Gloves - first pair

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I am ordering my first pair of bespoke gloves from Chester Jeffries. I think I may have a garbage pair from last year, but otherwise I am gloveless. What would you suggest, both in material and style? I know some of you have ordered from there before. Chester Jeffries offers: Capeskin Calfskin Deerskin Sheepskin Lamb Hogskin Pigskin Suede Lambskin And linings include: Silk Cashmere Wool Cmaois Lam Fur Cotton Fleece Thinsulate

Definately fur lining I've only had lambskin so that's all I know.

Is this for daily use, for work, weekends?

Hey I'm planning to do exactly the same thing.

I emailed Chester Jefferies to request a catalogue and order form a little while ago but haven't heard anything yet.

I was going to go for a pair in dark brown peccary/hogskin with a cashmere lining.

Yes for daily use. No for work, as I don't do any outdoor work (apartment living negates it). Yes, for weekends as well. I dress business casual pretty much all the time. Oh, and I may order a second pair after delivery of the first.

Suede lambskin and cashmere lining.

I love pigskin, and pigskin gloves tend to age well.

Tobacco carpincho, astrakhan trim, cashmere lining.

The best gloves I currently own come from Gerard Durand, although I just bought vintage deadstock Sulka gloves in mocha calf that are very soft. Still looking for hand-stitched kid.

I usually only wear chamois gloves in their natural color otherwise, I prefer tight as a German officer black leather gloves.

I like the tight black leather too, with a silk lining.

Sorry for the ignorant question, but how does one measure oneself to have bespoke gloves made? Or must you be within the area of a craftsman and have them do this for you?

For some reason, the thought of "hand turkeys" sprang to mind.

I ask this as one who has difficulty finding close fitting gloves for his dainty hands.

Last I heard, Chester Jefferies was asking customers to trace their hand and send in the drawing. So the hand turkey isn't too far off.

Yep, hand turkey, but no waddle or crayon feathering.

You should send it in as a turkey anyway just for laughs.
