Driving gloves?
 
Does anyone know where I can find a good, thin set of leather driving gloves? I purchased these (below) years ago, and somehow lost them over the Christmas celebrations this past week ... thus far they've not wound up in a lost and found or in any friends homes :(
I really liked them and would like to find an exact replacement, but haven't been able to locate a source.

These look very similar, but are also unavailable:

Suggestions / recommendations?

go to Sports Authority, Dick's Sporting and get some black batting gloves. I have a pair of Under Armor that I think I paid $20 for. They work great, I used them during Autocross season.

Unfortunately, it looks like those gloves have been discontinued and replaced with these :

Of course, they are 4 times the price !

I picked up my gloves here :

These might be a nice alternative :

The new Porsche gloves look good, but appear to be too thick for my taste. I like thin & light.
I did stroll over to the local sporting goods store and found a set of batting gloves for a great deal that will work nicely... Thanks for the tip!
