Check out our blog post about the longest gloves we've ever made, at 32" they are as long as my legs!

To find your glove size, measure (in inches) around your hand with a tape measure at the place indicated by the red line (just below the knuckles). You should measure your dominant hand, the right if you are right-handed, and the left if you are left-handed. 

 

 

Some of you may prefer to use our Bespoke Personal Fitting Service £50 - you will need to send your hand tracings (see below) to us along with your circumference palm measurement (see fitting above) and the width around your arm where you would like the glove to finish, faxing or emailing the image can distort the actual size of your hand.


TRACING AROUND YOUR HAND
To trace around your hands lay your hand completely flat with your fingers and thumb spread out. Take a sharp pencil or pen (not a thick marker pen etc) and keep the pen/pencil in an upright position while tracing around the hand.


Measuring the length of your  gloves

To correctly measure the length of your gloves, you should measure from your wrist bone just below the ball of the thumb up to your desired length. You will also need to measure the circumference of your arm at this point so we know how big to make the end of the glove.

Please post your hand tracings to:

GLOVES

To find your regular glove size, take the measurement around your palm, glove sizing is still done in inches, so you'll need to convert if necessary - 2.54cm = 1 inch.

Our gloves are on the tight side, so you may want to round up or down according to how you like them to fit, a good regular fit by sizing up, a super tight fit by sizing down.
