    No, Sir, not eel www.illari.com, peccary from the wild, greasy, coarse bristled, pig-like Javelena of the SW U.S., Central & South America. The purveyor's label, or stamp, indicates Germany, or did so previously.

    that is not illiari's website, and i think those are rebranded illiari. thanks.

    It's cashmere-lined lambskin, by Lanvin.

    Not to be argumentative, but one fears you are labouring under a misapprehension, Sir.

    Peccary gloves have been hand stitched in Germany at least since it was "West". Illiari (is this the confirmed spelling now?), on the other hand, is apparently a Peruvian maker only recently of popular Norte Americano import, much less European.

    No, no no, thank You!

    Assuming you are correct, the peccary leather for the gloves still came from south america.

    So are you saying the German sewn somehow makes it "better" than Peruvian sewn?

    1)Not necessarily. Patiently repeating, "SW U.S. .........." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peccary

    B)There is not even a hint of such an implication. The inference is your'n. Merely, humbly, attempting to correct Mr. Derm's perceptual assumption. Although, being south of the equator, the Peruvian artisans do use a reverse twist sewing thread, with all the implications inherent. On the other hand, the German glovers employ Bavarian gnawing grannies to "enhance" the peccary bristle marks. So, it may be a toss-up as to desirablility.

    Hope to have been of assistance.

    I bought mustard yellow leather ones last winter. They stand out awesome against a muted jacket and slacks.

    Postman dropped by today with my Chester Jeffries order, Paris in mocca brown Cape leather with red silk lining:

    Only provided one measurement of my hand (as described on order page), but the fit turned out pretty damn good, save for a wee bit of extra length on my index and last fingers. So happy with my order that I ordered a pair for the girlfriend as well!

    International shipping costs 5GBP, and as always with the Royal Mail, arrives very swiftly.

    I placed an order for a pair of chester jeffries gloves (Paris in brown cape leather, silk lined), which is supposed to ship this week. Provided just measurements in CM without any tracing. Will post pics when it gets here.

    They say allow 6 weeks for the handmade gloves. Did yours take that long? (Beauts by the way)

    Thanks! Mine are machine made, so I can't speak for handmade orders. My gf's gloves will be handmade, so we'll see how long they take.

    Order was placed on 22 Sep, arrived today (from UK to Finland) on 12 Oct.. just 3 weeks, not too bad!

    Here's an action shot of my Chester Jeffries gloves (ordered last winter so they have a few months of Minnesota Winter wear). IIRC, they took about 4 weeks to receive.

    (apologies if the pic doesn't show up right away, the imageshack server is slow on this one today)

    gshen: nice ones- yes Im aware of that company and think that for the quality they have really fair prices, too...(or is it gauche to say so?). I'm thinking of also ordering from them sooner or later... Cary: like those too, also the jacket (cashmere?) looks really cozy- must have been difficult to get all the blood out of it. [​IMG] For now I bought these (Pecari) and the colour is ok for me too- they are thinly lined with wool I believe: [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Nice. BB offered croc gloves last year in its Christmas catalog. IIRC, they were $2000.00.

    ^ But somehow quite intriguing, too...I would actually like to try them on... (that company -like much of the French style) isn't so much to my taste- too "airy" and manneristic with hints at a certain new fangledness and suspicions of noveau riche (very fitting to this age, of course), I prefer the British and Italians...love French literature, though. Also bought some for colder weather: [​IMG]

    Those are neat, and they hold a dual purpose for slapping some bitches up good. [​IMG]
    Speaking of slapping... What kind of glove is recommended for slapping whilst saying, 'I say, you have offended me this day and I demand satisfaction.' ?
