    for those of you who have been reading my deranged pleading for help finding these peccary gloves, persistence pays off. i finally got in touch with a sales rep there who sent me some information. i am ordering two samples from them. after that, if enough people here are interested, we can place a bulk order and work something out. they seem to be around $50 a glove (and prices get cheaper as quantity increases).

    is there enough interest in this?

    Would a group buy require we all select the same style/color/etc? Either way, I'm in for at least one pair.

    I would be interested if they could arrive in time for Christmas. (I would give them as gifts, rather than wear them for myself.)

    That may add to complexity as I probably would be interested in different sizes, and men's and ladie's models.

    Why not?

    Edit: Just to clarify, I'm broke right now, so I'm not in.

    just to clarify - I AM NOT DOING THIS TO MAKE MONEY. search for peccary and read the other threads and you will know a little more about peccaryperu. i have been talking to the manager (at least i think he's the manager) there. i'm trying to get him to send one sample first.

    the glove price he states is around $45 plus approx. $5 shipping (assuming there is a large enough quantity to bring shipping per pair down to this level). for the sample pair he is charging $50+$30 shipping.

    this is not likely to be here by christmas - it'll probably be a lot longer than that going by others past experience. that said, $50 for alpaca lined peccary gloves is not bad so ...

    over the weekend, i'll make an excel file where everybody can upload their name/size/color/quantity. that way i'll save those who want a pair the hassle of tracking down the people at peccaryperu. he has sent me a pdf with details about pricing and sizes - i will upload that too over the weekend.
