These leather cycling gloves are hand-made in England at one of the finest glove makers in the world. Each pair is meticulously hand-cut and sewn in the glove maker's small workshop. These gloves are constructed of top grade African hair sheep leather that is remarkably thin, supple and breathable but also very strong. The craftsmen finish the gloves with cut out knuckles and custom perforations to lend further comfort to the design. The palm and thumb feature a thin padding that absorbs road shock but is not too bulky. After several rides, these gloves will mold to the shape of your hand, creating a near second skin. What's more, they will provide you with an old-school cycling farmer's tan on your hands. 

Sizing: measure your hand around the knuckles with a tape measure.

Small - 7 to 8 inches (17.75cm to 20.5cm) sold out

Medium - 8 to 9 inches (20.5cm to 22.75cm) sold out

Large - 9 to 9 3/4 inches (22.75cm to 24.75cm) sold out

Extra-Large - 9 3/4 to 10 1/2 inches (24.75cm to 26.75) sold out

Note: The gloves will be a bit snug fitting when you first put them on. It will take several rides to fully break them in and have them mold to the shape of your hand. To remove the gloves after each use, grab the cuff on the inside palm and reverse the gloves while pulling them off. Sweat will eventually eat away at the leather without any care, so it is important to regularly clean the gloves and apply glove balm to maintain the integrity of the leather.

Reviews:

"...its most striking product pays tribute to the brand's legacy in leather: short-finger and long-finger gloves...because leather acquires character as it ages, and absorbs the ravages of water, sweat, grease and abrasion, devotees will happily pay more for a product that has not only a longer life than fabric versions, but also a more beautiful one." - Bill Strickland, Bicycling Magazine, September 2015 issue
