Most Helpful Customer Reviews
These gloves are everything I expected -- terrific construction, snazzy fit, stylish good looks and adequate breathability. They also look just like the Gaspar gloves Ryan Gosling uses in "Drive."
The downside is that when you first get them new, the palms are -too- smooth and slippery, and provide LESS grip on the wheel than your hand alone. I sanded mine down against rough concrete before they actually provided proper grip. This might not be an issue if you have a studded or alcantara-wrapped steering wheel, but as both the wheel and the shifter in my Z06 Corvette are leather-wrapped, it initially proved problematic.
It's not a deal-breaker by any means. Just be aware that save for spending months breaking them in, you'll need to grind them down for them to work properly right out the gate.
Not very form fitting, mainly just a leather glove with holes in it, not much of a driving glove. The leather is not too bad.
Other reviews seem to be pretty on track. The leather quality is pretty nice but the fastener and holes are a little roughly constructed, I'd have liked more careful knuckle spacing and a tighter fit around the wrist. Still, for the price they look to be pretty well put together. It was nice to find gloves without large brand logos.
Sizing, at least for the large size, seems to run a little bigger than I'd expect. My palms are about 10" around the center, with about 8" from base of palm to middle fingertip. The large size has near-perfect finger sizing but is a little too big around the base of the hand & pretty loose around the wrist.
