Just dug out my favorite gloves of all time. Rocket Power Parts Gloves, rocket red in colour. I guess from around 1994 or 1995, produced other bits and bobs as well. Long since closed down but so cool.....(in fact I thought they where so cool I had a tatoo done on my leg!)

Great Tattoo!

I love these gloves too! my original pair from back in the day are still going strong apart from a tiny hole in the thumb and I have a pair of Chargers that I still use :)

I have two NOS pairs of Chargers in Large (one blue and one grey) kicking around in the cupboard too....plus an assortment of stickers!

Cheers
Stu

Some of my old favorites:

The Rocket socks date back to 94-95 too and to this day they are my my regular summer socks. This includes 6 years in the Middle east with 12 month of summer a year. Making socks that are still going strong after 15 years of excellent service is not a good business model I guess.

Enjoy!!
