I am pleased so far with the fit. I measured as a 9.5 inch palm and ordered the 9.5. Seem very true to size.

You have to kind of squeeze your hand a bit to get into the glove. Once they are on they are very comfortable.and the finger length is just about perfect for me.

The silk lining seems good as well. I wanted maximum dexterity but was having trouble sourcing unlined gloves that I liked the look of. These aren't exactly like a second skin with the silk but they are much better than a cashmere lined glove in terms of dexterity.

Are they warm to wear? What's the difference in warmth between a silk and cashmere/wool lined glove?

Ok thanks, been eyeing those for a while since Iost my madova gloves recently.

I would guess cashmere is a fair bit warmer, I've been using a silk lined pair from madova for the last to year, anything below 0 C my hands felt cold. On the other hand I've heard some say that silk lining is actually warmer than cashmere...

I just got them so I haven't had the chance to test them. Here in California I only ever deal with low temps in the 30's at night so I don't need crazy warmth.

I will be putting them through their paces over Xmas in Vegas. Gets very cold on the strip at night in December. I'll report in after that.

Anyone feel free to correct me but I think generally cashmere or wool will outperform silk for warmth.

I fell in love with peccary leather. I wish I could afford  6 pairs. (tan, chestnut (maybe darker), black [lined and unlined])

By the way I am thinking about not wearing black at all, pants are not versatile and black lacks the ability to show the real quality of the leather.

As an alternative to black, Greg & NWMA have a nice navy peccary and a great grey carpincho, both from Merola.

Thank you but  there is a great shop in my city which sells good quality gloves a lot cheaper than famous designer brands. They made gloves for Lady Gaga, Ryan Gosling (the one featured in Drive), Madonna, Michael Jackson etc... Standard size peccary costs 80€, bespoke is 100€.
