily donned and removed.
I highly recommend you purchase a pair or two of the Black & Decker DB555 Gloves when your current leather work gloves wear out.
For years we’ve supplied Santa Claus personnel with white gloves and we even have a special shopping link to make their search easier.

I’m pleased to introduce a new glove to our line of High-Visibility gloves. After all, daylight savings time will end this week so it comes at a very appropriate time and better yet it’s a “lined” fall/winter version.
Why all the fuss about this type of traditional type of leather palm glove?
First, it is a full-featured high quality grain pigskin leather with all of the features only found in more expensive models.
1. Quality select grain pigskin which dries soft and remains supple if they get wet unlike cowhide.
2. Hi Visiblity Orange/Yellow bands on the back of hand.
3. Retro-reflective strips built into the hi-vis bands.
4. Insulated lining for warmth.
5. Reinforced finger tips for added protection.
6. 2.5” Safety Cuff for easy on and off.
7. Unisex sizing: Small – XL
Lastly and most important, this model is a whopping 30% less in savings than the other alternate model which we have been selling for years – and without sacrificing on quality or design. The pricing on this glove is awesome.

Because of the fire potential, it dawned on my today that we have a few solutions for handling or returning your Samsung Galaxy Note 7 smart phone.
I personally own a Note 5 which I love and considered up-grading to the Note 7 later this year. Unfortunately, those plans are on hold due to the recall by Samsung.
In any case, if you have a Note 7 and are concerned about the burning curiosity that may develop as you plan to carry your phone into your local cell phone retailer; we have a few good gloves that may dampen that concern.
See our Heat & Flame Resistant gloves. These will be a great preventive measure to avoid any burns to your hands. If you don’t have a Note 7, you may want to bookmark this link in case you may need any heat or flame resistant gloves in the future. BTW, the Wells Lamont gloves are always a good choice.
Don’t forget, we are your best glove source and we try to cover all the bases and your hands. We also know how to have fun when it comes to gloves.
