    These gloves fit me, well, like a glove. A bang on fit with my first try - I could not be more satisfied. They are soft, supple, but alas cannot cope with -35C (-31F) weather. A couple more photos, as I am powerfully bored at present: [​IMG] [​IMG]

    ^ Yes. A slightly better and easier alternative to tracing it out with a pen would be to scan your hand with the scanner set to black/white (as opposed to greytone or colour). Remember to scan a ruler as well at the same time in case the scanner 'scales' your scanned image. This method is IMO better as the exact silhouette of your hand is captured, not a slightly 'looser' version (as pen tracings are wont to end up as).

    What was the turnaround on these?

    Very good stuff, apro. Thank you and enjoy those sweet looking gloves.

    What colour are they in? I also have a hard time visualising their colours given on the website.

    Not a lover of that type of seam stitch - too blocky/bulgy. I got my chamois CJs today, and they have that type. I prefer the invisible seam stitch for a rounded/smooth look. Partially my fault since I did a half/half order or Paris style with shorter wrist of the Francis. But what I got was Francis stitching and wrist. The chamois feels fantastic and soft though. I'll post pics later
    Same here. I don't like glove stitching where the edges are exposed. I saw a pair at Saks (retail $200) and it looked like two sheets of leather hastily put together. I like the smoother "inseam" stitching..

    I thought shearling was "the whole package"; outside+lining.

    I think CashmereLover is correct - the content label just says 'Shearling' so that includes both outside and lining.

    Well reading the thread got me thinking about ordering a nice pair of light coloured gloves from Chester Jefferies, or perhaps a pair of the peccary ones on eBay. Then I went out this morning, and happened to find these in a vintage clothing store - NOS buckskin gloves by 'Webbs', made in England with black handstitching and the little triangular darts on the fingers. The best part is they cost me about 15% of what Chester Jefferies would have charged!
