Today, I’m delighted to announce that Gloves-Online is now an authorized dealer of the DeWalt Glove Line.
Most of you are already aware of the world-renown DeWalt brand of professional high-end power tools for the construction, manufacturing and woodworking industries. The good news for you and for us is that DeWalt is making a major effort to rework their current line of mechanics and work gloves.
The other good news is that this effort is being championed by an old glove-guru friend of mine, Dan Branson. Dan was hired this past year by DeWalt to manage and develop the new glove lines and, frankly, I couldn’t be happier. I can guarantee you that you will soon see some of the best glove innovations in work gloves and I anticipate announcing them as they hit the market.

OK! OK! There’s no need to remind me that I just wrote about “these” gloves and cell phones gloves just 2 days ago. Let’s just say I’m a bit behind the times. I’m not saying nor would I ever say I’m behind on glove technology – I’m just behind on cell phone technology. After all, I still enjoy my clunky Blackberry keyboard. And, believe it or not, it was my very first cell-phone just two years ago. Don’t laugh – I’m just a glove guy!
Anyway, my “young” entrepreneurial staff brought me to my senses once again. It became touch-and-go for a time (pun intended), but I’m reminded that the touch-screen interface has finally become mainstream. It seems these days, high-quality touch-screen-based interfaces have made their way into PC’s, tablets, phones, PMP’s, digital cameras, and a host of other devices.
Actually, and after thinking about this, this was good news to my ears since we sell TOUCH SCREEN GLOVES
, too. WOW, I nailed it again! But don’t forget, I am the Glove Guru. So, after 2 days, I relented and now we also have a shopping page devoted to guess what? Yep! That was an easy guess, huh?
Anybody want to buy my Blackberry? I’ll be happy to throw in a “new” pair of cell phone gloves
A year ago today I mentioned our record sales of cell phone gloves and one year later things haven’t changed. This past weekend we surpassed last year’s sales already. I’m not surprised since we expanded our cell phone glove choices to over 23 models and styles – not including all of the sizes and color options.
In fact, we even have a special shopping page dedicated to Cell-Phone Gloves
. This page makes it easier to narrow your choices down from all of our winter glove offerings
and includes all of the men’s, women’s, and girl’s models ranging from fashion leathers to colorful knits.
When shopping for cell-phone gloves
you need to know that there are two types. One type has removable finger tips and thumb tops and the newer types are touch-screen versions. With either type you don’t have to remove your gloves in the cold weather to use your cell phone or tablets.
We also offer a handy Gift Certificate
option for those picky persons on your holiday shopping list. This way they can pick the model they prefer and you don’t have to guess on the size or color either.
Although we are probably the largest source for cell-phone gloves, I wouldn’t delay. They will sell out fast since they make ideal gifts and stocking stuffers.
Happy Holidays, The Glove Guru
It’s rare that I mention children’s gloves and I’m not sure why since they have represented a large share of our business for many years. As a matter of fact, I’ve even developed and made some models for other companies. It’s a hand protection segment often overlooked by the big glove companies but kids need and like gloves, too.
The obvious thought that comes to mind is protection from the cold during the winter months. I remember that well when I was a kid and gloves were as important as a good pair of boots and my mother was always right to make sure I was equipped with a good pair of gloves. After all, they were vital for snowball wars!
If you’re curious or need some children’s gloves you can go to this link to see our entire lineup.
By the way, they make great stocking stuffers, too!
The All-Day Protective Glove Liners
not only continue to be great gloves for many types of users, they also represent my history in glove design, development, and manufacturing going back to 1989.
I originally developed these gloves as glove liners to protect healthcare workers from problems with latex gloves. That was back when these same healthcare providers had to wear gloves “by law” to protect them from blood-born pathogens due to the AIDS virus. In a nutshell, they were the first universally sized, thin-knit gloves which could be worn under disposable gloves. It isn’t rocket science today but two decades ago it was and I landed in the glove business overnight due to the unmet demand for thin knit protective gloves.
To make a long story short, these same gloves found their way into the manufacturing glove wearing sectors and eventually became the benchmark in the photographic and imaging industry to protect films, negatives, and photographs from workers handling them.
Now, I’m in the scanner cleaning business and this guy is bringing these gloves into the digital age.
I wish I thought of this but I’m still the Glove Guru.
Who knew? We do!
Yes, every year in October we see a rapid spike in our consumer glove sales. It’s no mystery either. It is all about people looking for that special glove to add the final touch to their Halloween costumes.
From a businessman’s perspective, I’m inclined to believe that our prices are so low, their almost scary. And that’s no mystery either.
Happy Halloween from the Glove Guru.
5 Million New I-Phones were sold this past weekend, so you can imagine we will be overwhelmed with glove orders for these extraordinary gloves. The cold weather is here already so don’t wait and be forced to settle for a model that is out of stock.
We were the first to introduce cell phone gloves to the world back in 2008 and we sell out our allotments every year since. Our best sellers are the Isotoner
models and they are great gifts, too.
We stock many models, many styles, including men’s and women’s models and teens. And by the way, our touch screen gloves will never be obsolete.
Many customers ask what Nappa Leather is so it’s time to strip away the myths about Nappa leathers.
Nappa leather is full-grain leather, typically dyed, and made from unsplit kidskin, lambskin or sheep skin. It is tanned with salts of chromium or aluminum sulfate, and noted for its softness, stretchiness, flexibility, and durability. It is often used in high-quality leather products such as high-end furniture, wallets, handbags, and most often high quality dress and fashion gloves.
Nappa leather should not be confused with cowhide which is thicker, less flexible, and used in heavy-duty work gloves.
Even though Italian leather craftsmen have mastered making and working with Nappa leather, the tanning process which produces Napa leather was invented in 1875 at the Sawyer Tanning Company in Napa, California.
Examples of popular Men’s and Women’s Nappa leather gloves can be found at the following links:
The new ICON Designer Art Leather Gloves arriving in October are now available for pre-order since we purchased all that the factory can produce this year. Quantities will be limited due to their popularity, limited production, and the fact that these glove models have become collector’s items. The design patterns change annually so we suggest you reserve your own personal pair today.
The ideal Christmas gift this year.
