By all accounts and weather forecasts, it’s glove season just about everywhere in the Northern Hemisphere—even California has been seeing temps drop perilously close to “brisk.”

And your last line of defense against that bone-chilling frigidness: a good pair of finger-sweaters.

So we went ahead and surveyed all of the hand-sheltering options out there to help you find the right ones—and in our long tradition of telling you what your sartorial choices are saying about you, we’ve put together a handy guide.

Here’s what the way you’re bundling up your mitts says about you.

 
Leather Driving Gloves“There’s a matching silk scorpion jacket in my closet. (And my blue fedora is already in the mail.)”

 
Fingerless Gloves“I’m not a hobo, damn it—I have an iPhone.”

 
Leather and Knit Gloves“It was easier than choosing one or the other. (Commitment terrifies me.)”

 
Leather Mittens“I may or may not have a mean right hook, but my hands are warm as hell.”

 
Moncler Wool Gloves“No, I did not steal these from a schoolboy—they cost $100. Each.”
