Solutions to gloves coming lose

I just received a pair of the following gloves



As you can see, there is no "pinch" around the wrist, so as i walk, the gloves would slowly slide off and I have to keep pulling it back into place.

I'm wondering if it is possible to sew some kind of elastic thread into the wrist area to prevent this from happening. If so, can some one recommend a tailor/leather worker in ny who can do this?

Thanks

Get them really wet and throw them in the dryer. Or a rubber band...

They must not fit you. Any tailor (even a dry cleaner "tailor") can sew elastic into your gloves.

They do not fit you. Any tailor can tighten the wrist section for you though.

Loose glove is uncomfortable to wear, so if you care about comfort I would suggest you getting a smaller pair.

Online shopping can be such a pain some times. Thanks for the advice, I'll probably get it tightened.

What size are they? I'm interested in an 8.5 in that color and style.
