I am quilter and have a collection of thimbles. This review presents the comparison of the thimbles along with images of how they fit.

Dritz Slip-Stop Thimble is a traditional metal thimble. I find that metal thimble is a bit too cumbersome to work with. My fingers are not as nimble with this thimble on. A metal thimble was the first thimble I ever used, and when I was not totally satisfied with it my collection of thimbles began to grow.

I am attaching comparison and pictures of the thimbles in my collection. In one image you can see the thimbles by themselves, and in another picture of how they fit on my fingers. The numbers in the images correspond to the numbers below.

1. Leather thimble with a metal plate (marked #1 in the photos) is my favorite, most versatile thimble. Because it is leather it become shaped to your finger and gets more and more comfortable with use. The metal plate on the tip allows to push through and not hurt your finger. It does not have an opening at the top, so it may not work for those who have long nails.

2. All leather thimble (marked #2 in the photos) is extremely comfortable, but because it has no metal parts it provides less protection. I often use it as a second thimble on the hand to protect another finger because it does not get in a way. It has an opening at the top, so it works for those who have long nails.

3. Strip thimbles (marked #3 in the photos) turned out not to be very useful. The leather itself can be penetrated by the needle, the pink plastic insert does protect the finger. However the string that holds thimble together on the back broke very quickly. I was able to repair them by stitching them together on the back to replace the string that broke.

I get that the overwhelming majority of thimble users lack a Y chromosome. But seriously, if an "extra large" thimble will only fit on my pinkie (I have average sized hands for a man), what size should I be looking for? "Super colossal gigantic?" Ridiculous.

I'm a male with average-sized fingers. Although this is marked as an X-large, it only properly fits my 5th finger (little finger, pinkie finger), in the sense that this is my only finger which reaches to and touches the end of the thimble on the inside when it's worn. It is usable on my 2nd (index) and 4th (ring) fingers, though - it fits well enough that it doesn't slip off. I'd call it a Man's Small size (on a scale of XS-S-M-L-XL).

On the up side, it's a good design. The top of the thimble is recessed (or dished) inwards, so there is a decent lip there to hold the needle steady as you push it, and the ridges, or pockets, on the side work OK too.

The search for a real man-sized thimble will have to continue, but this will work until I find one.

As you see from the photo they don't cover the very tip of the finger, so they did not work well for me.

Item description did not mention actual size -- it is 11/16 in diameter at the bottom edge and slants inward (smaller) to snug the finger tip. I expected it to be larger since the description said x-large. It fit more securely on my ring finger than my middle. I could use it comfortably but I wish they made them larger.

Also description of item should include diameter in inches or mm to avoid size mistakes as mentioned in other reviews!

I'm not a tailor by a long shot. I was, however, hoping to spare my big fat fingers from any further pricking when I try and sew or repair something. This thimble LOOKS good, it's tough and is covered with a bunch of interesting tiny depressions and ridges to "capture" the needle as it skitters off the surface (and before it finds purchase in your thigh). That said, it's just not big enough. I have big hands. I have big fingers. This is x-large? OK, then I'd buy an xx-large and even a xxx-large thimble! I understand the concept and am always happy to avoid unnecessary pain, but the bottom line is that this is promising, but just not big enough for male fingers.
