Guide on how gloves should fit part 3

How to take care of your gloves, number 2:

If your gloves get wet, lay them on a towel and let them dry naturally. Under no circumstances should you use a hairdryer, a radiator or direct sunlight. I once lost a peccary glove, and it laid outside in the water for a full day. It was soaked, and it took two days to dry it. Afterward, it felt a little stiff, but as soon as I put it back on the leather became soft again. If you were not able to dry the glove properly, you would likely see some water stains. In that case, carefully dampen the glove equally, so it is wet all around. Then let it dry, and just like with shoes, the water stains should disappear.

How to take care of your gloves, number 3:

If your glove is very wrinkled, you can use an iron on the lowest heat setting and use a dry piece of cotton to protect the leather from the iron. Lay the glove flat and without pressure, gently iron the glove. This needs some skill and is best done by professionals. Otherwise, you may run the risk of damaging your glove. Look for dry cleaners who specialize in leather, they should be able to help you. With a good leather glove, the lining will wear out long before the leather. If that is the case, you can have them relined.

Where to buy quality men’s gloves:

You can find gloves at thousands of places out there because gloves are often sewn at home, and so even larger brands produce all over the place. Every haberdasher carries gloves though usually, you will only find versions in brown and black. More exquisite gloves usually will set you back more. Make sure to go with natural linings such as Cashmere, Alpaca or wool and avoid polyester and fleece lining. A hand sewn glove will be more expensive than a machine sewn one simply because it takes more time.
