those are peccary. not carpincho.

Uh Oh. Were you the guy that sold them to him?

I have to admit I am finding it a little disturbing that someone with your username knows so much about skin.

I think it was Chester Jeffries. Thank you.

Seems a good deal in that their mtm service is essentially free.

Please allow me to ask a question that is not an attempt to derail this thread; rather, it is a sincere effort to acquire sartorial knowledge. Assuming a person has hands that a standard glove size would fit, in what way(s) are peccary gloves from Madova and similar makers superior to deerskin or lambskin gloves, for example, available at significantly lower cost? If it could be posited hypothetically that quality of construction were equal, would the Modova gloves still be superior in terms of functionality (providing warmth) or durability over time?

There is nothing special about them except that the leather is nice and is also sturdy. So is deerskin. Don't assume away the difference in fit, though. Better glove makers use a more complex pattern to get a better fit. Look for example, for a diamond shaped insert between the fingers (the name of this insert, which I won't give here, is an awesome trivia answer (like a punt or an aglet)) and the shape of the thumb-pieces and how they are attached. So better made gloves have a head start over cheaper gloves in terms of fitting well.

Thank you, dopey. Any other thoughts on this?

what are fourchettes

If this were Jeapordy, that would be the wrong question. Fourchettes are the pieces on the outside of the fingers, not the diamond shaped insert between the fingers.

Hi guys,

I am interested in purchasing gloves either from Merola and Madova. I was debating whether to pick up cashmere lined Peccary or unlined Peccary. I live in Vancouver and average temp in the winters here ranges from 37 F to 57F (3.7 C to 13 C). There are some colder days as well. 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.

Thanks,

Unlined peccary is the way to go. Lining them in cashmere negates some of the advantages that come from the suppleness and adaptability of the material.

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?

Anybody else have any further input, your help would be much appreciated.

If you are worried about nothing colder than 37F, you wouldn't need lined gloves. At least I wouldn't. I would definitely want lined gloves for freezing and below, though.

I wear my unlined gloves almost all winter in DC. Maybe 10 days a year when I'll need lined.

Adaptability meaning it'll mould to your hands over time. Unless they're lined.

Mine are carpincho tho
post #74 of 94
Thanks for the replies, I think I will get unlined Pecarry and maybe a lined pair in Nappa. Is cashmere lining quite uncomfortable at temps above 37 F or so?
