Where can I buy leather gloves in Zurich?

Hi all, I am wondering where I can buy leather gloves in Zurich? I'm willing to pay for a decent pair which will last a while. I've had a look around, but haven't come across any, even though I see people wearing them all the time!

The skin on my hands is the type which drives and cracks easily in the cold - so in the winter it starts to look as though I've been participating in a bit too much bareknuckle boxing.

If anyone knows, I'd be grateful!

PS: Just to clarify, I'm male, so need gloves to fit man sized hands...

Make sure you ask for 'hand shoes' or no one will have a clue what you're on about....

Re: Where can I buy leather gloves in Zurich?

It depends what kind you want. Tight fit or winter comfy. For the latter, the price will tell you most of what you need to know about quality. For tight fit, I must say something that some people here won't like: I've found the best ones in a sex shop. Six years ago, still wearing them, just perfect.

Most department stores, and just about every shop on the Bahnhofstrasse:

Good luck with your inquiry!

For warm winter fur gloves, near Stauffacher:

They don't show gloves on their website but should have plenty! Not sure if they have other ones as well...
