Leather work gloves are becoming more and more popular in the office as they become more wearable and less bulky, and they also are becoming less expensive, according to a new report from the Consumer Reports Institute.
The report said leather work shoes have seen a slight decline in the past decade and that work gloves have been gaining in popularity.
However, the leather work hand glove trend is not just a recent phenomenon.
Leather work boots and work gloves were the most popular footwear items in the 1970s and 1980s.
In recent years, however, both leather work work boots are losing ground.
The report said the main reason for the decline in leather work footwear is because the quality of the materials has declined.
The institute surveyed more than 4,500 U.S. adults and found that more than one in five (21%) said they wore a leather glove or leather work boot for work, up from 11% in 2010.
Leatherwork boots have become increasingly popular over the last decade and more and fewer people are wearing leather work boots.
The number of adults wearing leatherwork shoes declined by about 8% from 2013 to 2014.
The survey also found that people who work in the manufacturing and manufacturing-related industries were the least likely to use leatherwork work shoes or leatherwork boots for work.
Nearly half of respondents (48%) said their work environment did not allow them to wear leatherwork or leatherworker work boots, compared to 31% of people who did not work in these industries.
