I have to put the adjectives in the correct order to complete the sentences.

They only had _____ _____ (leather, old-fashioned) gloves in the sale, so I'll have to keep looking for those.

Adjective order: Opinion, Size/Age, Colour/Pattern, Material, Make/Type, Noun
In this sentence leather is material but what is old-fashioned - type or opinion? Thank you in advance!

Instinctively, "Old-fashioned leather gloves" sounds correct to me as a native BrEng speaker. And I would agree that "old-fashioned" is an opinion rather than a "type", because they certainly were not "old-fashioned" when they were made so that cannot really describe the style. It is a matter of opinion that they are no longer in-style and therefore old-fashioned.
