Based on recent phone calls, I feel obliged to repeat my post from last year below:
It amazes me that most shoppers looking for a real winter glove fail to purchase Waterproof gloves. I’m not talking about fine fashion lined leather gloves; I’m referring to the winter gloves you wear during outdoor activities such as shoveling snow, sledding, skiing, or hiking. The same applies to winter construction and work gloves.
Thermal lined gloves are a must have and will keep you warm but once the lining becomes wet, your hands will freeze. Regarding linings look for a branded lining like Gore-Tex or HeatKeep just to name a few. A branded lining on the label generally indicates that the manufacturer has made an extra effort to provide warmth. You should also look for a knit wrist or a wrist closure to keep out snow, rain and wind. Lastly, make sure the gloves are WATERPROOF or they will not be cold proof.
Tip: Check out the Youngstown Winter Waterproof Gloves (Pictured). These are by far our #1 selling winter gloves every year since they were first introduced.
One of our famous customers was kind enough to send us a picture of his children’s Halloween costumes. It wouldn’t be difficult to realize from the picture that he is also the Demo Guru at the leading toy store in the world.
We give his wife a huge ^5 on creating and making the Toy Soldier outfits and selecting our gloves for a finishing touch. We only hope that the DiAmbrosio’s continue the tradition (whatever the theme) and allow us to send them more gloves next year.
My hunch is that our friends at Disney and Universal Studios will be asking me for Mrs. DiAmbrosio’s phone number.

It’s that time of year when we get inundated with requests for advice on white cotillion gloves.
Keeping it simple is our best advice when selecting cotillion gloves but a few tend to want only finest gloves as a fashion statement so we can even help if that’s your desire.
A good choice, also recommended by our friends at the National League of Junior Cotillions, is our Full Fashion Nylon Glove models. These are cost effective for group purchase and the two sizes are very size forgiving since they stretch. They will even fit the 12 year olds.
For those of you looking for something different, we even have a shopping area exclusive to Cotillion Gloves.
As always, let us know if you need any help.

A recent e-zine by Industrial Safety Hygiene News discusses one of my favorite topics. Yours truly was featured in the interview section. This feature was sponsored by the IGA (The International Glove Association).

You can see our own work with our GO Greens, too.
The glove gurus at MCR Safety always make me look good because they give me the privilege to offer and sell their latest and greatest glove inventions to you.
They sure pulled the rabbit out of the hat on me again when they sent me samples of the new MCR-Memphis Multi-Task Gloves with moveable LED lights.
Those that know me, know I hate smoke and mirrors and gimmick gloves but these mechanics gloves not only light up your work areas, they have the fit, feel, and function that a multi-task mechanics glove should.
By the way, I think their bean-counters waved their wand over on these gloves because they are affordable enough to buy a few pairs for the price of one pair of competitive brands.
These new multi-purpose work gloves save the earth, save you money, and reduce global warming. Not bad for a little pair of gloves.
That’s not all. I have handfuls of reasons why men and women industrial glove users and weekend warriors should switch to the new GO Greens™ Bamboo Gloves today.

You may recall my announcement back in June that we are implementing a biodegradable packaging initiative.
I am also preparing another announcement to coincide with our green efforts. However, I want to encourage each of you interested in promoting a safer environment to join the virtual march to Stop Global Warming.
Join the march and become part of the movement to demand our leaders freeze and reduce carbon dioxide emissions now. We are all contributors to global warming and we need to be part of the solution.
