I'm not a fan of driving gloves either. I'm a fan of money and they have the potential to make some money.

I think a better bet would be going to a company that already makes functional and comfortable gloves for racing and to just ask them to build a set of gloves with short cuffs, and to make the tops out of black or brown leather.

If they optionally embroidered a Porsche Crest, BMW M logo, or Audi S, it'd probably have greater success.

to the last part.

But I am a fan of my driving gloves. They're nice for spirited drives.

Sounds like he approached manufacturers - not surprisingly, they're not interested in small production runs/"new" designs.

Bleh...then you'd have to license each brand. Better to attempt to include them in their "lifestyle" catalogs and sell TO those companies.

QUESTION

I replaced my wipers with Goodyear ones from Costco, 22" in the drivers side, 20" on the passenger. For some reason the drivers side wiper leaves a patch in the middle of the windshield the size of a CD unwiped. Any idea why?

Meh, his $115 plain jane driving gloves that only offer fake suede as a selling point is pretty lame.

I probably has something to do with the blade or the windshield. Any ideas which?

Just so I'm not going off in the wrong direction, what exactly is the purpose of driving gloves? like, those leather ones with the holes that look like they belong in a bondage film?

Because for half the price you can get actual gloves that make you look like an elf but have a real leather palm and will protect you from a fire should your car go up in flames; so particularly useful if you drive a ferrari.
