Michael Jackson Glove by La Crasia

As Michael Jackson prepared to kick off his worldwide tour this year, he chose Brooklyn glove manufacturer La Crasia to make his signature silver glove.

In honor of Jackson's life, supermodel Agyness Deyn wears the La Crasia glove on the cover of Harper's Bazaar Fall Fashion issue. The silver glove has made its mark on pop culture, and fast--for a limited time following Jackson's death, Facebook users were able to send each other a virtual silver Jackson glove.

La Crasia is still making the silver Jackson glove. You can order it for $40 plus shipping ($5 flat rate to anywhere in the US). The exterior of the glove is encrusted with sequins, so the glove is not the most comfortable in the world. Also, the glove sheds sequins from time to time, so wearing the glove everyday is, unfortunately, a no-no. Wearing the glove to parties is, however, a daring go-go.
