Vintage Gloves by Miloré
I first encountered the name Miloré while reading a fashion spread entitled The Texture of Tweed a few weeks ago. The article dates September 1968, and as you can see from the images below, the gloves in question aren’t exactly taking centre stage. However, discovering a brand name never fails to capture my interest, so off I went to do a little research.
Unfortunately, I’ve not been able to find any information on the company, other than the fact they were based in Worcester. However, I did find some lovely examples of their handy work on eBay – get it? Handy! Oh never mind – I digress! Anyway, I placed a bid on these gorgeous tan leather gloves and they arrived a few days ago. They’re authentic vintage, probably dating late 1960s, and still retain the original tag and plastic cover. They must be the softest gloves ever!
They’re not keepers though. I’d dearly love to keep them but no, they were bought with my sister in mind. She’d lost out on a pair of leather gloves at a vintage fair we went to a couple of months back, so when I saw these for sale, I just knew they’d be perfect for her. As it turns out, she loves them as much as I do! Happy days!
Here’s the blurb from the back of the plastic case the gloves arrived in. If you happen to comes across Miloré special shampoo, please let me know. Not that the gloves will ever be washed of course, but it would be fun to find nonetheless . . . . .
