The whole concept of driving gloves is alien to me. Gloves are usually something I put on to protect my hands from freezing or being cut or bruised. It is the one article of clothing I always remove when I get in a car, not one I put on. If you are not driving a dump truck or on a race track I see no need for them.
Wife: "Can we go now?"
Husband: "No. Not until I find my gloves."
Wife: "Here, here's some gloves."
Husband: "No, not those gloves. My $222 knit-back, leather-palmed Ferrari driving gloves! You don't expect me to maneuver this car without them do you?"
Maybe I'm out of line but I'm disillusioned with Ferrari licensed mechandise. I was just at a Ferrari "boutique" in Singapore and a T-shirt was over $150. What!?!?
For $200 I can get 100 pairs of gloves in China that will work just fine. It will cost a little extra if you want them to say Ferrari.
