Luvaria Ulisses

Leather Gloves

This sliver of a storefront was first opened in 1925 and has sold one thing and one thing only ever since: gloves. A snug walk-up counter in Chiado displaying a colorful array of gloves, Luvaria Ulisses is one of those local favorites that focuses on making and selling a singular product. (There are still many of them in town.) The attentive staff here offers a variety of styles. Unlined gloves in plain leather are the least expensive at 49 Euros, but there are also trendy perforated motorcycle gloves, others done up with contrasting cuffs, and ones that button up the side. If you have the time, you can work with the shop to have a custom pair made. Bonus: repairs are free.
