Founded in 1777 in a humble wooden house in Worcester, England where John Dent began his career as a master glove maker. The fit on Dents gloves come from two separate processes where the lining and the outer leather shell actually manufactured separately.
To make a pair of gloves, it takes at least four hours per pair with 32 individual operations to cut, stretch and sew. Leather is cut by hand and lining knitted. The glove it entirely hand-sewn by needle and thread.
One of the hardest and most expensive parts to stitch is the “quirk” of the glove: a diamond-shaped piece sewn into the base of the finger area and must be sewn with a magnifying glass and held in place using tweezers. Quirks allow for greater range of movement and take stress off glove seams.
We’re excited to carry Dents gloves here at Khaki’s of Carmel in calfskin and deerskin, all cashmere lined.
