I just checked out Chester Jeffries, and considering that you can get Bespoke for only £20 more I say that's a deal. I noticed Peccary is like £170 extra - holy Hell! Is that really worth the difference?

 

Peccary is unbelievable, I didn't understand why it was so expensive until I tried it on. Not sure why anyone would get it lined with cashmere though, sort of defeats the point and it is incredibly warm as it is.

The brogued driving gloves look like pure 80s cheese.
No way you guys are talking about these.

Dave good to know - but I mean, for the shitty winter we had last year and for the upcoming, I feel like I need every warmth generator I can find. My existing calfskin and cashmere lined gloves leave much to be desired in the warmth department.

I get the feeling these are just some knock-offs that are expensive.
Anyone know the legitimacy of this Ebay seller? Could just be cheap $5 leather.

Most certainly not the driving gloves. Just search for peccary gloves on eBay and you'll see the listings around the $100 mark. Can't verify the quality as of yet. Seems too good to be true. But if its made in Mexico or somewhere with comparable labor rates, it's possible for it to be a bargain. My gloves see far too much wear to justify designer prices..

If it's too good to be true, it's probably just some cheapo leather and the seller is living in a very large house on the water.
Ebay is loaded with fake everything

I have looked into Chester Jeffries, according to all that I have heard the Bespoke option is not really worth it unless you have weird hands. The regular sizes fit more snugly because the machine can sew more tightly than the hand sewing. But I have decided not to get one as I realized I would just lose one of the gloves!
