Hey, is it just me, or are my pinkies really short? It seems that every pair of gloves that I own, the pinky is at least a 1/2" too long. Is it only me? Is this an indicator of my other shortcomings :eek: ? I've never had any complaints, but I do sense maybe a repressed chuckle while naked in the presence of others :-[. Maybe I'm thinking of this wrong, maybe all of my other fingers and appendages are too long?......yeah, I'm sure that is it :)............. :p

Try Dainese... I had same problem when I tried on the Frank Thomas... Pinky too long and too wide... the Dainese fit me perfectly!

Try Vanson's custom gloves. As part of the process, you provide measurements for each finger.

kind of makes you wonder where the expression "it fits like a glove" came from?

I've known very few gloves to fit particularly well.

Why not "it fits like a hat"? It's much easier to get a good hat fit...

Maybe the expression "fits like a glove" was originally meant to describe something that didn't fit well at all. Kind of like "I'm as smart as a box of hammers."

er... do you mean "sharp as a tack"?

Because "sharp as a box of hammers" would then be a good twist.

As is stands, "Smart as a box of hammers" is pretty dang smart... have you ever tried arguing with a hammer? They always win.

Metal, by definition, is malleable. Therefore, the proper application of heat and pressure can force an outspoken hammer to recant his ill-thought argument and bend to my will. Inanimate objects, kneel before me!

Dinner time on the East Coast. Sapper is cranky. My apologies.
