Nice leather gloves.
on December 6, 2012
I've never actually purchased leather gloves before, so picking out an appropriate size has never been something I've had to consider. Keeping that in mind, I probably should have checked to see what my size was or found a pair in-store somewhere; however, these had a recently reduced price on here (Amazon) and I couldn't resist finally owning a pair of genuine leather gloves (especially a pair lined in cashmere).
They arrived promptly and were packaged appropriately. They looked and felt amazing but the fit was larger than I had hoped for. Again, I probably should have figured out my size, and I do have smaller hands (I ordered the size 7.5) so if you also have small hands with thin, shorter fingers, it might be something to keep in mind if you don't already know your glove size. Unfortunately the 7.5 was the smallest size available when I was ordering them and I unknowingly assumed it would be small enough.
They fit well for wearing when I'm out walking, but when I need to use my hands, more specifically, my digits, the extra bulk becomes a bit of a problem; trying to hold on to a cigarette, let alone get one out of a pack, can be a hassle. Outside of that aspect, they're incredibly warm and comfortable. The cashmere lining is soft, plus they look very chic and well made for leather gloves under $30 (I paid around $28 for them). I'll definitely be keeping these and wearing them anytime I'm outside for longer periods of time this Winter.
