Lay your dominant hand flat, fingers together, palm facing upwards. Wrap the measuring tape around your palm, just below the knuckles, not including the thumb. Glove size should be measured in inches. Round up to the nearest half inch. For Proper Cloth gloves, we highly recommend purchasing a half inch larger size (e.g. if your hand measures 8.5″, purchase a glove size 9).
Hand Measurement to Glove Size
– If your hand measures 7.5″, choose glove size 8
– If your hand measures 8″, choose glove size 8.5
– If your hand measures 8.5″, choose glove size 9
– If your hand measures 9″, choose glove size 9.5
Note: Above conversions applicable to Proper Cloth gloves. May differ from other glove makers.
General Glove Information
Over time, leather gloves will form to the hand with wear. Proper Cloth leather gloves are not waterproof. Avoid getting wet, if possible. If they do become wet, air drying is recommended. If after drying the gloves are left feeling stiff, natural hand oils will soften them again with wear. For suede gloves, a waterproofing chemical treatment can be applied for protection.
