Clueless Sister-in-law Needs Help!

Hey all you sailor-pros .

I am hoping to buy some sailing gloves for my brothers-in-law and husband for Xmas. They all sail about once a year at a camp we visit each summer, so I don't want to hear that real men don't need gloves and all that - if you only sail once a year it gives you blisters. We live in Indiana, but the camp is on a glacier lake in Wisconsin.

Also, because they pretty much only sail in the summer, I don't need weather resistant gloves - gloves that cut off at the knuckles are probably fine.

I've done a little research of my own, but honestly am not sure where to start looking. What brands would you recommend? These boys like to be spoiled so I'd like to get them some nice, cool-looking (they are in their 20s and care about appearance ) gloves.

Can you help me out?

Let me know if you need any more info to make a suggestion, and thanks a bunch!
