Hey gang. Laying the foundation for a 1:1 Rocky thanks to Howard. I am trying to pinpoint Rocky's gloves in the final scene of Rocky I. I could have sworn his gloves were red with a white Everlast label, but a pic seemed to indicate another brand. Anyone know?

Also, for now I am going to stick to the $90 eBay Rocky I robe,
but advice on his white shorts with red stripe and boots would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Now that I think about it, I should have put this in the costume section. My first thought was that gloves were props.

UPDATE: Some independent research turned up that Rocky used Casanova gloves in the first film, which were and are, incidentally, illegal to use in the United States due to their lack of padding. Stallone is credited to have said the filmakers preferred their sleaker look despite the actual harm he and Carl Weathers endured.

See a pair here:

They don't look like the Casanova, Reyes or Tuf Wear gloves that I'd associate with Rocky I,II or III. Weird.
agreed .......... thats why im thinking they maybe replica gloves from the opening fight scene

Yeah. I'm surprised I haven't hear anything about these here. And that's a pretty big statement for DS to call them exact replicas. I do think they will suit my purposes so I bought a pair on Amazon since I'm in the US. Thanks SP for the link anyway.

Still looking for his white and red striped everlast shorts. I really didn't think it would be so hard to track down this stuff.

Just FYI, I went with Title Boxing and had them custom make white shorts with a red waist and trim. I decided to go with no patch since I could always Frankenstein and sew on an Everlast label if it bothers me.

Wow. I was this close to spending $300 on real Casanova gloves.

Looks like Diamond Select's "Go the Distance Gloves" DO have a replica Casanova patch!
