As parts of the world begin to re-open (or shut again) it’s time to have a serious think about how PPE will be a part of both our wardrobe and our lives in the future.

Of course, masks have become a wardrobe staple, with brands of all sizes and backgrounds shifting their focus to these face-covering pieces, but it’s easier to forget how gloves can protect us from both hot spots, or from sanitizing our hands into scaly oblivion.

With winter firmly set in, the Highsnobiety editors have had enough time to perfect the seasonal wardrobe. And at a time when we’ve all become hyper-aware of how dangerous it now is to touch anything, we’ve put a new level of consideration into the humble glove as a staple accessory.

Here, we’ve rounded up some options from expedition-ready warmers to high-fashion flexes that will give your fits some tactical flavor while keeping you healthy.

Browse the best gloves for fall below.
