Pictures of nice gloves...? - Page 34
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.
I doubt it would be worth the money to have them altered, even if you managed to find someone who could do it (unlikely, I think). If the hand opening is too small, you'll just have to opt for a different style; all of my gloves have notches at the wrist so that the hand opening is comfortable to pull over your hand.
Bummer about the whole situation.
Thank you for your email and I am sorry to hear you are unhappy with the colour of your gloves.
The Oakapple colour is a dull orange colour and this is shown as clear as possible on the website. We use actual pieces of the leather to display the colours on the website to get the best possible likeness.
If you wanted a light Brown or Tan colour we do have a Tan (2 spaces right of Oakapple) and for light brown Cognac is perfect.
Unfortunately I can not accept the return of these gloves as our policy states here: http://www.chesterjefferies.co.uk/scripts/terms.asp
What's wrong with Chester Jefferies? Can't they see a real color differs intensely from what they have on their site as a sample?
I'm considering ordering some black gloves from CJ too for next winter. What's the SF opinion on leathers for black gloves? Is a smooth leather like capeskin better (more formal) or would black carpincho look great too? I just don't see a lot of images of black carpincho out there. NMWA has some nice grey carpincho Merolas though: http://www.nomanwalksalone.com/index.php/accessories/gloves/grey-real-carpincho-unlined-gloves-1995.html

You weren't kidding! A quick search led me to these driving gloves of theirs. Killer!
So what's the deal with July/August? Will you be stopping by their shop? I'd definitely be interested in a few of the more exotic options.
I visited the factory with the store I work, and made an order for quite some models. The python part is on the back part of the glove, and it's pure porn. Send me a pm and I'll find the models and everything.
