I agree with you as well as far as the feel of the leather is concerned, but I just didn't want the gloves to be useless in 0-2 C weather since the Pecarry leather feels quite thin. Do you own any Pecarry lined or unlined pairs and how do you find them for wear in DC weather? Also what did you mean by the adaptability of the leather?

Would getting the Cashmere lined ones render them useless for most days as my hands might feel quite uncomfortably warm in them? What has your experience been wearing Cashmere lined versus unlined gloves in warmer climates? Is the Cashmere lining bearable or am I better off going with unlined ones? Also, gloves for me as well as for most may really just be for aesthetics as opposed to keeping warm...spend most of my time indoors or in a vehicle anways except for the occasional evening walk. The reason I am debating instead of trying them out is because I really don't want to go through the hassle of returning in case I get the wrong type.
Your help in the matter would be much appreciated.
Anybody else have any further input, your help would be much appreciated.
