Glove sizes

Our gloves are sold in the following sizes - 6½, 7, 7½, 8 

To ascertain your glove size: 
  1. Pass a tape measure around the widest part of your hand - usually over your knuckles, excluding the thumb. 
  2. The result, in inches, is your glove size - e.g. if your hand measures 7 inches, you are a glove size 7.  
Glove size Inches Centimeters
6½
6.5 16.5
7 7 17.8
7½
7.5 19
8 8 20.3

 
Of course, there are times when you might not know the glove size, perhaps if you are buying our gloves as a gift. In that case, we would recommend a size 7, because this is the average size, and is likely to fit most people. Of course, if your glove doesn't fit perfectly, we are more than happy to exchange it - just contact us, and we will do our best to help. Special size requirements are always available on request.

Opera Length gloves

For our Opera length gloves, we also take a measurement for upper arm fit

To find your upper arm glove fit

Pass a tape measure around the midpoint of your upper arm - the bicep - and note down the circumference. If you don't have a tape measure, use a piece of string or ribbon and then measure that with a ruler. Please see below for the glove fit which your measurement matches to.

Glove lengths

Our gloves also come in a variety of lengths. To ensure you get the correct length for both your occasion and your look, it is worth checking when choosing your glove. Our gloves are measured in the traditional unit of measurement of button length (BL), which is equal to 1", and runs from the thumb seam (i.e. just below the wrist) up the arm. Our glove lengths are as follows: 

Opera length gloves

Our opera length gloves measure 16 BL (16") and sit above the elbow. They are perfect for opera and evening occasions.

Twelve-inch gloves
