Quality gloves that really look the part.
on 6 February 2015
This is a review for the brown gloves (2014 Winter New Cashmere Lining;True to UK Standard Size).
After carefully measuring my hands width and length I opted for the medium sized gloves which is the recommended size for my hands. The gloves actually fit perfectly for me. These are specfically the 2014 new range rather than the older 2013 range). If you opt for the amazon prime version of these gloves then at the time of writing this review you will recieve the older 2013 range gloves which run small so you will need to purchase a size or two up. The 2014 range however really do fit as recommended so if you carefully measure your hands you should have no problem finding the right fit, assuming all of the different sizes run true.
The gloves themselves are very comfortable with the inner cashmere lining and they are not too long to interfere with the cuff of your coat or clothing. The leather is of a good thickness and are supple enough to allow you to easily make a fist so you won't feel like you are wearing oven gloves! Quality wise they really look the part. The brown is a very dark brown, much darker than indicated in the photos and in some lights can almost look black. This wasn't an issue for me as I was expecting this from reading other reviewer comments.
I tested these gloves on my samsung s5 phone and each finger was easily able to control the screen without mistake. I assume this will be the same for all phones. My main issue here is that I have a finger scanner on my phone which obviously means that unless I disable that feature I won't be able to benefit from these gloves but I thought it worthwhile to try just to indicate the effacacy in this review.
The gloves come very nicely presented in a small box that has a decorative ribbon on the lid. The box opens without having to remove the ribbon and the gloves are in a small pouch inside. The presentation is very good and would be an ideal gift without further wrapping. As other reviewers have commented, the quality of the gloves is outstanding and you would be forgiven for assuming that they were much more expensive than the £21 (including postage) that I paid for these.
Overall I am very pleased with these gloves in all regards and now that we are having some wintery weather and icy mornings these will be ideal for me.
