If you like more or less room you could go up or down from there. See illustration by going to top of the website and selecting About :: Sizing.

The gloves are quality and warm. They are breaking in nicely. My only complaint is the stitching along the inside of the right hand pinky finger is a bit off. When I make a fist the stitching runs across the joint of my small finger, causing the inner stitching to dig in, which after a while is quite painful and leaves an indention. I was hoping the leather would soften and work itself out but no luck so far.
This is the first time I invest in leather gloves. As I mature, I am developing the like of well broken in leather gloves. That brought me to Sullivan Gloves Co, and this are the best gloves my hands have been in. I ordered the goat roper and the deer skin roper, both on size M following the measurements tips on the website. Goat skin fits a little tighter than the deer skin but its all good because I believe with time and wear they will stretch a little and will mold to my hands.
These lined goat ropers are truly the greatest of all time! Durable enough to tackle farm chores and stylish enough to wear out on the town. The insulation is just right for moderately cold weather and the goat skin provides enough water resistance to keep them dry.
A little tight at first but after a few wearings they are beginning to soften up and fit much better. The deerskin ropers- lined were perfect from the start but the Goat- ropers will probably get more use as work gloves. Thanks for the great product.
