Driving Round The Midwest

I've spent the month of October driving back and forth between Chicago and Milwaukee for work.  I've made the trip about four times now with another three or four to go.  On the first drive up, taking the back roads, I came across one of my favorite Frank Lloyd Wright homes, the Ward Willits house in Highland Park, Illinois.  

Of course, I can't do all this driving and not have a pair of Steve McQueen inspired driving gloves.  SO, I've splurged and got a pair of Dents gloves through Mr. Porter. "Dents gloves are made in Wiltshire, UK, using methods which have changed little since the company was founded (in 1777.) The gloves are cut by hand from premium leather, and there are 32 different operations involved in the production of each pair." 

...True, this week's rental is a white, 90's era Lincoln Town Car and not an Aston Martin V12 Vantage that these gloves are screaming for, BUT, one does what one can!
