With Cotillion class enrollment ramping up before school starts, we always get numerous phone calls from new directors asking which model gloves they should purchase.
Although we have many options in our Cotillion category, the best and most popular model is our White Unisex Stretch Nylon gloves (NYP-404) in Small/Medium size. This model offers a quality classic look and since they stretch, they will fit almost every child.
The other benefit of the NYP-404 gloves is that they have a nice cotton like feel and they come individually packaged by the pair for easy storage and administration.
As a footnote, we do have nice cotton models, but they are not as size friendly when you don’t know the sizes of each child.
considered an essential part of a person’s wardrobe. Today, white gloves continue to be used for many different purposes beyond formal occasions. In any case, being white, these gloves will get soiled or dirty so we thought it would be helpful to offer some instructions due to the numerous requests we get from our customers.
First, inspect the gloves for any stains or spots. Our gloves can be machine washed on gentle cycle but hand washing is also sufficient.
If stains or spots are present, prepare the gloves for washing by placing stain remover on any of the stains or spots. Rub the stain remover into the stain using a small, soft-bristled brush. Let them sit for several minutes but no longer than 10.
Wash the gloves using cold water and use a small amount of bleach to bring out the whiteness in the gloves. It is best to wash the gloves by themselves. Washing gloves with other clothing increases the chance you might lose a glove or damage them. Never pour bleach directly onto a glove. This can damage the fabric and stitching. Always dilute the bleach in water.
You can machine dry the gloves using a cool dryer temperature but it is best drip dry or lay them flat to dry.
Note: Cotton gloves will shrink if washed in hot water or dried using a hot temperature.
Reminder: Since the winter weather is still menacing us and your local shops may no longer have gloves in stock, you may want to check out some special pricing on our winter gloves – while supplies last.
Early today, Gloves-Online.com reached the astonishing milestone of One Million page views since January 1– and before our busy season.
Page views are the conservative metric when evaluating web site analytics. For example, if we counted actual hits, the number would be 7 to 10 times higher due to images, etc. You can see this in the chart.
To demonstrate the significance of this number, we have not factored (added) in the customers that migrate to our industrial web site from GO to purchase their industrial and safety gloves. The GO Industrial web site is a completely different web site and we obviously don’t share those metrics since many people follow this Blog – a.k.a industrial espionage – but you can perceive those hits.
For the skeptics out there, I’ve added a web shot image of our actual metric scale which can be enlarged.
I doubt there is another glove company in the world that has reached this milestone in less than 9 months. After all, we were the very first global glove company on the Internet since 1996.
I can’t wait to see how successful the internet shop of our fine fashion glove boutique in St. Thomas, USVI, Olga Gloves, becomes.
And GO Gloves has managed to help with hard-to-find White Gloves for the last 15 years.
As a matter of fact, White Gloves were our first major glove line on our web site back in 1996. (To put that in perspective that was 2 years before Google’s beta version.) Today, our White Glove program remains our largest product line by far and we estimate that we are the largest supplier of white glove in North America.
Besides providing gloves to doormen (see article) around the world, we have many types of white glove styles for any occasion or event. For all age groups, too. Check them out for yourself.
