poor baby.

whatever will you do now?

It's time for Unbel to pull a Mr. Moo.

I was told by the people at Madova that the skins were the same, just with a different finish...

Dunno what it means to pull a Moo but I will email Madova to confirm

Carpincho and peccary are different animals. Sometimes in the word peccary is used synonymously.

It's where you order one thing, use it for a bit, then realize what you were sold was misrepresented and ask for your money back. shog[1].gif

That should be rephrased to:

"use it for a few months to complete satisfaction, then realize what you were sold was misrepresented only after extensive consultation of web-experts, and that your discount was not as deep as you thought it to be". Just saying'. Love you.

Haha ok - well I'm happy with the gloves regardless of the animal that perished so that they might be constructed. But I'm still interested in getting the correct information so I will report back when I hear from Madova.

My peccary gloves:





In retrospect, I do wish (as I have said) that they fit a bit better, and that they were more of a mid-brown than this tan-brown color.

That's a good color, so don't complain.
How is this for a complaint - I had a great pair of perfectly fitting, unlined Hermes peccary gloves. Now I only have one.

Dopey, that might be one of the most painful things I've read of late. I'm very sorry for your loss.
