Hilts-Willard Glove Co.

Hilts-Willard Glove Co.

Hilts-Willard created and patented the "golf glove" in the 1930s, which quickly became the industry standard, and expanded into a whole line of athletic gloves, an exciting new market. During WWII, the entire production was switched to aviator's gloves, which required the precise precision that could only be achieved by table cutting. Following WWII, Hilts-Willard concentrated on the fast-growing sports glove sector, and its Bali brand became the pioneering leader in a number of goods. Gold gloves, ski gloves, baseball hitting gloves, and racquet sports gloves are just a few examples.
