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?
