A. Boon, Antwerp

This is the coolest old school glove store in Antwerp - maybe anywhere.
The gloves are still hand-made and are available in six sizes.

Can you bring back a pair for each of your loyal readers ? ;-)

There is also a very cool, very tiny custom glove store in Lisbon that has been there for ages. Can't remember the name off hand but check it out if you're ever there.

Oh my, how beautiful and had no idea such stores were still around! Thank you, Scott!

Brings back happy memories of my lovely Mother telling me about when she and my Aunt would walk from Cambridge over the Longfellow Bridge to the West End of Boston where there were "glove" shops (1930's). I often think about this...wow, stores devoted to gloves...how cool and of course, I just love gloves!

Best wishes,
Kelly

I just found your post when doing a search for this store. I went here in 2005 and bought 5 pairs of beautiful gloves. Going to this store was my most memorable shopping esperience - watching the owner gently "puff" out each finger with her wooden dowl, and then the way she had me place my elbow on the counter so she could slide one gove on my hand and then place the other just perfectly in that gloved hand. It was a real treat. I can't wait for the day that I can return.

I completely agree Sophie, I have a huge drawer/box/bookcase fetish. This looks like a wonderful store, like a place that embodies a true sartorialist. I hope they continue to stay in business.

And please keep posts like this coming, i especially like the one about the custom cobbler in, was it, Milan?
