We exported some of our Fashion Glove savvy to St. Thomas – US Virgin Islands

Finally, after years of planning, we are opening our first retail luxury glove boutique on St. Thomas – US Virgin Islands. The new duty-free shop will feature our exclusive fine fashion Italian leather gloves under the brand called, Olga Gloves.  The shop will also offer other fine fashion gloves.
Olga Gloves is a new venture but not a new experience. We are simply using our half-century of retail glove knowledge to assist shoppers and tourists who visit St. Thomas.
For you industrial glovers reading this, now is the chance to take a vacation and splurge for some nice winter gloves for your family and friends.
Stay tuned for up-dates on the shop. 

Known by the company we keep – ISOTONER Gloves

As the saying goes, you’re always known for the company you keep.
Over the years our customers requested we stock ISOTONERgloves.
Since GO Gloves is customer driven and a one-stop shop for great gloves, this year we are proud to announce that we are now an authorized ISOTONER glove retailer. We will add each model as they hit our warehouse – just in time for holiday sales.
As you can expect, we declined to stock the TOTES/ISOTONER line of slippers and boots. After all, we are just glove experts.

GO Greens® Bamboo Gloves – Lightweight but heavy.

We just received our latest shipment of our popular GO Greens® Bamboo Gloves and things have certainly changed.
 
As many of you already know, the GO Greens Bamboo Gloves were designed to be the best light weight general utility coated work glove on the market. And, be the only environmental friendly work glove, too boot. Mission accomplished.
What we didn’t anticipate is that our warehouse manager had to recruit our office staff to help unload 4 tons of the GO Greens last week.
So much for light weight work gloves. 

Winter Gloves are hot!

Gloves have always been the ideal stocking stuffer. After all, it is Winter.
This season our glove sales have been exceptional again. Maybe it’s the weather; maybe the economy is improving but one thing is for real; Winter Gloves are HOT! In fact, we are running out of models well before previous years.
Here’s a few links to help you find the perfect winter glove or gift. And remember, this is the last week for Standard Shipping.
Happy Holidays, The Glove Guru

Winter Survival Gloves: Texting Gloves

We are going into our 3rd Winter selling season with the Freehand Gloves  and they are simply genius. You well know that taking your gloves off to text while outside is pure torture – and totally unnecessary.
That’s why Freehands gloves are perfect. You can choose from several models including leather and the gloves feature finger caps on your index finger and thumb, which you can flip back when your need to access your phone.
Your can always consider convertible mittens but the Freehands Gloves are more functional for texting while using your smart phone.

Glove guys know best…

This week I had the pleasure to meet another Glove Guru who represents one of the best glove companies in the world. (No pun intended for those in the know)

As with any good glove business guy who wants to establish a rapport, he followed up with an e-mail (nice touch).

I found it interesting that his e-mail signature contained some very useful information.

FACT: Each hand contains: 29 major and minor bones, 29 major joints, at least 123 named ligaments, 34 muscles which move the fingers and thumb, 48 nerves and 30 named arteries. Those facts put a whole new perspective on what our products are actually protecting…

I’ve since invited him for lunch when he is in the area again and I’ll make sure he adds cut protection and heat protection issues to his agenda. He knows best, but he is also helping raising the bar with hand protection issues.

In the meantime, you can check out our Glove University. We call it GO U.
