    Just got mine in the mail today! They seem well made and look great. I will post up some pictures tomorrow and hopefully test them out this weekend!

    Ordered the Autodromo's last night. I'll maybe do a video review since I bought five pairs from different places.

    I got a pair of these as a gift. They go great with my Guards Red Pcar with black leather interior with red stitching. They are even pretty good for driving especially on hot day when the leather steering wheel gets sticky. I think they came from the Pcar dealership maybe $150 -$200 so not nearly as bad as $600 gloves.

    Looks like you are ready for a little driving. I found mine quite comfortable even though I only use them about half the time.

    OK finally had occasion to drive and test them out. At first, whoa...like taking a shower with your clothes on but it felt better and better as I went on. Shifting feels really good and I think that alone will keep me using them for the foreseeable future. It's a little awkward using my ipod and also the phone. Loosing the phone is no big deal it sort of puts you more in the moment anyway. Two leather-clad thumbs up!

    If you have a wood rim steering wheel like I do, driving gloves are a must. The difference in grip is astounding.

    I just picked up a pair from Straton watch co. I paired up the gloves with their new curve chrono watch. They are both awesome

    Just got the Autodromos in. I'll post a review of them later in the week when I've got some time. They fit super well!

    Hard to beat military aircrew gloves... come in dove gray, olive, black, and desert tan - I've seen them as cheap as $15 a pair, generally run around $25 or so... good shooting gloves too.

    Got mine from France, shipping international. Cheap and great. I have used the ones with fingers for the last 3 years and loved them. I just recently trashed them to purchase some new ones as the leather had been damaged (I moved house and used them to protect my hands while carrying heavy/sharp items). I got 2 new pairs, with and without fingers. I like them both but end up using the finger ones most of the time, mainly because the fingerless ones are more awkward to remove.
