Having done a little searching, good gloves and liners, are going to cost close to fifty bucks, which I expected and those Merino wool liners look good especially if I put them inside a pair of Mid West gloves for shoveling.
Although a pair of Olson Deepak or American-made Buffalo, are worth checking into but I absolutely have to try on any pair of gloves I buy.
I have been checking on a pair of true dress gloves, but that are tough enough for more than looking good, if the shite hits the fan while on the road, and prices start right about 75 dollars but if you get the real foo-foo ones, prices starting at 130 some dollars, they need special treatments and from what I have seen , some of the best you are paying for name and country of origin, not better gloves.
The first pair of works gloves listed on Lt. Dave's first linked site looks real good as they have rough leather but you have to ask for a price quote, which is odd.
I learned some years ago, synthetic winter gloves are crap as they get slick if cold and wet, and when you throw a shove of snow, with a grip less shove, the whole sheban, snow and shovel goes flying out of your hands, so I will never get a non-leather outer glove again.
