The queen of England loves to wear them and with good reason. Gloves protect our hands from the elements, giving them the feeling of being on a perpetual Summer vacation.
The best place to buy gloves is a small store in downtown Lisbon called Luvaria Ulisses. It has, since 1925, offered a large selection of gloves, so we can always find a pair that is perfect for us. Every time we leave the store, wearing new, elegant gloves we find Winter more appealing.
Luvaria Ulisses is located on Rua do Carmo, 87-A, tel. 213420295, email: firstname.lastname@example.org.

So love this shop, its a lovely throw back to the last century, in 1925 it would be just place for any Portuguese roaring twenties flappers to buy their evening gloves. You place your elbow on a little round leather cushion, you can catch a glimpse of it in the photo, your hand is held up while the assistant smooths on leather gloves in your size. Need a little stretch on the fingers they have a delightful little tool spreader to do the job, perfect!
But I so hate it when Her Britannic Majesty is referred to as the Queen of England, there is not such person. Her complete title In English: Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God, of Great Britain, Ireland and the British Dominions beyond the Seas Queen, Defender of the Faith
In Latin: Elizabeth II, Dei Gratia Magnae Britanniae, Hiberniae et terrarum transmarinarum quae in ditione sunt Britannica Regina, Fidei Defensor. So now you know.
We’re now much better prepared to meet Her Britannic Majesty, should the occasion arise. Thanks!
