Step 4: Pick Your Lining by the Season

Customers often ask: "Which lining should I choose?"  We have 3 options: Unlined, Silk (black or white), Beige Cashmere. Unlined is ideal for warm-weather sporting gloves. Many folks order gloves like the Goodspeed, Kearns, Gasset, and Lexington as "unlined." Our  genuine leather gloves naturally breathe well, and in the warm spring and summer months an unlined glove offers great movement, dexterity, and comfort. Silk is ideal for warm-weather dress/formal gloves, and for winter gloves in temperate climates. Many customers match a white silk lining with their Raleigh, Carolina, or Pippa gloves. Other customers in the southern US or on the west coast pair their Adelaides, Bennets, and Broughtons with a black or white silk (color is just a matter of preference). Cashmere is our warmest and most luxurious lining, the ideal selection for folks who expect to brave sub-freezing winter temperatures.

Step 5: Size It Up

FitzGerald Morrell provides two sizing options: Pre-Sized and Bespoke. Pre-Sized options reflect industry-standard sizing guidelines that are based on the circumference of the palm just below the knuckles. For example, a "6.5" ladies glove is a great fit for customers whose hands are 6.5inches around, at their widest point between the knuckles and thumb. We now offer sizing options for ladies from 6.5 - 8.5, and sizing options for men from 8.5 - 10.5. Bespoke sizing option allows our customers to design a glove that is uniquely tailored to the measurements and dimensions of their hands. We document your one-of-kind measurements using our FitzGerald Morrell "Fit Kit." More details on the bespoke process here.
