Last October was a very exciting time for Dents. As some of you may already know, a pair of our men's driving gloves made an appearance on the big screen, when they were worn by Daniel Craig himself in the latest James Bond film, Spectre.

And now the DVD has just been released, it's the perfect time to take a closer look at them...

We are proud to be a part of such a fantastic film franchise once again!

The suave hero can be seen wearing ‘Fleming‘ (style number 15-1007 – see what we did with those last 3 digits?), which is of course named after Ian Fleming, the author of the James Bond novels. Our glove appears during the funeral in Rome, and a driving scene at the end of the film. Many eagle-eyed viewers have already spotted it in the cinema – were you one of them?

Let’s take a look at the detailing. The unlined hairsheep leather driving gloves feature three machine stitched points on back, and an elasticated wrist on the palm. The glove’s perforated detailing – located along the front and back of the fingers and thumb, and across the palm – offers a decorative, yet practical element, allowing the glove to breathe. Interestingly, the strap has a different placing to most Dents gloves; it’s found at the edge of the cuff at the front, and features a Dents dome on the centre closure. This provides a somewhat unique take on our driving gloves, fit for Bond!


Bond’s huge fan base pay extremely close attention to the details of his impeccable attire…

But don’t just hear it from us! For a first-hand insight into the glove, why not hear what The Bond Experience, a website that is dedicated to all things 007, has to say in this video review? It talks about the gloves of Spectre, and gives an in-depth analysis of the ‘Fleming’ glove’s functionality, even taking them out for a test drive. Head over to 2 mins 48 secs…

“It’s tight so I could get a good grip on the steering wheel… It’s like that second skin”

We are honoured to be featured the Bond films once again. Back in 2012, a pair of our plain black ‘Bond‘ gloves were also worn by Daniel Craig in Skyfall during the London rooftop and Shanghai scenes the film, and they have proved to be a popular style ever since. Do you have a pair of your own?
