Nice leather, Average construction
on February 16, 2012
As other reviewers have noted, the fingers are absurdly long. I have average length fingers, and there is a full half inch of extra length in both pairs. I measured them against other Italian-made leather gloves I have, and the difference was instantly noticeable. Also, I bought two pairs the same size. One was a bit too tight, the other a bit too loose.
The leather is very soft and supple. The colors (navy and pumpkin) were true and consistent throughout the glove. The cashmere lining is warm enough for the midwest cold. However, the lining was sewn to the hem of the glove in such a manner as to make the tension from the stitches visible on the outside. This is a shortcut. Truly fine gloves have the lining attached such that the hem of the glove does not reveal the stitches in any way.
If feel it is possible to purchase gloves of equal quality for far less than the "sale" price at which these are offered. $53 is not too much to spend for a good leather dress glove, but the fit and finish should be a bit better.
