Default Driver gloves

Which company did produce the gloves used by Dan Gurney and Ken Miles?







Are they still available?

SUIXTIL is producing something similar, but not identical.

They look like Les Lestons to me. They were common in the racing world at the time too.

You’re right. They look like the Les Leston Grand Prix driving gloves. (or the different new reproductions)


But there is a small difference.
If you check the index finger. On the versions used by Dan and Ken it is lather covered.

Yeah, I see the index finger. They might not be Lestons but I know they were common at the time and before then even. Jim Clark wore Lestons as did Fangio and Moss.
