These gloves fit me, and they hold up well! One of my on-going pet peeves is that work clothing companies must think that small people do not do hard work.

You can see two pairs of gloves in the picture. The worn pair is twelve years old. I wore them throughout the several years that I did part time grounds keeping work pulling weeds, mowing, moving slash piles, etc. Since then, I have used them for trail maintenance, and general lawn work at home. A couple of years ago they finally wore through in the fingertips, and I did find another pair in size small. You can compare, and see how the older pair has worn.

The gloves are suede cowhide, and over time the suede has worn smooth on the hold pair, making them more slippery, and thus more dangerous when using tools. However, I certainly can’t complain, considering how old they really are! I still use them for hauling rocks and rough wood.

They are made with what is called the Gunn cut. The Wells Lamont web site says, the “Gunn cut [is] extra comfortable because there are no seams on back. The palm side of the middle two fingers is a separate part of the glove pattern, and is sewn to the palm at the base of the middle two fingers. In full leather and leather palm styles, this seam is reinforced with a welt that gives additional resistance to wear in this critical area.”

In all the years of use, not one seam failed, and although I didn’t know about the “cut, ” I have to say that they are indeed comfortable.

The small size is hard to find, but if you have very small hands and do hard work, it’s worth the search.

My only complaint (other than being hard to find), is that I wish the cuffs were either longer, or had some sort of wrist fastener instead of elastic. Sometimes the cuffs catch on things or flip up and get in the way.

I wasn’t sure how to rate the color... they are work gloves... who cares?
