What is your glove size?

There is a saying – fits like a glove! But even a glove can misfit if picked the wrong size.

How to properly measure your glove size?

To find out your glove size for our new “Attainable Luxury” line gloves you only need to measure your straight hand around the knuckles without the thumb.  Please use the more active hand, meaning right hand for right-handed people and left hand for left-handed people. Don´t pull the measuring tape too tight. Your glove size is your hand circumference measured in inches (rounded up to the closest figure).

If your measuring tape comes only in centimeters, the measurements should be following:

Just round your measurement up to the closest size in inches.
This is all the information you need to supply ordering Riina O “Attainable luxury” line gloves online.

However, if you are really aiming for the perfect fit, designed especially for your hand (every person´s hands are different!), there are a few other details to keep in mind.

The finger length for example. For our made to measure clients we supply the special measuring form, asking to trace their hand so we could measure the finger length and adjust the pattern personally. In case of longer gloves the arm measurements also come handy.
We then make a trial glove to test the fitting and once the glove is fitted and confirmed (and adjusted where necessary), the final pair of gloves is ready to be made!

Due to the quite lengthy process we kindly ask our clients to allow 3-4 weeks for crafting their personalised pair, along with the fitting. However the result is well worth it and once we have the pattern fitted, it can be reused for the following orders.

All our made to measure Lux line gloves are hand stitched at our London studio by a skillful craftspeople team.
