    The driving gloves shown are very "low" design and probably lack function. My ordinary driving gloves operate the touch screen functions fine.

    I ordered a pair of those gloves today. I saw them at Tesla's Monterey CA event this past August, tried them on, and liked them.

    Will try to remember to post here again after I receive the gloves.

    I just got the gloves and love them. Very nice leather and understated. The snap has an elegant Tesla logo on it and the word Tesla appears as a tag on the inside stitching of one of the gloves. My wife loves her pair as well.

    I found they are cut on the large side. I wear other gloves size large but the L from Tesla was way too big. I've sent it back and am waiting for a medium in exchange.

    I got my gloves and they are great. Got the large size which is my normal glove size and they fit fine.

    Good to hear, I ordered the large. I'm doing the same thing I did when I ordered my last car, I.e. Bide my time waiting by ordering merchandise. If tesla delivered the cars faster they would lose out on merchandise sales.

    I've got a birthday coming up, just in case anyone out there feels like....

    ...oh, wait. That note was supposed to go to my wife.

    Serious: how well does the touch-screen function work?

    I have no problem operating the touch screen with the gloves on. I use my right index finger.
