Made-to-order Lavabre Cadet gloves – Everlasting Model

**Please notice, this was a one-off collaboration and is not out there**

French storied producer Lavabre Cadet makes the best gloves I’ve ever worn – however they don’t have many retailers, significantly not of their full vary of skins and finishes.

As a step in direction of correcting that, we’re launching a joint collaboration right now between Everlasting Model, Lavabre Cadet and Anderson & Sheppard.

A variety of gloves I’ve chosen can be out there made-to-order (MTO) by means of the Everlasting Model store. And for these in London, Anderson & Sheppard can be providing them in Clifford Avenue, alongside samples of the leathers and sizes.

[Ordering online is done through emailing me at [email protected] to verify particulars, after which fee on the Everlasting Model store web page.]


The scale is essential, as a result of certainly one of Lavabre Cadet’s promoting factors is the very fact it gives quarter sizes – the place just about everybody else solely has half sizes.

So people who order can be despatched particulars on how one can measure their palms, and will properly discover a quarter-size match, giving them a greater match.

We additionally encourage individuals to hint their hand and embody it with their order, so the Lavabre atelier exterior Paris has all potential data.

We’ve intentionally picked three leathers for this collaboration to cowl a spread of worth factors (all costs ex-VAT):

  • Goatskin, black or brown: £160
  • Lambskin, black or brown: £250
  • Peccary, black, brown (pictured on me), cork or gray: £320


One of many issues I instantly discover within the peccary from Lavabre Cadet is how a lot softer it’s than the gloves I’ve had from different makers.

In actual fact, this peccary is so exhausting to pay money for that this MTO provide must be restricted to 5 pairs in every of the 4 colors.

That very same high quality of sourcing extends to the opposite leathers too – the goatskin and the lambskin. The lamb is barely softer than the child, however each really feel nicer than related hides from different makers.


When you’ve picked your leather-based, there are few different choices.

You possibly can have them lined in black or white silk, or in black or beige cashmere. The peccary can be unlined.

The development might be with the seams turned inwards (neater and dressier) or outwards (thicker and extra masculine). If outwards, they are often handstitched, for an additional £45. 

And at last, you’ll be able to add as much as 4 initials, on the within of the underside of the glove, for £22 (per glove).


It’s numerous choices, however these are the pleasures of made-to-order.

Above you’ll be able to see some fundamental examples of the colors (click on to enlarge, or proper click on and open in a brand new tab) and under are three examples displaying the 3 ways of ending the perimeters.

I’d significantly draw your consideration to the shut, cropped end of the seams on the outside-stitching building, which you’ll see most clearly on my gloves within the above photos.

That is one other attribute of Lavabre Cadet and one thing that makes this finely crafted mannequin far more elegant to put on.

If you want to order on-line please e-mail me at [email protected] to verify your particulars and obtain data on measuring. Fee will nonetheless be by means of the store web site.

Supply for the gloves is three weeks from ordering, so loads of time earlier than Christmas. The price of supply is roughly the identical as our polo shirts: EU £13, all over the place else £19.
