White Gloves happens to be one of the most popular
searched key words in regards to gloves on the internet search engines. It’s
also interesting that white gloves happen to be our largest selling gloves in
terms of volume.
To give you a little history, White Gloves happened to
be our first product line on Gloves-Online back in 1996. To put this time-line
in an interesting perspective, this was even before Google was live.
We introduced white gloves since people were searching
for these using our static web site that only had an email contact link along
with glove information. This was before internet shopping carts. People kept
asking us where they could purchase white gloves so with their help; they did
our marketing research to introduce white gloves as our first product.
This wasn’t exactly a rabbit out of that hat idea as an internet product idea since we were already an established domestic glove manufacturer. We used Gloves-Online to sell the high-tech gloves that we manufactured but we also needed some consumer gloves to help with our visibility on the early Netscape browser search engine at the time. Maybe that brings back some memories for old times sake. I doubt you Millennials have a clue what I’m referring to here.
The vast majority of the White Gloves we sell today are cotton gloves and nylon gloves. Although we also sell white leather gloves which are only popular in the winter months and normally only used as a nice fashion accessory, my focus will cover our cotton and nylon gloves. Another large category for white gloves is satin and silk gloves which I will discuss in the future. These models are normally used for weddings and balls.
White Gloves today:
As you can tell by the paragraph above, we’ve got the
white glove category covered. The important issue is that not only are we an
authority on gloves, we have 30 years of glove manufacturing know-how and
This brings up another matter. Quality and trust from
these years of making and selling white gloves. We not only know how to make a
good quality glove for a fair and reasonable price, we also know what the
market wants, needs, and likes in gloves.
The white gloves we make and sell today are much different than the ones we introduced in 1996 except for a select few nylon models. Over the years, we learned what people liked in these gloves and what people preferred as far as glove design, glove fit, glove feel, and glove function. I often say that when it comes to gloves, it’s all about the 3 F’s. Fit, feel, and function.
Another aspect is pricing. It’s a big mistake to think
that people buy gloves based on price. Although, people are very cost
conscious, people don’t want gloves that are too thin that you can see through
them. They don’t want gloves where the knit gauge is too high were they end up
stretching and falling off. Nor do customers want gloves that fall apart due to
A big mistake that people often make when searching for
white gloves on the internet is they cannot judge the quality or type of glove.
They simply type in “white gloves” in the search and up pops the following
types. Cheap inspection gloves used in manufacturing operations to eliminate
finger prints on products or inexpensive thin therapy gloves from the chain
drug stores that are used primarily for wound protection or therapeutic creams.
Although our gloves can be used in these cases since they are made from 100%
pure quality cotton, most people want gloves for special events where they look
great and feel great.
A point to always remember: “You get what you pay for.”
White Glove Categories
I’m sure you never sat back and thought about all of the uses that people need white gloves for so I listed the most popular categories. To help you, these categories are linked to our web site in case you are reading this for the first time and looking for a glove in the general category you’re searching.

Cotton Gloves verses White Nylon Gloves
one should I buy?
This is a question that we get asked about almost every
day for new customers. I’ll answer the most popular questions below.
the cotton glove models better than the nylon glove models?
The answer is no. Our white nylon gloves are a very
high quality nylon that looks and feels like cotton. The big difference here is
that the cotton can be bleached and washed if they get dirty and you want to
reuse them. The nylon gloves also stretch unlike the cotton gloves.
should I buy nylon gloves rather than cotton gloves?
This is a simple answer since our cotton gloves and
nylon gloves are of the same quality, look, and feel. The main difference is
with sizing issues.
Our cotton gloves are made in up to 7 different sizes for
men, women, and children depending on the model. See our sizing chart in the
left hand navigation panel of our web site.
Remember, our nylon gloves are made to stretch.
Therefore, we have only 2 adult sizes plus children’s sizes in separate models.
The adult sizes in the nylon gloves come in 2 sizes:
Small/Medium and Large/Extra Large. The S/M will fit most women and the L/XL
will fit most men. We always suggest that if you are looking to buy gloves for
a large group of people, then buy the nylon gloves since the fit is more
