Geier Elkskin Slip-on Work Gloves
Geier Glove Company was founded by the Geier brothers in 1927. Since then their products have shown consistent attention to detail, both functionally and aesthetically. Still family owned and operated in Centralia, Washington, their high-quality and practical gloves live up to their motto, “Western made for Western trade.”
These Elkskin Slip-on work gloves are practical, durable, loveable. Thicker than the Deerskin Buckle gloves, and slightly less burly than the Heavyweight Snap-Back gloves, they’re made from resilient midweight Tannery Run leather and designed to function simply without thought or complaint. Good protection and tough material aren’t sacrificed, but flexibility and dexterity are maintained. Welted seams, well-placed at the palm and thumb, increase strength and ergonomics, and are well-stitched for durability. Side cut design makes donning them easy, and fitting over or under sleeves simple. Great for general work around the house or shop, or for use as driving (or biking) gloves in your top-down vehicle of choice.
These gloves are good looking, good working, good smelling (at least when you first get them), and produced in genuinely small and large sizes: Lady and Man-Beast Approved.
The Geier party line on glove care is this: wear them. Your hands and work will provide enough oil to condition them over time. If they stiffen after getting wet, avoid heat drying, wearing them will soften them back in.
