I just don't get why people wear that in Winter. Why wear gloves if it's not going to cover up your fingers? http://forums.macresource.com/smileys/dunno.gif

Lara wears them purely for grip and such. :D

So, share your opinions on pointless clothing. :p

I wear those thank ya very much and the reason is because if I don't then my hands blow up from getting to hot with normal gloves, normally my hands are always cold to there a great way to keep my hands semi warm without issues.. Plus not only that but they appeal to me more than "normal,plain" gloves.

Also helps they were a gift from my bro who was in the Army so yeah. I don't find em pointless at all.

I wear them for work (albeit a lot more heavy duty, kevlar based ones), full fingered gloves are too clumsy and you can't grip things properly, same with "tac" styled gloves where they have only the first two fingers cut off.

They are pointless if you want to stay warm however. I quite often wear flight gloves with a pair of fingerless over the top as the flight gloves are really thin.

I have ones where they have an extra piece of material that flaps over so if my fingers get too cold I can make my gloves into mittens and have warm fingers! Genius idea! :D

It's just that my mum wears them for no apparent reason. When I ask her, she says, "fashion". :p

I do find it wierd that people use the keffiyeh as a fashion accessory now. I have one (techically it's a shemagh i suppose) that i use to block out the wind when outdoors/airsofting (WAY better than a scarf)...but just flopping one across your shoulders makes you look like a total idiot.

I've never saw anyone around here wear one in public, didn't even reconize what it was until I google searched the name, must have forgotten the original name years back. I can see the purpose it would serve for people serving, but I don't see why people would wanna wear them as a fashion statement. hehe

Fingerless gloves aren't pointless at all... I wear them for cycling to get a better grip. They have to be a good make though -- and tough.
They're so useful. I use them in winter for duties because we aren't allowed to wear your average material gloves.

I can't really think of anything accessory that is pointless at the moment.

Fashion over function.

Style over substance.

Fašade over trueness.

As always.

Everything you wear that's not a piece of cloth or fur wrapped around you constitutes "fashion over function".

I have to wear fingerless gloves to be able to use my phone's touchscreen. :p Also, they do keep you warm because your palms are kept warm and the warm blood passes to your fingertips and back.

I wish my phone didnt have the screen though, because I think the gloves look ridiculous. xD

I think they look like gloves a homeless person would be left with too! :o Hence why I rarely wear gloves at all and end up catching colds, dammit

People who want to keep their hands warm, yet still have the ability to use their fingers, use fingerless gloves. If you're in a cold office, they are nice because you still need to be able to type. Also practical for someone like Lara, who needs to be able to utilize her fingers, but still have protection from sliding down ropes, etc.

I love fingerless gloves. Regular gloves limit finger function.

One thing I remember when I was a kid was one of my grandpa's sisters having fingerless gloves in her car. I always thought of these gloves as intended for driving, even if I never saw anyone else using them since the eighties.

The idea of swinging around a horizontal pole with full gloves is horrifying, I just imagine slipping off and flying into my death. Fingerless gloves allow the stickiness and grip of your skin to hold onto bars.

Yeah, I wear those. When I'm working outside, so I can grab things easier but my hands don't freaze or when I go rollerblading or skateboarding and such. It's not pointless. You've obviously never used them before. :rolleyes:

Come on, guys. I'm sure Mikky gets it by now: fingerless gloves have some practical uses. I'm sure he meant people who wear fingerless gloves for no real purpose, just as a fashion accessory instead.

There's no need to be rude.

I think jeggings are silly.

In my own view, there isn't any pointless accessory...as everyone wears something for a reason...whether that's making them feel better about themselves, to make a statement, to make them look good, or to follow others. Or for just plain handiness (e.g fingerless gloves and I-pod touch/I-Phone or cycling)
