I feel like some people might not be super down with these Single-Finger Zip Gloves from 99% IS, but those people are wrong. I want to live in an America where all citizens, regardless of race, religion, or gender, own 400 USD pairs of gloves that make them look like they're perpetually flipping the bird, because that's the kind of conspicuous consumption that makes this country great. I'm not sure how well these gloves actually function as gloves, but they certainly make a statement. I would recommend caution when waving. Strangers may not take kindly to you giving them the finger in the middle of the street. On the other hand, you might just make a new friend. You'll never know until you try. Although there is a good chance that trying will get you punched in the face by an offended passerby. At least you'll be wearing cool gloves when it happens. Unrelated, but culturally-relevant note: these gloves are the perfect accessories to rock in your fan-made sing along video for Beyoncé's "Sorry". Middle fingers up, put them hands high, et cetera, et cetera. I refuse to pay for Tidal or any other streaming service, so I'm barely aware of things in our society now. Are people still listening to that "Somebody That I Used To Know" song? -RB
