What’s your glove size?

January 10, 2020

With the cold winter weather, many of you might be thinking of protecting your hands. You may need gloves for outdoor activities or just a pair for the car until it warms up.

Many gloves come in small, medium, large and extra large. It can be a shock when someone asks you what your fitted glove size is.

It’s easy to figure out. Be sure to use a cloth tape measure or a string that does not stretch. Wrap the tape around the widest part of your palm. The tape will be just above the connecting point between the thumb and the palm and to the widest part of the other side of the palm. Wrap it fully around your hand and tug it gently. Do not pull it tight. It should just fit as you would like your gloves to fit.

Driza-Bone Now in Midweight

February 9, 2017

Driza-Bone has created a midweight version of its world-famous coats. The midweight coat weighs 30% less than its heavyweight counterpart, allowing for more flexibility while providing superior protection.

According to the Driza-Bone website, the traditional oilskin first came into existence in the 1890’s when British sailor Emilius Le Roy had the idea of creating an indestructible wet-weather jacket made from recycled ship sails that were treated with oil. From here, the oilskin legend was born and would later become the famous wet-weather coat and an Australian workwear staple.
