My question was how should the fit be? Is the finger too small if the arrow denotes where my finger ends? I am looking to get my fit down and make adjustments for my next batch. So as mentioned, if any of the more experienced members on the topic of glove fitting can comment it would be greatly appreciated.

I love Italian gloves' leather quality and Chinese company's customization. I once went to a very famous bespoke glove store in NYC and spent 135 dollars to get a pair of customized gloves and the result was terrible - very rough cuts, bad leather quality, and big/long fingers although I said that I wanted a very tight fit. I also tried CJ, but the turn out was so so. Then I tried a Chinese company. They asked for everything about my hands from the palm measurement to the length and the girth of every single finger. I paid 30 dollars for the pair and 30 for shipping. They are absolutely the best gloves I've ever had. They fit like no any other gloves could. However I think the Italian gloves have the best leather quality.

Which famous glove store did you visit in NYC that makes bespoke gloves? Gloves are very subjective. Outside of fit, since fit will make the garment, the availability of different leather is important. Equally as important are liners. I find too many glove makers stock too few skins and liners. A few of the bespoke glove makers that have good selections of hides and liners charge ridiculous prices.

They did some bespoke gloves for some celebrities. But I don't want to put their name here because the elderly couple that run the business are very nice. Yes it is hard to find leather as good as the ones Italians have and I think they don't export their processed leather material either. The Chinese company could only get ones from Ethiopia.

Which Chinese company was that? Do you know where they are located?

I bought these carpincho gloves in Buenos Aires (El Boyero, if I remember correctly) about five years ago. They have been worn quite a bit but still work great for a casual pair of gloves in moderate weather.

I purchased these three new pairs while traveling in Pecs, Hungary. The navy and green pair are lamb while the grey is carpincho (I think). They are all lined in wool.

And finally a pair of kid gloves with cashmere lining from Lavabre Cader

It’s MNSHANG Gloves. A friend of mine recommended them to me. They can customize any style you want but their shipping is quite expensive and they recently increased their price too. Their email is MNSHANG@126.com.

 

Two pairs of gloves I just got from them.

Unlined, thick leather

 

 

Silk lined.

Thank you very much. I've just written an e-mail... I've looked for it on the internet, but I have not found anything. Let's hope they answer me. 
I really want those gloves you have... they seem to fit perfectly. Can I choose the leather as well?

Thanks, J.


You live in Vienna, go to Handschuhe Christl.

Surprisingly - Handschuhe Christl does not make their own gloves. They are from Italy or Hungary (peccary). Christl told me that Vienna is not known for glove making or leather making.

Sure I'd like to see some picture (or even paintings) for inspiration..


RJ: I think I know what shop you are talking about, its maybe the one next to the Cafe Bräunerhof...there is also one on Stephansplatz that I'll probably look into..maybe called Boettner...in fact if one thinks about it Vienna is somehow quite big on glovemaking (and also hatmaking) I believe...

Christl told me that Vienna is not known for glove making or leatherwork, which was disappointing to hear

From a recent trip to Florence.

From Pusateri:

Black unlined deerskin. Very similar to these, which I got in Naples some 6 years ago, and which I still use.

From Luciano:

Dark brown unlined calf.

Dark navy unlined calf (been using these for about a week now).

A heads up for those of you looking for peccary: In at least half of the 4-5 shops we visited, they showed us carpincho instead. Madova was the worst offender, with the sales person 3 times denying that the 'peccary' she showed us was actually carpincho, until I spelled out the differences - at which point she admitted that it in fact *was* carpincho, before finding some actual peccary. In one of the other shops they said this was not unexpected behaviour for the shops in Florence.
