Pictures of nice gloves...? - Page 37
Unlined, silk or cashmere (in Melbourne; winters can get cold, but rarely get below 5c). Simple calf (or deerskin, though this seems thicker and less agile), no fancy peccary or carpincho, sadly.
I rarely wear a suit, business casual is the order of the day.
They sit around the same, cost-wise, when you factor in delivery all the way down here.
Madova don't seem very well thought of, and Merola I can only find at places that charge silly amounts for delivery (Hanger Project, Suitable Wardrobe). Dents and Chester Jeffries are within $10 of each other. CJ seems to have the wider range of leathers and options.

I need help from those who know:
I'd like to buy a new pair of leather unlined gloves. However, I want them to be tight and thin.... enough thin to feel through the leather fingers (at least to pick up a coin) and skin tight. I have already bought some unlined gloves - all of them with no brand, bought in Italy. I'm quite satisfied with them, but not enough - one has the leather too thick, one has the fingers too large (right length) and the other has the fingers a bit short. I want the best unlined glove! Hence, I'd like to know:
- which is the difference between Madova and CJ: which has the thinnest leather and which has the longest fingers (and slim fingers). Does the bespoke CJ really fit like a glove?
- How is the feel of unlined peccary compared to that of capeskin leather. Do you loose dexterity when in them?
There is no other glove that compares to peccary. It is sublime.
I wear mine while driving. I don't feel like they're a burden when doing stuff.
