In our search for quality gloves to use with our costumes, we discovered a definite gap in the market when it comes to fine leather gloves with a long cuff. Everything we found was either bulky, low quality, short cuff, or just really inferior materials. After speaking with several salespeople and purchasing agents, we stumbled upon the contact information for a small family business that has been making work gloves, by hand, since the time of the Great Depression. The best part? They are practically in our back yard! We toured their facility and witnessed their tried and true processes. After agreeing on some design specifics for our purposes, we have come to offer these!
Our gloves are made from the finest goatskin leather stained black (Not dyed). They are machine stitched and steam stretched, by hand, one glove at a time. These are not your standard “Costume grade” gloves. They are constructed for years of heavy use using traditional glove making methods.
You can feel the difference.
Wrist circumference per size:
- Small – 8″
- Medium – 9″
- Large – 9.5″
- XL – 10.5″
- XXL – 10.5″
Sizing on these gloves is unique because of their fit. We have found that they are smaller than standard gloves at the wrist, but fit beautifully in the hand. Please make note of the wrist measurements above before choosing your size. All gloves have an 8″ (20cm) long gauntlet cuff that is slightly flared. You can shorten the cuff as needed with a sharp pair of shears and a quick couple of stitches to ensure no seam separation on the sides.
At last count, the 501st Legion CRLs alone cite over 150 approvable costumes that require “Black Leather gloves”.
These are a high-quality solution for hundreds of costumes and cosplays of every genre that come with no buyers remorse.
You will love these gloves. We do.
