Acceptable? Just so I know.
not even in tha eighatees.
despite having that song stuck in my head every time I looked at the thread title, what's wrong with me?
that would make no sense.
Practical AND cosy
fingerless gloves are awesome, i hate having stupid wooly fingers that can't do anything, but i like having warm hands. best of both worlds!
if you're taking photos they are also awesome, no fumbling around with dials/settings
Flatmates seriously need to be less stingy with the heating already
got them cheap at Primark and are very handy when texting or picking things up. Little chilly but worth it. Plus I feel like a pickpocket when I wear them.
amazing, magically keep your fingers warm despite the lack of fingers and you can actually hold/open stuff, do look a bit homeless though but the homeless have them for a reason they are practical people

I'd been thinking about them yesterday in a cinema trailer way, you know, deep voice, "Gloves Without Fingers at a cinema near you soon"
Although has to be the right gloves - these Mountain Warehouse ones are just falling to pieces. Bullshit
were fingers cut off gloves or added ?
only it was just rich people that could afford the full fingers while the poor bought fingerless.
no practical reason either, unless you have ickle stubby fingers to begin with

ive had a long day
Thinking about getting/"making" some. I'd like to have warm hands but i'd also like to be able roll cigarettes. Hm.
it's the thumb and index fingers that get chilly I find, everything else is fine.
are the bits that get cold. The fuck is the point in them at all?
would say that.
They actually keep your fingers just as warm.
which you tuck away when you're not using them.
Even the very tips, are just as warm. They simply don't have an opportunity to get cold in our normal (winter) climate when one is wearing them. Perhaps, say you go to the Antarctic, yes then you'll need gloves that cover the whole hands. But the proximity of the finger-tips to the bit which is getting warmed means the tips will never get cold in usual life when wearing fingerless gloves.
mine get cold when I'm wearing my fingerless gloves, my thumb and index finger.
Maybe the full glove is appropriate to people with poorer circulation than the average, idk. But I've never experienced cold fingers in fingerless gloves, anyway.
perhaps that was my downfall?
like I say, I just tuck my fingers in when not texting/picking things up.
you're talking shite.
GREAT when you're out and about. One minute you have mittons on, the next you're able to fish out change from a bin.
i mean in terms of keeping warm at all times surely they're the experts.
They are practical yet snug as a bug.
If they're leather, then thats double trouble.
they make a man look like he should have saggy eyes, smoke roll ups exclusively and be really dismissive of anyone who doesn't like reggae
if you're a tramp standing round a burning oil drum.
But only then.
They are a total saviour when working in a cold office.
Plus I love feeling a bit like Fagin as often as possible.
results: extremely underwhelming. my fingertips are so cold. colder than before.
also the fact that part of my hand is colder than other parts of my hand is making me really really angry.
men with fingerless gloves most likely refer to themselves as 'creatives'. I.e. dickheads.
who describe themselves as "creatives"?
except he described himself in the singular.
And had fingerless gloves.
who claimed to have 'made' his own gloves. on further enquiry it turned out that he just cut up his gloves to make them fingerless. definitely a 'creative'.

Very useful for the iPhone/any other phone with capacitive touch screen owner.
I have ones made of alpaca. FROM PERU.
you know, like finger caps. After all, it's the fingers that get cold, not the palms of your hands?!?!?
