That's right, it's not a typo, there really is a new golf glove on the market that will set you back a staggering £60, but according to its French inventor LW Darrigrand, who it is named after, it will be the best investment you ever make.

Laurent Darrigrand decided to create his own tailor-made golf glove because he could not find the right size and sensations among regular gloves. Inspired by the characteristics of Formula 1 drivers' gloves, LW was specifically researched and developed to demanding technical levels never found before in golf gloves. LW is named after the velvet pieces providing the natural grip on the inside of the glove: L between the index finger and the palm, W between the remaining three gripping fingers. The skins come from leather shops based in Millau, in Southern France, known for their works and quality since the Middle-Ages.

The LW glove is made with highest grains of leather velvet and technical jerseys, LW marries your hand like a natural second skin. The natural velvet provides an unparalleled, effortless grip. In the palm of the glove, 8 specific velvet pieces are positioned at the ideal gripping positions, fitting the hand lines naturally. It is available in 9 different sizes each for lefties and righties, women and men.

The LW is made to last, washable without bleeding. Say goodbye to gloves hardened by sweat or rain!

Of course these unique advantages come at a price. Offered in many different colours and versions, LW is available for £60 on
