People who still wear fingerless gloves:

Criminals who have their fingerprints removed

Somewhere along the way people convinced themselves it was okay to wear fingerless gloves because it was easier to type out text messages. So for around for eight years it was marginally tolerated that people wore fingerless gloves. And then the best minds from 'witchcraft, DONDA, Apple, the CIA, Braun, and Outlier came together to create gloves that could actually be used on a touch screen, simultaneously creating the most important sartorial function of the aughts and relegating finger less gloves to Complex’s Lamest Clothing Items of Recent History list. This is how history is written, kids.
