Grifter Company is a lifestyle brand focused on stylish quality made goods. We blend street styling confidence with vintage bravura.
Grifter Company set out to make gloves that represent who we are when we ride, while simultaneously respecting those individuals who made them. We couldn’t reconcile good workmanship with a fresh look from other brands so we considered making our own. And this led us to Gloversville, New York.
Gloversville is a once storied industrial town, at the turn of the century known as the glove manufacturing capital of the world. The old ways of making quality leather goods are still a part of Gloversville, and there we’ve partnered with a glove maker who is bringing our vision to life. The high quality leathers we value are still tanned nearby, so close we hand select them from the tannery weekly. And, most critically, the glove makers themselves are still there. Every set of gloves we sell was hand-sewn by a skilled American.
Grifter Company aims to change the moto wear game by celebrating the individual rider, man or woman, and creating distinctive styles that reflect the forward-thinking minds defining today’s scene. Moto culture doesn’t have to be limited to black leathers and a soft-tail bagger (though if that’s what you’re into – fine by us), and we’ve noticed female riders haven’t been given much to work with for gloves. We’re motivated by the new wave of moto culture and evolving look of today’s riders.
