Now, there are a million and ten places you can go to quickly buy a pair of store-bought mittens to keep your hands “warm” this winter. I’m here to tell you that they won’t be worth it.

Great collection. Lots of variety to choose from ranging from tiny kiddos to adults. The art deco mittens would be a good choice for guys if you know any that prefer mittens over gloves. I dont think there are too many that would though because of the restriction in the hand usage. Great reference article.
