Handsewn Lambskin Black Dress Gloves
This classic men’s glove hasn’t changed in generations and was first made by Hilts-Willard in the 1890’s. Abyssinian lambskin was first imported through Boston in the late 1700’s and still makes the very best lambskin leather. The lambs are raised by families for meat in villages across the Ethiopian plateau. The high elevation (over 8000 feet) has imparted an unusually fine grain surface and strength unequalled by any other leather. Ellery is sewn throughout with neat, lockstitch construction enhanced by hand sewn hems and trim. The seamless knit lining is 50% cashmere for softness and warmth and 50% wool for non-pilling structure and durability. Ellery is an essential in any man’s wardrobe.
Hilts-Willard has been making legendary gloves in Gloversville, New York since 1878.
