Chamois Gloves at Pickett

Several years ago (in fact decades ago!) the then manager of Lord's in The Burlington Arcade told me that very few people even then knew about chamois gloves. Amazingly, though, they have survived readymade at Pickett. Now I am told that when their current stock has gone, they will stock them no longer. However, Chester Jefferies will still make them bespoke. Thank goodness for that.


  1. Will Pickett offer Chamois gloves Made to Order? Madova in Florence, who we wrote about a little while ago, also still offer Chamois gloves.

  2. I'm not sure whether they will offer them to order but I daresay that, if they do, they will probably have them made through Chester Jefferies and mark up the price, so just go there or to Madova instead.

  3. I would advise that you have CJ make them with a button wrist as the chamois tends to rub off on the coat sleeves and it looks much tidier as an open wrist tends to ride up on itself.
