Nice gloves - poor stitching.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Leather Emporium Mens New Black Soft Leather Driving Gloves (Apparel)
I purchased a pair of these gloves 10 days ago and have worn them for driving locally about 6 or 7 times. They are made of beautifully comfortable soft leather and have a warm lining. However (there is so often a however or a but) there is a major problem with the stitching. On both gloves the stitches on the rear of the thumb have split and the leather is rapidly opening up. This is not because the gloves are a size too small in fact they are a tad too large which is OK for me. The problem appears to be that the gloves are badly proportioned. The leather is too tight around the thumb area and generous elsewhere. I must also add that the micro stitching is showing signs of breaking at other places such as the 3 rows on the glove backs. The stitching is obviously done by machine and the thread used is far too small and not strong enough. This is all such a pity as the gloves are so comfortable, I am going to attempt to over sow the weak point otherwise I will purchase one of the more expensive pairs sold here - which in hindsight I should have done in the first place.
