It is now too cold to cycle without gloves. I got these royal blue leather gloves last year from Marks & Spencer with a gift voucher I had been given. I have only been using them occasionally because I was worried I would get chain oil on them. When I first got the Brompton I seemed to get spots of oil on my gloves which hid the stains because they were black leather. I was still getting use to folding and carrying the bike back then. But my black leather gloves have now split from age and use. I am reluctant to buy another pair when I have these blue ones and a pair in dark brown. I will have to wait for another voucher.
