Our Gloves Begin With You

As the winter chill sinks in its teeth, we at Crisiswear find ourselves circling back on an ongoing conversation: gloves. Should we make them? What kinds do people want? Should we specialize? Go broad? What would a truly Crisiswear brand glove look and feel like anyways?

Truth be told, we're not just beginning this conversation. We already have designs prepped, measurements taken and inspiration flowing. But we're missing one thing: you.

Do you regularly ride a bike and suffer from cold hands and arms? Do you wear gloves daily for protection? For style? Unwrap your Crisiswear glove fantasy in the comments and let us know how we can best design the ultimate pair of gloves for you. Extra points awarded for specificity.

I’m a lead guitarist (lots of “shred” and friction in my hands) and I would love to have gloves that came all the way up to the base of the nail and just left my fingertips exposed. And if you make tiny gloves based on actual female hand sizes, hooo boy you are light years ahead of everyone else (most women’s gloves are sized so stupidly!).

Definitely want to see some knuckle and palm protection, even if it’s just done with heavy seamwork. And mid-forearm for length- hate ending up with my wrists exposed.

Fingerless gloves with a removable liner that turn them into fingered gloves with touchscreen compatiblity. Some sort of sweat-wicking/reducing palm, as I end up taking fingerless gloves off bc palms get sweaty. The zipper design on IG is sick, like that with the above features!

A lot of what I look for in my gear is design that’s made to last and provide reasonable protection from the elements. Use of textiles like rip stop and gortex are a major plus. I agree with a lot of the other comments on a 3/4 extension/sleeve, as well as the addition of pocket(s) and/or webbing for utility and storage. Padding for abrasion resistance in the palm is a must have as well.
Inclusion of leather for an armored look could be cool too, and useful for anyone using these gloves for more than just fashion is a huge selling point as well.

Elbow length gloves with zippered entry would be great, a stretchy material with a thicker material for accents would be awesome.

As with many of your products and designs.. I CAN’T WAIT. Keep up the great work.

Something that covers part of the hand and maybe good for climbing? But still retains most of your design.

Ideally I love gloves that have some give or stretch to form feel, at least a couple inches past the wrist, fingerless and black.

I have a birthmark on my hand that I’m super self conscious about so I’d love to see you guys making gloves! Something fairly minimalist that still retains your amazing pattern cutting would be awesome. ?

Crisiswear! I would love to see gloves designed by you and to own a pair would be a dream. I’m a filmmaker and musician in Chicago, so I need warm hands with free fingers, flexibility and a utilitarian style that fits me. In black or gray!!! I spend a lot of time outdoors and am often carrying gear of some sort. Thank you! I love your raider cowl, I wear it every day!

Wind proof gloves that work with touch screens. For a different pair a slit pocket on the inside of the forearm for id.

I would love something elbow length, black, breathable, and fingerless, but made in such a way as to not cut into the space between my fingers uncomfortably. A little padding over the knuckle (for punching Nazis) would be awesome too, as well as maybe an adjustable wrist wrap for support. The wrap could also potentially allow for a thinner, ventilated material at the wrist for active use. (My wrists and palms get hit when I run) The thumb should be covered to the joint because it’s more comfortable that way. A hidden pocket on the inside of the wrist for money, cards, knives, etc also (ideally water resistant) would be useful. And for me the most important thing would be UPF50 sun protection.

I would love 3/4 armlength gloves in both fingerless and w/finger in different material options such as leather, lightweight material, etc. Motorcycle type gloves.

Also different textured gloves in all options of gloves.

A lot of these comments are awesome ideas!

Over the knuckle armwarmer style that has a thumb hole and wraps round palm. Over the palm have sections to add extra grip. Runs the length of the arm but has elbow section exposed. Have small slip pockets for small items on for arm .

-Fingerless, but to the knuckles with grippy palms and a short thumb sleeve.
-Opera length or 3/4 forearm.
-Black with contrasting stitching.
-Soft fabric that is warm and moves with you.

Fingerless warm gloves that look more fashionable would be amazing. I work in a building where the heat rarely works, but I still need to work with my hands and look professional. It’s almost impossible to find anything like that.

Gloves are difficult to make as they are often cumbersome, bulky, and reduce dexterity of the fingers. Plus, you are often forced to take them off to mess with the phone. To counter this, I have a unique design that should cover all this.

Make the gloves more like wraps from the middle of the hand (excluding the fingers) and up the arm. It should be like a boxer. A boxer will often take bandages and wrap them around his hands and forearms before putting on boxing gloves. Do the same with the gloves, but this time make them opera length.

Now we still have to contend with the lack of dexterity. Fingerless gloves make the hand cold. The best way to keep them warm without sacrificing dexterity, is to make the fingers of neoprene, wrapped or tipped in some sort of latex. This should keep the fingers of the gloves thin and make them grippy enough to grasp things firmly.

Something badass like the rest of y’alls work. Maybe with strong geometric panels on the hands, leading up to interesting textured fabrics. Whatever you guys do, I know it’ll turn out amazing.

Your work is a big inspiration for my sci fi cosplay work. I always have cold arms/hands and it would be amazing to have sick futuristic gloves keep me warm. I also live stream my art (paintings, sculptures, cosplay, props, makeup) to a large audience so they always see what’s on my arms/hands. I’m a huge fan here haha. Thank you for your time.

Something with fingers—fingerless is cool and all, but let’s keep the hand warm—that’s good for haptic response with screens and buttons. Rugged/solid material on the palms for handling things/parkour/etc. Length to forearm with elastic to hold it up.

If the gloves go up to the elbow, I’d love a hidden pocket for an ID. I’d like options for hot and cold. A lot of events I like to attend are in the desert, so breathable fabrics on the hot weather gloves for daytime use. But nights get cold out in the desert so leather/fur would be nice for functionality.

Fingerless and regular options would be nice. Possibly even velcro for easy on/off.

These probably arent new suggestions. Looking forward to these beauties being released!

I wear fingerless wool military glove liners. I think an updated version of these with a wool lycra blend so it doesn’t loose it’s shape would be great. Then different levels of warm and hand coverage with other additions.

I’d dig some modular gloves that I could both wear inside to do art in and then put some pieces on to go outside into the cold with.

1. Fingerless base design. In some way, like buttons, the fingers could be attached for outside wear. Storage could be on top of the hand in a pouch (for functionality and I think it’d look cool)

2. Detacheable or roll up into a pouch for the part pf the glove that would go past the wrist, down the forearm. Maybe with a few set buttons for setting at different lengths.

3. Because I draw, maybe some kind of smooth fabric patch that would go the length of the base of the pinky to the lower padding where the wrist meets the hand.

Dream gloves for conquering the world!!!

I have some fingerless gloves that are a sort of a tight knit/woven design and I’ve had them for YEARS. They are starting to wear out and I would absolutely love to have a new pair but have yet to ever find some again. They are forearm length and incredibly comfortable. They look great with anything from sport coats to alternative clothin styles. I would love to see them made or perhaps some sort of style like them that are not leather and are versatile for wear as well as unisex.

Something that has a fold over option—primarily used fingerless but for those chilly days a sturdy full glove. I walk dogs all through the seasons so something like that would be awesome. Available in black or olive would be pretty awesome too! Maybe a faux leather accent, something sleek and functional. I too, have small hands so a plethora of sizes would be great too!

Gloves that go past your wrist, all the way to the elbow is a bonus. And fingerless with a flap thingy to convert them to mittens.
