Chester Jefferies online shop

Looking at their online shop, they seem to accept some measurements for gloves, not only basic sizing infos.
Does anyone have a direct experience of ordering gloves online from them?
Thanks in advance

Yes.

So on with the questions
What was your experience?
Are they ready to work on more detailed measurements to achieve a better result?
Thanks

I have just taken delivery of a pair. A good fit. The finish was not quite as good as Sermoneta rtw but these were more or less the same price for mtm. . Delivery was about three weeks after the order as they had to wait for the leather (I had chosen yellow-gold).

Will has a report:

Thanks for the infos Percy!
A few other questions if you don't mind.
You said "good fit", did you give them detailed measurements or just the circumference of your hand? Would you say that they fit better than Sermoneta RTW?

Actually I think my Sermonetas are better all round. The catch is they only do men's gloves in a small choice of colours. I only gave the hand circumference measurement and the fingers are slightly shorter than I would have liked. However, for the price (and colour), I am quite satisfied .

i have just received my pair from chester jefferies the fit is spot on but i am not sure about the quality of leather can anyone tell me about the quality of their leather?

I've had a pair for a few weeks. I gave them the circumference of my hands and also the length of my longest finger. They don't advertise it but I believe you can also send them a tracing.

They have held up very well so far and fit well. For the price, I'm quite happy. You pay a LOT more for truly bespoke gloves. The Pound was quite low the day I got billed. If I get a few good seasons out of them I'd be satisfied.

They've made me two pair from tracings. The fingers could be a bit trimmer but I'm happy in general.

Their customer service was excellent. The fit was very good also. Unfortunately, the leather started falling apart after less than a season. You get what you pay for...

Interesting. I had excellent, helpful service from CJ. The leather held up very well; I did have a minor repair made that they took care of quickly. I didn't find their capeskin as soft and smooth as kid or nappa leather from elsewhere, but otherwise the quality was very good and IMHO better than Sermoneta (although Sermoneta has different leathers).

So which is it? Is the quality good or bad? I don't want to have a $100 pair of gloves fall apart on me in a season...
