The Earl — Back Colour: Cape: Black, Gift Packaging / Storage Box: No Thankyou, Lining: Chamois, Standard Size: Mens 10" (X-LARGE), Touchscreen palms (optional): No Thanks, Welt Colour: Cape: Crimson
In this day and age where cheaply produced, mass marketed items reflect the majority of the world' interest, it's refreshing that someone of more refined tastes can find items of exceptional quality that makes a subtle but timeless statement.
An excellent pair of gloves for a man can add just the right amount of style so he can declare to the world "I am not a lemming, I think for myself, I am a gentleman" in every sense of the word.
My gloves from Chester Jefferies gives me the appropriate amount of style for others who know where to look.
The fit and finish is exquisite and they are certainly worth the wait, knowing a craftsperson took the time and care to learn a craft that is timeless.
The Earl — Back Colour: Cape: Asphalt, Bespoke Size: Add new measurements, Gift Packaging / Storage Box: Yes Please, Lining: 100% Cashmere, Standard Size: Custom/Bespoke, Touchscreen palms (optional): No Thanks, Welt Colour: Cape: Divis
First off, do not get the box. It is just a box, not a nice or fancy box. Literally just a box. So don't get that.
Gloves are a PERFECT fit. Main colour (Asphalt) was a little lighter than I expected; more of a lighter grey; grew on me in a day, though, and are beautiful. Trim colour (Divas) is exactly what I expected and matches my hat and scarf very nicely. Cashmere is SUPER soft, and is nice and somewhat warm, though my fingers still get chilly on our cold Canadian days. Wrist goes a bit longer than expected and gloves are in general a little bulkier than expected, but I am biased because I had been wearing my Damacus D302 UltraThin Cabretta Police Gloves, which are basically skin-tight (though not quite perfectly fitting like these ones!)
If you are hesitating, I'd say go for it. Easily worth the cost and amazing to have such perfectly fitting gloves. I look forward to getting another darker pair, maybe The City Gent lined with silk, and will go bespoke again for sure.
