Fusing authentic American heritage with a contemporary Japanese design aesthetic, Elmer Gloves offer truly high-quality handwear. The brand’s roots go way back to 1893, when a small US company named Elmer Little & Sons was established, appropriately enough, in Gloversville, New York. As you might have guessed from its name, the city was America’s undisputed glove-making capital. Elmer was at the forefront, building an enviable reputation for their superior work and dress gloves, though they also made everything from ski gloves to baseball mitts. The company grew steadily throughout the decades before being eventually acquired by the Japanese Swany Corporation in the 1980s.
Building on Elmer’s legacy of fine craftsmanship, Swany moved the brand into the performance sportswear market, introducing technical fabrics and innovative designs. Today, they’ve gained a cult following among fashionistas and skiers alike. Which means that whether you’re heading out onto city streets or Alpine slopes, with a pair of Elmers, you’re in safe hands.
