Ben,

Velo Orange has perforated leather bar wrap:

As for the gloves, thanks to everyone who has responded, both on and off list. The results could be categorized: Legendary/Mythic/Dreamer: Dromarti, Rapha, Detto Pietro, Gant (isn't this just French for "glove"?) and Tufo. Good But Unavailable: Nashbar (small only), AGU (XL only), Velo Orange (in development?). Apparently Available/Affordable: Giant, Rivendell, plus 3 more I found online: Push, Planet Bike Taurus, Aero Tech. Honorable Mention: Two members offered to sell from their stock of NOS gloves, and one suggested the Altura crochet mitt, which has a synthetic leather palm.

For what it's worth: I think Brooks would do well to add a classic-style glove to their product line.
