Brancale Gloves

For many, the name Brancale musters up romantic images of leather “hair-net” helmet-clad pro-peloton racers of the 70’s and 80’s. Brancale shoes were the favorite of the likes of Grand Tour champions such as Greg LeMond. After several decades of dormancy, the brand has been resurrected and now is offering small-batch luxury leather and merino wool cycling apparel, available consumer-direct through its website. See your new pinnacle riding gloves after the jump.

Brancale Winter Gloves

The newly launched brand, originally an Italian company, is now based stateside in Washington D.C. and boasts a fresh line of limited quantity high-end cycling apparel including merino wool products from the United States, leather gloves from England, and bib shorts and jerseys from Northern Italy.

I’d really like to see a glove with the seams on the outside so they are completely comfortable ala Formula 1 driving gloves. I’d don’t give a damn how they look as long as they are actually comfortable during a long ride.

i got specialized gloves that are very much like the first ones (short fingers), with a mix of leather and spandex. they’re great looking (just like the ones here), comfy, and much cheaper (40 bucks).

been 1.2years riding daily with them and they’re still useable for another year or two at least. I love them.

“limited quality” favorite typo this week.
note from the editor: We have to agree Odellio, that was a a pretty good one. As you would guess that should have read “limited quantity”, so we had to fix it. Thanks for the catch though.

Anyone remember why we stopped using leather gloves?

so nice…but so wouldn’t. If I had to have leather gloves I’d probably settle for trying the Giro LX.

why not leather gloves? Because they stink after 2 months. Yes, you can wash them, but they feel like stiff sandpaper afterwards. Better to use synthetic gloves, and wash them regularly.

@ginsu,

Not sure if they still make them but Fox used to have a full finger external seam model or two at the bottom of their range, particularly in the moto glove side of things. I remember a buddy having some and thinking they looked like work gloves…but they were comfortable!

I wondered at the time if the seam fabric might catch on adjacent fingers, but it didn’t seem to be a problem.
