Not what they used to be [nor as pictured]
on December 8, 2011
I've owned and liked these same gloves for years, but the seem to have been dumbed-down: not as tight and snug a fit, harder to take off, and despite the picture and product designation, which includes the words "with sued palm strips," there are no suede palm strips, nor any strips on the outer two fingers, only a small palm patch, making for a more slippery grip. I'm sure Isotoner's sharp-eyed bean counters figured out that with 2" less suede per glove the profit margin could be increased some minuscule percentage, especially if they kept marketing them as the old-style gloves. What amazes me is how Amazon collaborates in such shenanigans.
