I was hoping for a description of the proper fit and function of regular gloves - you know, driving gloves, accessory gloves. This seems to be a lost issue - you just buy gloves that sort of fit and live with them. Or buy elastic 'one size fits all' gloves and have numb fingers all the time.
Some day, before I die, I'd like a pair of gloves that fit properly when I buy them - fingers the right length, no constriction where they connect to the palm, no seams chafing, wrist covered properly. You know, gloves that 'fit like a glove'.
I have hard-to-fit hands so I'd appreciate a referral to a good bespoke glover. They don't seem to be too common in Silicon Valley.
They have a 'fit kit', which might be enough to get a comfortable, working pair of gloves.
Plenty of outdoor brands make excellent gloves. Yes, they might come with silly logos and ridiculous colours. But they keep your hands warm.
Not everyone is, however, and if you aren't, you're basically out of luck.
And aren't most outdoor brands elastic? Not good especially in the cold, where it constricts blood flow.
One of the arguments against his authorship is, "how would the son of a glove-maker have gotten the sort of education that would have produced such fine writing?" This reveals an ignorance of the sort of craftsmanship required to make gloves by hand in ye olden times or even today. Shakespeare Sr. would have been among the upper echelons of tradesmen and non-nobility.
Which meant that before the shift in definition, the belief that factoid meant "little fact" was itself a factoid. But I'm not a prescriptivist. I find that evolution of language, and how up in arms people get about it, interesting.
I think I get what you mean (they're good enough for most common activities) but that statement is true about literally all gloves.
I have so many gloves, they're indispensable to me and I'm glad there are so many good manufacturers now because that wasn't always the case.
My hand is about the size of a Mac keyboard. As in I lay it put flat and stretched I have my thumb on the fn to the left, my little finger on the right arrow to the right, the base of my hand at the bottom of the touchpad, and my index finger on the f8 key. I think the last pair I successfully bought was XXXL...and was still a bit small.
You mention you have a lot of gloves - what are they all used for if you don't mind me asking?
I have gloves for: Working on cars; Cold hiking, even colder hiking; summer mountain biking, winter mountain biking, armored downhill MTB gloves; summer commute cycling, winter commute cycling; weight lifting, and miscellaneous woolen gloves for when my hands are cold and I'm doing nothing else.
 some may have practical motivations, others ideological: i.e. those who believe proper tea is theft.
