The Direction Mitts are dominated by strong lines, created by the 3x1 ribbing and an arrow-like motif on the palm. The striking aesthetic is complemented by the mitts’ practical elements: the long cuffs ensure the fingerless mitts stay tucked into coats or sleeves on cool days, and the ribbing creates a close-fitting but elastic fabric.
