Hello Gents, This might be a strange question to ask, but how do you determine how a pair of gloves should fit? I am trying to decide between Size 8 or 9. I have ordered both of them and planning on keeping one. With the size 8 my fingers just touch the tips of the glove fingers, the palm fits comfortably snug as well. Its just that when I close my fist it takes a bit of pressure to do it (not a problem holding a cup though) as opposed to size 9, but the size 9 is roomy in the palm and I have at least 0.25 to 0.5 inch room at the fingertips. You would think with expressions like " fits like a glove" it would be easy to tell, but I really can't. I like the slim fit of the 8 and am thinking the leather will soften up over time and fit my hand even better.
