Pictures of nice gloves...? - Page 33

post #481 of 530
Cork dents peccary lined with cashmere. This along with the bark unlined peccary I already have means I'm set with gloves for a very long time.

Unrelated: Where are you guys finding crazy colored gloves? Cork peccary is fun, but not crazy; I'd like to dabble in reds, purples, blues, etc. Same goes for carpincho; I don't even know where to start looking for that material, let alone in vivid colors. I'd love something like this:

 

That red I love it .....

If you go to Florence you can find all sorts of colours - I picked up a pair of unlined red carpincho from EFG Guanti last year.  I posted at the time in the Madova thread:

I've been in Florence the last few days and have visited most of the glove retailers mentioned here. Martelli and Madova both had limited carpincho options in my size, 8.5. Madova didn't have any peccary gloves in my size at all. I ended up purchasing a pair of unlined red carpincho gloves at EFG Guandi on Via della Spada. They were well stocked with both carpincho and peccary options in navy, grey, red, olive green, natural, black, and two shades of brown. I found that their gloves were a better fit for me, as the thumb was slightly longer than those I had tried on elsewhere. The sales assistant was extremely knowledgeable and spoke good English, and was much less pushy than the staff in the more popular shops, even suggesting that I take some time away from the shop to think about which colour and style to go for. The workmanship and leather quality both seem to be excellent. Prices for those interested:

Unlined carpincho: 128 eur
Unlined peccary: 160 eur
Cashmere lined peccary: 175 eur

I'm not one for "vintage" dress gloves... They just look kinda dirty to me.

That old shot is from The Sartorialist's archives, also home to the Barbera photo posted earlier on this thriid.

Does Chester Jefferies have issues with gloves colors?

I ordered gloves on their site here:
https://www.chesterjefferies.co.uk/

The color's name is Oak Apple Cape. You can see the sample they put on their site:


Now I have their gloves delivered and see the color is pretty different. It doesn't look light brown as on their sample but orange. WTF? Do you agree it is orange? Would you wear such a color?



I believe men should avoid such bright colors. Do you agree with me? What do you think of these gloves?

Is there a way to make Chester Jefferies to admit their coloring mess and deliver me the right color - it should be either light brown or tan?

It might not be orange, exactly, and I suspect the light is bringing out even more orange than usually, but I agree that it's not the brown color.

 

Email CJ and tell them what's up. If anything, I'd be more concerned about the fit than the color; those look pretty big on you.

They don't look orange on my computer. And different PCs highlight colour differently, which is likely the case here with your purchase.

1. They look close to the swatch on my PC, lighter but pretty close.

2. They'll darken up with time / you could use some leather protector or polish on them to help out the process?

3. CJ will send you leather swatches if you ask nicely!

You're right. However since I wear them during daytime on streets there is no way to post here pictures of them in the light of an artificial illumination we have in offices or apartments in evening hours.

Yes, I also think they don't fit well, too big. However, the circumference around the wrist is fine. If I ordered gloves with smaller wrist circumference it would be difficult to squeeze my palm into it.

So on one hand they are too loose when worn but on the other they shouldn't be narrower in the wrist area. Is there a way for a tailor to fix it somehow? When ordered Chester Jefferies asked only the circumference of the most wide part of the palm, not the circumference of the wrist.

How would you call this color then? It is not brown, not tan, not yellow, but dark dim orange.
