Love these! I've got at least three pairs from Mexicali Blues. Got green; got blue and these brown. One Christmas I gave pairs to J- and Elenks, but they weren't big hits, so I inherited them all. These have been in my truck since September. Yes, really! You see, I have a touch of Raynaud's phenomenon. Well, to be perfectly honest, I've got it good! Had I listened, as a kid, to Mommy Dearest and not gotten some severe, repeated frostbite, or not had my 'love affair' with the chainsaw in my later years , I do believe I wouldn't be dealing with this now. But that's another story. All I can say is when I'm wearing these... I ain't got no Blues!

Your gloves are pretty. But I find mittens are warmer. Kinda hard to chainsaw with mittens though.ReplyDelete
Severe frostbite--ouch! I had not heard of RP but now I understand.
Stay warm and pink, Birdman.
Such "comfort clothes/accessories" are akin to "comfort food"... I relate to both.ReplyDelete
j'avais les memes il y a tres longtemps, maintenant pour avoir chaud, je mets des gans en soie avec par dessus des gans simple, la soie garde la chaleur du corpsReplyDelete
Love the design! But like Dina, I'm a mitten girl, too :DReplyDelete
i'd love a pair of my own...how peculiar that these gifts didn't fit E and J 'like a glove'.ReplyDelete
You are one of a kind, birdman. Love the gloves.ReplyDelete
Those look cozy and most of all warm!ReplyDelete
hey, boomerang gifts are twice the fun! :)ReplyDelete
I love these glves Bird. you can regift me if you like! :)ReplyDelete
I love gloves and these are charming! Love the colors!ReplyDelete
They look quite manly but yet pretty!ReplyDelete
Neat Gloves.... My hubby has some sensitivity in his hands and feet ---so he loves wearing gloves... AND he never walks without his shoes on....ReplyDelete
Just catching up from traveling ... these guys look mighty warm. My hubby has cold hands all the time and always wearing gloves!ReplyDelete
I never give gifts that I don't like, but it wouldn't occur to me that gift gloves might boomerang back to me. Reynaud's. I had to look it up. It doesn't look very comfortable. I guess I was more of a wimp in my youth.ReplyDelete
I'm late again, and agreeing with everyone. Raynauds is in my family, I understand it can be painful when the circulation comes back.ReplyDelete
Love the gloves. I am not a mitten person myself. I need use of my fingers!ReplyDelete
My Mama had Reynaud's which periodically made portions of her fingers look totally bloodless, waxy even. She also had peripheral neuropathy which made her feet and hands so very cold to the touch. To my knowledge she never wielded a chainsaw or suffered frostbite. Nor did she have diabetes. I myself attribute both of those chronic conditions to the decades of cigarette smoking the undertook. Restricting blood vessels and all that. One of the things we struggled with was finding suitable gloves for her to wear while in her recliner, completing crossword puzzles. She had another pair that she wore in the bed at night so that she could read her paperback mystery as she got sleepy.ReplyDelete
Anyway, I'm glad you now have three swell pairs of gloves that you like.
