Hi there!

Would these work for pilot gloves?

https://www.amazon.ca/MEDIEVAL-RENAISSANCE-COSTUME-SWORDSMAN-GAUNTLETS/dp/B076X67RQ6/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=Men’s%2Bmedieval%2Bgauntlets&qid=1590530515&sr=8-1&th=1

They’re fairly economical, and in Canadian funds.

Cheers,
Aaron

I'm not a judge, but I'd say those look better than some of the recommended ones.

Thanks. I appreciate it. There are a few of us locally that are making pilots, and to save on shipping/funds we are looking at these gloves. What we're wondering about (that isn't very descriptive in the CRL) is the stitching. These gloves have it going diagonal, while I believe the screen used gloves are straight.

Those gloves would be fine. I really don't see why there would be any problem with them. They look somewhat similar to my gloves (though mine are from WampaWear).

Assuming the flare part of the gauntlet isn't too narrow the gloves should be fine its when they're too narrow you struggle to fit the commpad behind the glove.

The 3 lines on the back (darts) are the TIE fighter design, the accurate x-wing gloves tended to have longer stitching lines such as these from the uk, however i'm not suggesting you buy these over the ones you've found already Smile
