As debutante presentations and Carnival balls approached, I knew I needed a pair of white, kid gloves (in addition to a vast reserve of long black dresses.) If you haven't been to one of these events, in addition to wearing floor-length, formal dresses, women -- debutantes and those in the front row -- wear white, opera-length kid-leather gloves.

I thought I already had a wonderful pair of white opera-length kid-leather gloves: Years ago, my mother had given me her vintage, circa 1950s pair. Even though I had used them vigorously for costumes, and had them restored, I thought they were in good enough shape. Not so, when I pulled them out -- the fingertips were worn down a little, and I think those years of using them for costumes had aged them. Back into the costume rotation they went, and now I had to purchase a pair.

There is another form of measurement for gloves: "buttons," whether they have buttons or not. Derived from French, the exact measure is a bit longer than one inch. For example, wrist-length gloves are eight-button; elbow, 16-button; and opera, 22. As most people do not know this type of measurement, and pre-made gloves are made a consistent length, these measurements do not often come into play.

I initially went online (mainly eBay) to see pricing for my opera-length, kid-gloves, because I had heard were expensive. While there were good buys -- anywhere from $9.99 (for a pair of well-worn wrist) to $47.99 to $102 (opera), most that I saw were vintage and gently worn. Each of my choices had photographs -- some better than others -- and pretty good descriptions. But after reviewing them, I would say that like my mother's pair, most just didn't look quite right. (But I highly recommend going online if you want a pair for a costume!) Locally, prices range for women $75 to $132 for wrist; $255 elbow, and $198 to $330 for opera.

A season of Carnival balls and presentations can take a pristine pair of white, kid-leather gloves and make them look like they were found on Bourbon Street. Cocktails, food, pens, lipstick, foundation, eyeliner -- anything that can possibly mark, stain and soil your gloves -- will do so.

In New Orleans, gloves and Carnival balls are inevitable, like formal attire. And, New Orleanians are known far and wide for wearing gloves. For example, I will refer to a story a friend told me: A man from New Orleans traveled to Florence, Italy, and while there, he decided to purchase a pair of white, kid-leather gloves for himself. When the man asked if the store had them, the owner replied, "You must be from New Orleans or Vienna." (Vienna is the another famed city where the men are required to wear white gloves during debutante balls.)

Last but not least, as you know batting gloves are our main product and it's important to understand that batting gloves don't last forever. Batting gloves wear out faster for some players than they do for others. In fact, we have college and pro players who brag that our gloves last more than 2 weeks, but we also have parents of 12-year-olds that get upset when they don't last for 2 seasons. What we have learned is that everyone has different expectations based on their prior experience. However, it's important to consider that as players grow, they start to sweat more, swing harder, train longer etc. which affects the wear and tear on the gloves. So a 13u or 14u player who used to only go through 1 pair of batting gloves a season may start to go through 4 or 5 pairs of Franklins a season, but only 2 pairs of BRUCE BOLT BGs. The point is that we just ask our players and parents to be reasonable with their expectations and understand that our goal was to make the highest quality and best fitting gloves in the market and that the durability was just a natural extension of that. If our goal was to make "bulletproof" gloves, we would have made them out of Kevlar :).

In the 1950s and early 1960s, the age of white gloves, fashion catered to the chic woman who bought expensive couture clothes, wore them to elegant cocktail parties, and prescribed them for their daughters for their debutante balls. After the assassinations of the 60s, the battles over desegregation, the beginning of the Vietnam War, and the advent of the youth protest movement, young people seemed to be everywhere, in miniskirts, black turtlenecks, and above all, jeans. In the space of a few years, the fashion mood changed with the market: a more elegant outlook aimed at an older clientele was overwhelmed by the rebellious mood of the baby boom generation, whose large numbers and prosperity enabled them to dictate an almost anti-fashion attitude. Young women refused to "come out", the Beatles replaced Lester Lanin, and the fox trot was succeeded by the twist. White gloves, the symbol of an older generation, were discarded.

Second, if it was an evening, formal party, long gloves were worn. Long gloves are called full length or opera gloves. How long they were was dictated by the sleeve of your gown. Strapless or sleeveless called for the longest gloves, up over your bicep. Short-sleeve gowns called for a bit shorter gloves, but still over the elbow. The gloves were also made of the dress fabric, silk or kid leather. The leather gloves necessitated the use of powder to draw them on, but oh are they soft!
