We're not breaking out gloves quite yet, in fact, we're not even wearing tights today. But the cold is coming and until we find the nerve to buy leather pants, which after reading this quote from Stella McCartney we probably won't, we're going to lust after these from American Retro. They're the arm equivalent to thigh-high boots, reaching up almost in to your armpit (though not quite because that would be uncomfortable). The buttery black leather's cut off at the end, so your fingers are free and you can wear them at all times and though they're expensive, they'll qualify as a classic in the right wardrobe. We'd suggest pairing with something more like Garance's MaxMara coat than the model's Jenny Humphrey hair, but that's just us.
