Textures and visual flow are always important factors in GoodforaBoy designs. I am often first inspired by the visual appeal of a stitch pattern, and then design a piece fitting that aesthetic feeling. Something quite intuitive must be translated into a workable appealing pattern. In these gauntlets, active ziggurat chevrons on the hands are vibrant set against the sleek linearity of the elongated wrist, making this a great unisex piece.

GAUGE
