For those desiring the simple life, we present the Giro Bravo Gloves. They're still pretty high-tech compared to your uncle's work gloves, but they're about as simple as cycling gloves can get.
The back is an attractive, four-way stretch, wicking fabric. The palm is made of three Clarino synthetic leather panels. They're shaped nicely for your hands and can be thrown in the washer and dryer without much thought. The padding is 4mm thick EVA foam, like many gloves on the market, but the pads are spread around the hand to the pressure points rather than gathered in the middle.
The Giro Bravo Gloves are available in Black/charcoal, Red/black, and White/grey/charcoal. They come in four sizes from Small to X-Large. There are low-profile Velcro closures on both wrists, and Giro includes a microfiber wiping surface on the thumb.

Worth the 50%-off price. Maybe.

These aren't padded enough esp. on the palm/wrist area where nerves are exposed to keep your hands from getting numb during an hour ride. Trying to find some like my old Treks that use traditional foam instead of gel. No luck with that.
