    I own a pair and they're superb. However, I can't seem to find many pictures of pilots wearing this. How come? Was it usually too cold for these? I found some pictures but they are more yellowish - was that due to all the dirt that accumulated on the gloves?

    This pilot seems to be wearing the same gloves:

    Blakeslee's gloves look similar, but much darker - is it just dirty?

    Does anyone have more pics/ info on these gloves, please?
