There’s such a thing as a master glove maker, in case you didn’t know. In charge of selecting and preparing the finest leather for cutting, the master glove maker oversees the whole process of making a pair of fine leather gloves.
One of Kensington Bespoke’s brands, Chester Jefferies, has been making England’s finest gloves since 1936, and their company history is truly worthy of the word ‘heritage’. The name Jefferies was first associated with glove making in the UK in the 1820s, and the practice itself can be dated back to 14th Century North Dorset. There are still three family members involved in the business, including the third and fourth generations.
