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

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.

peccary is supposedly overharvested and rare now. surprisingly so. the glove shops say they have a hard time getting this skin in now, in decent quality.

The weather has finally dropped and I can start wearing these Thomas Riemer yellow, unlined deerskin gloves from Exquisite Trimmings:

I just put in an order for bespoke cork and espresso unlined peccary gloves from Paula Run. I also put in an order with Chester Jefferies for bespoke unlined beaver Caprincho gloves. Wish me luck, I was very meticulous with my measuring and also scanned my hands on a flat top glass scanner. I figured it was more reliable then tracing. I've invested a good deal into this little sartorial adventure at this point so I hope it turns out well. My main issue with RTW gloves is that while they fit well generally, my smallest finger, commonly referred to as the pinky finger, does not fit. The glove does not rest all the way between the fingers. This makes the glove generally feel too small and ill-fitting.

is your pinky finger too long, or too short?

It is too long. The glove does not rest between my fingers, there is another 1/4 or so of space beneath the glove. I sent full measurements and scans to both makers so I have my fingers crossed.

I also have an order in progress with CJ for my first pair of bespoke gloves. It's already been a month and I hope they will be delivered soon.

I certainly do not want to alarm you, but according to one of the reviews on their website they use Carprincho only on the backs of the gloves and the palm are made of capeskin. I hope that was only a one-off thing and yours turn out well.

BTW I never heard of Paula Run Gloves and just did a search. I only saw one or two designs that I liked, but there is something quite appealing about ordering peccary gloves from South America!

Are you sure about this? I ordered the city gent model. It does not note anywhere that the palm side of the glove is made from a different hide then the one chosen. They have another model that is of this type, but it is clearly noted in the description. Other glove manufactures also have this type of glove, it is apparently quite popular.

The comment was linked to a different model, but even for that model there is no mention of two types of leather being used:

Scroll down to the bottom and read Igor's review. After reading it, I decided not to try any exotic leathers with CJ. Perhaps you could send them an e-mail and ask politely if your gloves will be 100% Carpincho?

I just emailed them. I will definitely be canceling the order if that is the case. I do not believe it will be though. There are many photos online of Chester Jefferies and the entire glove is Peccary or Caprincho, depending on the order.
