**Please be aware, this was a one-off collaboration and is not obtainable**
French storied producer Lavabre Cadet makes the best gloves I’ve ever worn – however they don’t have many shops, significantly not of their full vary of skins and finishes.
As a step in direction of correcting that, we’re launching a joint collaboration in the present day between Everlasting Type, Lavabre Cadet and Anderson & Sheppard.
A variety of gloves I’ve chosen will likely be obtainable made-to-order (MTO) by way of the Everlasting Type store. And for these in London, Anderson & Sheppard will likely be providing them in Clifford Road, alongside samples of the leathers and sizes.
[Ordering online is done through emailing me at [email protected] to verify particulars, after which fee on the Everlasting Type store web page.]
The dimensions is vital, as a result of one in every of Lavabre Cadet’s promoting factors is the very fact it presents quarter sizes – the place just about everybody else solely has half sizes.
So people who order will likely be despatched particulars on easy methods to measure their palms, and should effectively discover a quarter-size match, giving them a greater match.
We additionally encourage individuals to hint their hand and embody it with their order, so the Lavabre atelier exterior Paris has all attainable data.
We’ve intentionally picked three leathers for this collaboration to cowl a variety of worth factors (all costs ex-VAT):
- Goatskin, black or brown: £160
- Lambskin, black or brown: £250
- Peccary, black, brown (pictured on me), cork or gray: £320
One of many issues I instantly discover within the peccary from Lavabre Cadet is how a lot softer it’s than the gloves I’ve had from different makers.
In actual fact, this peccary is so laborious to pay money for that this MTO provide needs to be restricted to 5 pairs in every of the 4 colors.
That very same high quality of sourcing extends to the opposite leathers too – the goatskin and the lambskin. The lamb is barely softer than the child, however each really feel nicer than comparable hides from different makers.
When you’ve picked your leather-based, there are few different choices.
You may have them lined in black or white silk, or in black or beige cashmere. The peccary may also be unlined.
The development will be with the seams turned inwards (neater and dressier) or outwards (thicker and extra masculine). If outwards, they are often handstitched, for an additional £45.
And eventually, you may add as much as 4 initials, on the within of the underside of the glove, for £22 (per glove).
It’s numerous choices, however these are the pleasures of made-to-order.
Above you may see some primary examples of the colors (click on to enlarge, or proper click on and open in a brand new tab) and under are three examples exhibiting the 3 ways of ending the sides.
I’d significantly draw your consideration to the shut, cropped end of the seams on the outside-stitching building, which you’ll see most clearly on my gloves within the above photos.
That is one other attribute of Lavabre Cadet and one thing that makes this finely crafted mannequin way more elegant to put on.
If you need to order on-line please e-mail me at [email protected] to verify your particulars and obtain data on measuring. Cost will nonetheless be by way of the store website.
Supply for the gloves is three weeks from ordering, so loads of time earlier than Christmas. The price of supply is roughly the identical as our polo shirts: EU £13, in every single place else £19.
