The free personalization of these gloves is an added bonus.
The suede Texas Irons Personalized BBQ Grilling Gloves are some of the best-looking gloves I tested.
They feature full grain leather in a soft suede finish with an “air-cushioned” soft cotton lining and 16 inch sleeves. To dress them up even more, the manufacturer offers a nice touch of optional free etching of three letters of your choice, plus a choice of four optional leather patch labels: Steakhouse & Barbecue, Vineyard, Longhorn Bar & Grill, and Ranch House Premium. The gloves can be wiped clean with a wet cloth, hung by leather loops to dry, and come in one size that is suitable for large hands.
