    I'm in as well.

    Don't really need gloves too often in Northern California, but its too good of a deal to pass up.

    I'm in.

    How warm is peccary? I need a pretty large size, I got some big hands.

    I'm in at $50. Is alpaca lined or unlined the better option?

    alpaca lined is probably better for warmth, unlined better for driving.

    Go with alpaca. It's very soft and supposed to be warmer than cashmere. I have a pair I bought last year that hasn't seen much wear yet this year, and the alpaca lining is great.

    To echo PHV, I'm interested IF a sufficiently large size is offered. My handspan is 10", or just enough to reach a major tenth interval on the piano (C -> e, for instance). My experience with most "extra large" dress/driving gloves has been confining and frustrating. [​IMG]

    Would a group buy require we all select the same style/color/etc? Â Either way, I'm in for at least one pair. Tom
    They're about GBP35-50 at Alywn Glove in England.
    dont see them on the website. Â any further info?
    Sorry, could be wrong. I've dealt with Alywn before and thought I saw them. You could e-mail and ask. Chester Jeffries does have peccary -- but I don't know if their website lists them -- they are in the print catalog.

    Sign me up at $50/pair. Thanks for thinking of us.

    Can someone tell me what's so great about peccary gloves with alpaca lined? Is it amazing? I've been fine with my dinky little lined gloves from the store around here. But if it's something that'll keep my hands even warmer during those cold months..then i might be interested. Also, how does one go about knowing what size gloves he wears?
