Used the "Search" function above and typed "Gloves Gaunlets" and found these threads for you.

I also know that Customs-props carries them as well, both in real and psuedo leather.

Yeah, I was about to suggest the same thing. I got my gloves from custom props. For the most part I am really happy with them. They look great and fit well on my tiny girl hands. However, I wore them trooping for the first time this past weekend and they stained my hands, fingers, and bottom sleeve black. Does anyone else have these gloves? Has this happened to anyone else? If so, do they eventually stop doing that?

It's likely that they will not stop leaving stains on you unless you can wash out the excess dye that's in them. Unfortunately, they could get ruined if you tried to wash them.

Yeah, I considered that. I may try to turn them inside out and give them a really good wipe down.

I'm not sure if they're still available, but I've been contemplating buying a pair of these for a while now...

http://www.rebellegion.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=35875

I have a pair of Damascus gloves as well as a pair from Leather Mystics. While the Damascus are quite comfortable, my only complaint is that they have a big ugly seam around the wrist area. I know that most gauntlets have this seam, but the seam on these gloves is really thick because the gauntlet is made of a much thicker material than the hand part of the gloves. So it looks a little off. They still look nice, but it does sort of bug me.

The Leather Mystics gloves are thicker and look more "even", but the flare isn't as accurate. And they also have a tendency to bleed a little. But they are cheap...

I'm wearing the Damascus in this picture...


And the Leather Mystics in this (much older) picture...

Unfortunately most of those links to the gloves are dead or the glove is discontinued.
The leather mystics gloves don't seem to have the 3 vertical strips is that mandatory. Is the flare wide enough they look almost tight on you Alex

Greg, I don't know where you got that information but it's WAY wrong. The Standards simply state:

Quote:
8. Black gauntlet-style gloves (flared leather or pleather preferred, cloth or rubber gloves will not meet standards).


That's it. Nothing in there about strips.

The Leather Mystics gloves are flared, but not a lot. So it's not extremely accurate, as I mentioned. There is a flare to them but it's not as large of a flare as you usually see in the movies.
The Damascus have a much more accurate flare, but those aren't perfect, either. The thick gauntlet going into the extremely thin hand of the gloves bothers me. It's a small thing, but it does bug me. But they do still look pretty good, and really, when I've got the outfit on, I'm probably the only person who notices that about the gloves...

The SA gloves look like the best choice, but I have no idea if they're still being offered or not.

I've been burned by what the standards say or don't say before, I just wanted to make sure before I make a purchase
