YOU'RE WITH ME, LEATHER:

Esquire Endorses: The Wilson A2000 Baseball Glove: It's not just a baseball glove. It's the single greatest piece of sporting equipment ever built. (Scott Raab , 11/14/08, Esquire)

I never fell in love until I had enough kale to buy a good glove and found my first Wilson A2000. My God--it was Michael Corleone and Apollonia, the thunderbolt, in leather yet. It wouldn't transform me into a graceful fielder--no wedding of form and function could've accomplished that--but wearing it made me feel like a better ballplayer. Plus, it smelled great.
