    No hat? Us bald guys need something to keep our heads warm.

    Has anyone seen the Dockers wingtips in person? They look good, but are they actually Goodyear Welted?

    • Platt

      I have not seen them in person, but you can safely assume they are not Goodyear welted.

    Might want to look up “TouchTec” gloves. It’s a proprietary coating that makes the entire leather glove touch sensitive. There are no inserts or silver threads, so it will just look like a completely normal leather glove. I was lucky enough to find some on a steep sale a year or two back – normally they’re pretty expensive though. Having experienced them, it’s unlikely that I’ll be settling for any other type of touchscreen glove that either has the silver thread or inserts in only one or two places.

      Thanks for the tip, will do!

      Do you know if either the TouchTec or the featured gloves above work on touchscreens in the cold? (let’s say, in the 20 degrees F range?) I bought a pair of the Nordstrom leather “tech gloves” and they did NOT work in the cold and actually stopped working altogether within the first week I owned them. I didn’t return them because they are relatively thin so I prefer them for driving.

        Not sure about the featured gloves, but the ones I have that use TouchTec do work below 20 degrees. The other day we got -6 degree temps. It was not pleasant. My gloves didn’t really do much to keep me warm, but they still worked on my touchscreen.

        I don’t know enough about how touchscreens work, how the gloves work or human physiology to back up what I’m about to say, however, based on the reading I’ve done in various forums, I’ve come to think that there are a number of major variables that determine smartphone experiences.

        1) The type of phone – some phones just aren’t as good and won’t respond to touch as well as others

        2) Quality control – I think people would be VERY surprised if someone did some testing to determine any differences between 10 iPhone 5s or 10 Samsung Galaxy S4s. Consumers typically won’t notice the variance because they only experience a single device, so they have no basis. Jump over to a forum, though and suddenly big question marks start coming up. Why does my phone do _____ when I ______ but yours doesn’t?? Quality control can definitely effect how responsive your screen is.

        3) People are different – want to know what’s even more complicated than a smartphone? The human body. Wanna talk about variance? The human body.

        Anyway, I think you see where I’m going with this. Just because something works for me, doesn’t mean it will for you. You’re going to have to try it out. My impression is that TouchTec gloves will be MUCH more response than the conductive thread / conductive insert counterparts, but you’ll just have to try it to find out for sure.

          Thanks! I think I’ll check them out

    Absolutely love these getups, and especially when they have amazing deals like these herringbone pants… AND I can choose my inseam so I can avoid tailoring!!! Thanks so much for putting these together Andrew! 🙂

    • Brendan

      Love the pants, but can’t get them in my size at Lands End. Anywhere else with a comparable?

  • Rob


    I have been looking for a nice pair of gloves forever. I just got these in the post today. They fit perfect, look great, keep my hands warm and work well with my iPhone. Thank you so much for this suggestion. Keep up the great work.

  • ThomasRankin

    dig the product selection Andrew. great mix of brands as well.

    just discovering Primer now, BTW. i like it.


  • Cameron

    Looks like the herringbone pants are no longer available. Any other options in a similar price range?
