Selecting the right size glove

How to size your hands for industrial gloves so you achieve a tailored fit

  1. Print out the Hand-Size-Guide lay it flat on a table. Lovely Hands – Final Hand-Size-Guide.
  2. Standing up, place your right hand over the blue hand outline, follow the written instructions, and keep your fingers together not splayed. Note the size number suggested and look for this in the ‘select a size’ option on the product page. Manufacturers recommend rounding up the size if you are in between.
  3. Other factors to bear in mind – if you are tall you tend to have hands needing the larger glove sizes. If your fingers are long or chunky you will need to go up a size or 2.

Depending on how stretchy the fabric you may get a better fit in your lower size.

Stretchy gloves – Ladies & men’s – Elite, 370, 341, 306
                            Ladies – 90066, 90068, 90065
My personal example;
The blue outline suggests I am between a size 6 and 7, closer to the 6.In stretchy gloves where I want to have my fingers right down to the ends I wear a 6. In leather gloves that do not have so much stretch I wear a 7. I have slim fingers.
Men – please see the table of measurements below and for each individual glove on the product pages under the description tab. If you check your measurements you can buddy up with someone similar and see what glove size they preferred.

If in any doubt contact me or order a selection to try on at home. Returning goods is easy, please see the policy.
