Instead of treating gloves as a wardrobe afterthought, buy a quality pair. They'll not only keep you warm, but they'll look good with the rest of your clothes, too. And make sure they fit you. "Winter gloves should fit snugly but not tightly – they need to have room for air, which insulates," says Bryan Freedman, owner of the San Francisco–based retailer Leather Gloves Online. "To find your size, wrap a tape measure around the middle of your palm. That number is your glove size. Then round up to the nearest whole size for winter gloves." Here are four top-end leather and suede pairs we like.
