The Outlierman, a Bologna, Italy-based accessories company, launched two new driving gloves. The perforated suede driving gloves and fingerless leather gloves are part of the Bad One collection.

"As every driving enthusiast knows, grip and feel are key ingredients of every great drive," says Andrea Mazzuca, founder of The Outlierman. "A car's tyres and steering provide those pleasures, but a good pair of driving gloves can heighten those sensations to another level and enhance every road trip no matter how long or short.

Featuring black Nappa leather and red suede back, the perforated driving gloves are crafted in Italy. The suede back is meant to recall the interior of sports cars while the red is emblematic of the passion of racing. Leather perforation ensures a level of breathability.

Also handcrafted in Italy, the fingerless leather driving gloves are made of Nappa lamb skin. The gloves are slightly perforated to ensure breathability and feature what The Outlierman calls "bold traits for a unique style".

Buyers recieve their gloves in a handmade leather case that offers protection.

The Outlierman sells the gloves in a variety of sizes. Buyers can use the sizing tool on the company's website to ensure fit is proper.

The perforated suede driving gloves are priced at €280 and the fingerless leather driving gloves are priced at €220. They can be purchased at TheOutlierman.com.

Nuts & Bolts

 
 

Lexus has one of the best reputations as a brand, according to new research.

Reputation.com has ranked North America's automotive brands. Each brand was scored, with the industry average coming in at 594, the highest of any industry Reputation.com measures. However, it's not all sunshine and roses.

The industry's average dropped from February 2020's score of 603. Reputation.com says that the lower average is driven by a decrease in review volume due to Google suspending reviews for weeks in the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. During the health crisis, Reputation.com found that a dealership's valet service is the top new driver of positive sentiment while dealership hygiene is the key driver of negative sentiment. Overall, price-related complains constitute the second-highest factor driving negative sentiment, behind service.

Nissan retained its ranking as the top dog with its Reputation Score nearly the same today as it was in February. Mitsubishi had the highest increase over the February rankings (up 54 points) while Cadillac's score dropped the most (down 45 points).

Tesla had a hard go of it. While consumers tend to like their Tesla cars, the company has the lowest rate for responding to negative reviews and lowest engagement scores, as well as worst for pricing and speed of service.

Here's a look at the brand rankings, from worst to first.

Jeep Jamboree events allow Jeep drivers to off-road and enjoy the comraderie that comes with owning the same style of vehicle.

The dates and locations of the 2021 Jeep Jamboree schedule have been announced. The roster includes 31 events, with a new event in Ohio making the calendar as well as a three-day event in Missouri.

Jeep Jamborees are weekend events that have been a part of the Jeep lifestyle since 1953. It was then, in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, that Mark A. Smith (now a member of the Off-Road Hall of Fame and the Explorers Club) arranged an off-roading expedition across the Rubicon Trail. The following year Willys, the original Jeep manufacturer got involved and the rest, as they say, is history.

Each Jeep Jamboree is a family-oriented four-wheel drive adventure that allows for fun for everyone from novices to experts. Organizers advise that any Jeep with a 4-LO transfer case can participate. The style of Jamboree varies by event: Classic, Select, Signature, and Adventure. Be sure you research the event style ahead of registering so you know what to expect, including the cost, which varies by event.
