The temperature has dropped in Melbourne, so much so that I'm going to need a pair of gloves to keep my hands from falling off.

Before I head out to purchase a pair, I thought I'd consult the forum to get some feedback and opinions of what everyone's favorite pair of gloves were?

Chester Jeffries gloves. Draw round your hand and measure round your knuckles - mail it to them, choose your design online and done. (Since you live in Aus you can just measure round your knuckles and type that in at the end of the MTO process without mailing anything. They deliver worldwide for £5 which is impressive) . They will then make your gloves to your exact design and hand shape and send them off to you.

As far as I've heard the fit is perfect, the leather is great and waiting time fairly brief.

As soon as I've got a little spare cash in winter (Northern hemisphere here..) I'm going to have them make me a pair of dark brown cashmere lined gloves.

EDIT - just checked - they charge £20 one off for bespoke and keep your hand print saved for future order. Went through their process plus bespoke and postage costs it comes to around £70 for the pair I wanted and I'd say that's pretty much free.

I want to second Chester Jeffries. I now have 4 pairs of their bespoke gloves and the quality of the gloves and their customer service has been outstanding. They remade the one pair that didn't fit, sent me leather swatches before I placed orders, and have generally been a pleasure to deal with.
