Nice look, really good fit
I have massive man-hands and it isn't unusual for me to not fit into large women's gloves. I was about to order a large when I saw someone's review saying these gloves run large. So I measured my hand and followed the sizing chart and sure enough, the chart said I'd be a medium. I figured I'd give it a shot and stretch them out if I need to. Wow, these gloves were about 30-40% too big even at a medium. I'm going to try and exchange them for a small. If you have small hands, I would not get your heart set on these gloves. If you have freakishly large hands like me, congrats! You found gloves that will fit! I think one unexpected thing I like about these gloves is that it makes your hands more visible. So if you're signally to make a turn, the gloves should catch the attention of drivers around you. Other than the loose fit, these gloves are great!
I'd been looking for a pair of retro-styled crochet-back gloves since forever. I don't buy leather, so finding these vegan suede ones was a special thrill. They are *exactly* the look I was going for, with the functionality of the padded palm and vented back that I wanted. They arrived promptly and the quality looks excellent. So 5 stars for looks and craftsmanship. However, the fit is not at all as advertised. I have fairly average female hands, measuring 8" around the knuckles. I bought the size S, which is advertised as being for 7.5-8" knuckles. They are WAY too big. They loosely fit my boyfriend's 9" hands. I tried soaking them in hot water to shrink the crocheted fabric, but that didn't work. My boyfriend doesn't wear cycling gloves, so I'll have to find another home for them. And it's back to the drawing board for me to find gloves I like. 3 stars for sizing. Please, Thousand, make the size S actually fit 8" hands and I'll buy three pairs!!
I had admired the design of these style of gloves for a while, and had my eye on the De Franc, but these are vegan, and that’s what I wanted! They’re comfy, and look cool!
I’ll be using these during the summer while I drive OTR. They feel light and airy, just what I need. Well made so they’ll hold up to my hard use. Steering wheel use only; I use all-purpose gloves for cargo work.
