Lost Glove #54

leather work glove in weeds by wooden fence

I had an "off-site meeting" this afternoon and ran across this specimen on my way back from the park^Wmeeting.

In other lost-glove-related news, there's another lost glove blog out there. Mange Tout's Lost Gloves seems to be London-based despite the Francophone alias. It's amazing how little the style of gloves found varies across national boundaries.

Update: Mange Tout kindly informs me in comments that my location guess was off by 70 miles with the real location being on the south coast of England.

Cheers Jeff. Yes, I was surprised too at the similarity of the gloves we're finding; I guess it boils down to most of them being cheap imports from somewhere or other.

PS... (not that it matters) I'm based on the south coast of England - about 70 miles from London - although I anticipate that by USA geographical standards, this probably sounds like it's right on the doorstep.
