Today goes by a lot of names.

In the Northeast, “Snowmaggedon.”

In North Dakota, “Tuesday.”

Regardless, it’s glove weather across most of these United States. Warm glove weather.

We’ve got just the pair: Grifter.

Grifter is based in upstate New York, where one of your correspondents recently survived spinning out of control down an icy hill in a Zipcar. Point is, they know from cold up there.

Grifter’s leather mitts offer a mix of street style, moto culture and, as they say, “vintage bravura.”

And warmth.

A few we liked:

The Onyx Ranger: Your winter glove. Wool-lined with a longer cuff, mixed with selvedge black denim and black deerskin.

The Ranger: More stylish, these unlined but soft bison-skin gloves are paired with 12-oz. American Cone white selvedge denim to add some stiffness.

The Masterson: Not gloves, but a distressed, heavy-gauge bison leather vest lined with orange duck canvas. Named after “American gunslinger, gambler and buffalo hunter Bat Masterson.”

Bonus: they’re all made and sourced in the U.S.A.

Grifter also offers an array of beanies, trucker hats and, if you like color, “The Bandoleros,” a Mexican serape-patterned suede glove.

That’ll stick out in the snow.
