It’s always about uncompromising quality. Patient, exacting, and artistic. Exquisite work forged by generations of experience, done only by hand, to the time-honored excellence of multi-generational craftsmen. Using all of their tactile senses: smelling, feeling, and viewing each skin ensures that each Corsa Miglia glove is made to the highest standard.
Italian driving gloves are a utilitarian work of art. Fit is most important for driving gloves, most drivers desire a proper, snug fit. A well-cut glove should not lengthen but must be able to expand enough to allow a convenient introduction of the hand and subsequent reshaping for a conforming, bespoke fit. Points such as knuckles and phalanxes should always mold exactly to the individual hand, hence the proverbial expression, “FITS LIKE A GLOVE”. Once the choice hides are selected, the cutting of the glove is performed with the same craftsmanship that has served as the gold standard for over a hundred years.
Careful manual measurement calculates the degree of elasticity, which varies from skin to skin, as well as inside the same skin, depending on the anatomical part considered. For each glove, the elasticity is lower in the neck, the croup is average, and it is greatest in the ventral part. This complex variability, not easy to evaluate, employs all of the craftsman’s skills and experience. After the cutting, and the consequent shearing of the fingers, made with steel molds, we castor assemble the various parts such as inches and forks which are leather inserts interposed between the fingers. CORSA MIGLIA continues to maintain the history and artistry of producing gloves in Italy, by hand.
