Laws of Carrying: Clothing & Jewelry
15. There are authorities who permit the wearing of gloves into the public
domain on Shabbos, and others who prohibit it (1). Greater leniency can be
shown regarding wearing a muff which is made to warm both hands together (2).
(1) The stringent opinion is concerned that one may have to remove a glove
while in the public domain, and end up carrying it. Nowadays, the custom is
to be lenient and wear gloves in the public domain on Shabbos; according to
some, the justification for following the lenient opinion is that, at
present, our streets do not fulfill the criteria of a Biblical public
domain, but rather a "carmelis," and therefore, even if one would
accidently carrying the gloves, it would not be a violation of a Biblical
prohibition. However, according to the Mishna Berura (301:141), a "ba'al
nefesh," (one who has reached a certain spiritual level) should follow the
stringent opinion and not wear gloves, unless they are sown or tied to
one's sleeves before Shabbos (See also Shulchan Aruch 301:37).
(2) This is the opinion of the Taz, who reasons that even if a person
removes one hand from the muff, the other hand will still be in place, and
one will not end up carrying it. However, there are those who do not feel
that one can be more lenient with a muff, and the Mishna Berura (302:139)
rules that one should not differentiate between a muff and a gloves.
