I have been very happy with mine, probably going to order a pair in buffed hogskin soon.

Haven't seen this brand before, and hey they even have touchscreen-compatible ones!
Looking at the Paris right now, which lining-option would you recommend?
Want them to fit tight so I'm guessing nothing that thick, and would prefer if they pilled as little as possible.

Have yours stretched out anything?
Considering they've been around since '36 I'd guess the measurements you submit result in a tight fit that stretches and moulds over time, but who knows (I just really hate when gloves fit loose)

For lining, it depends on your climate. Warmest will be something in fur. I'd probably go with a wool or cashmere lining.

Doubt I'm going to buy them this season though. We only have two more months of cold weather here, and I have a few other pairs that are 'ok'.

Shearling or silk lining or no lining at all, cashmere kinda sucks. If you want something that fits tight go unlined.

Cashmere linint works great for really cold weather, as does shearling.  Silk is nice and feels great, but yes, for something to fight snugly, you should buy a pair that fits snugly from the get go.  If you have a chance, try them out in person.  I fin that the thumb is that hardest part to fit.  I tried on about 5 pairs of different peccary gloves of the same make, and I'm not at all disappointe dthat I did so.  Everything fits perfectly.  I am not a "perfect fit" type of guy, but in the case of gloves, a perfect fit actualy serves a real purpose.

Don't wear a shearling coat when there's extreme fog on the ground, it'll wick the moisture up quickly. Today's experience to random thought.

I believe we're both in similar tall & lanky territory, so finding a henley that's both trim enough to layer over and long enough can be kind of a hassle.

Let me know if you find the perfect one. smile.gif

Oh, and congrats on the engagement!
Thanks! Will do Yeah, especially over the past six months, my shoulders have been getting wider and my waist even smaller. I think I'll try to give Scheisser a try...


I just remembered why I never order anything from Coggles:
"VAT is chargeable at the point of sale on all goods and services within the European Union and therefore we must charge all customers regardless of their country of residence. We are obliged to collect tax on behalf of the United Kingdom tax authorities as part of the goods we offer.

If you feel that you should not be paying VAT for any goods, you will need to request a reclaim of the VAT from your local tax authority. "

well i'm open to offers. bam the stuff in my threads should fit you, from what you've listed. most of the stuff i'm selling is xs/s and i'm now a m/32 so if you have anything that fits the bill, shoot an offer!

woah, really? for road or another discipline?

cyclists are all kind of fucked in the head, especially people who are actually good. would not want to live in a bike house, haha.

that kind of shit puts all my purchases ever to shame. the three of them routinely go for 5-6hr rides. one of their favorites is a 55km trail, from one end to the other, then back. i can't even comprehend that shit.

That is certainly possible, but it literally represents buying the most expensive everything currently available: frame, parts, wheels, etc, etc. I'm not exaggerating; you'd have to work hard to spend that much on a bike.

Also, if someone is on a national level olympic team for a 1st world company, they are also very likely already a rider for a team w/ solid bike sponsorship, so they'd be getting sweet equipment for free (or massively discounted). On the other hand, I used to work a very nice bike shop, and there are plenty of people of the high income variety who are happy to spend $8-10k on a bike.
