I *heart* frisking gloves
As I understand it, the idea is that if you make gloves really really thin, you'll feel a needle before you put enough pressure on it to puncture the glove. This leads to some really sexy gloves for law enforcement.
Local uniform shops carry a variety of them, but many have some sort of lining. Ones without can be tough to find, especially since I've got tiny hands (which has pluses and minuses ^-^ ). I've gone to the trouble of special-ordering a few times...
I love gloves! A while ago I won a glove lot auction on Ebay and it was full of incredible old gloves. One of them was exquisitely made and had a stamp inside that read, "Marque de XAVIER JOUVIN inventeur, Brevet d'inventention 1834..." so I had to do some research. After spending about three hours researching gloves on the internet I decided that I will never get enough of looking at beautiful gloves, so why not start a community so others can help me look at beautiful gloves?
Here's my favorite glove picture:
