Soft and lightweight American deerskin. Deerskin has a beautiful grain finish and requires very little maintenance. Very good abrasion resistance and tolerates moisture well. A staple, basic dress or riding glove with an inch shorter cuff than our Classic Deerskin glove. All purchases are cut and hand sewn to order. Please allow one week for product to ship! All leathers come from natural hides which may contain scarring, giving each pair its own character.
Measure around your palm... If you don't have a soft tape measure.. use a string, mark it, lay it flat and measure it. This will give you your general size. 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. Deerskin should fit tight to begin with and loosen up after a wear or two for a perfect fit.

Really nice, well made gloves. However, I highly recommend to pick one size down - they stretch a lot, mine after a few wears feel a bit big and clumsy.
Packaging could be better for an expensive item and could've prevented damage. It came in a plastic bag mailer with just the gloves. Those mailers have the peel off sticky seal.The mailer just fit the gloves. Whoever packaged it wasnt careful and the sticky part of the seal got on the gloves and it peeled a bit of the top layer off the leather. I had to go in with a conditioner just to get the sticky residue off. Obviously can't be fixed with that. It's not a big damage. I'm keeping it mostly cause I don't want the hassle. Plus this was a replacement item as the first had scaring on the leather that I personally didnt want even though you come to expect that from leather like this. It would've been nice if the gloves were wrapped before placing inside the mailer. I didn't expect it to get damaged so easily which lends me to believe that this leather is more delicate than I expected. Time will tell to see how it holds up.
The fingers were to large for me , width is nice , Mayer is high quality, just wish it were a better fit a
Very nice gloves. I guess I must have a very common hand size. I am impressed with how perfect the size M finger lengths fit my hands. It fits me like a heavy duty golf glove (I wear size L golf gloves). I will probably get another pair for myself and a gift for a friend.
Great gloves. The fit is perfect. My hand width measurement is 8.5 inches and I sized down to the Small which is at 8 inches. The deerskin shaped to my hand after a few wears. Super soft interior and exterior. Stitching seems good. Finger length is perfect as well. Breaks right at the wrist like you'd expect with a shorty glove. I've only had these for a week or so, so I can't really comment on longevity just yet, but my pair feels really nice after wearing for about 5 consecutive days. Nice warmth in the 40 degree low temp I've worn them in so far. Great color and quality. Recommended.
