Look for "Tillman" or TIG welging gloves.

Those welding gloves are a great match, and a lot cheaper

Harbor Freight has the right color welding gloves, but the suede is too tick in the hands. TIG gloves a nice, thin, soft leather in the hand. Used them for my HTT, and I've seen them used for Dengar's gloves, etc. I can also see them used for Luke or other Snow Speeder pilot's gloves.

Found the same pair and pic on Amazon... unfortunately WAY overpriced ($200)... http://www.amazon.com/Superior-335PTIG-Precision-Pigskin-Glove/dp/B00BHLQXK2

So, I think I may have found what you need...I just ordered them ($20 for three!- and 10% off first order)

Let us know what the gloves look/feel like when they arrive...

the reason is that sometimes the gloves pictured in the ad have no logo on them ...
but..
when you get them..
they actually have the manufacturer stamped in large letters on the cuff.....
this happened to one of our members at NSB who ordered some for his Hoth Commander

the large logo renders them not useable....
unless you cover the cuff with another fabric to cover the logo...which is a pain...

I'll let you know and post pics as soon as I get them. Anyone else interested may want to wait till we see. Actually, I will try to call their 1-800 Monday to ask if they are plain.

I had already sourced grey leather to make new cuffs for my big arms, and to fit properly over the sleeve. They have already shipped.

They arrived today. Overall- Will do.

Good- color (offwhite), material (leather hand, suede cuff), No Logos, cost (3 pair for under $20)

Other considerations- light yellow thread, no separation between cuff and thumb-most pics have seam for thumb, trigger-finger seam.

Mine are supposed to be here on Wednesday.

to weather my door gunner gloves, I ground Xerox toner into the leather, rubbed it hard with paper towel, and then gruond my hands into the dirt in my yard.

this is the effect. I shot clear flat over it to help seal the crud in.


you can really see what they look like here

I had a big problem when it came to my gloves...
my fingers are incredibly short and incredibly fat..and my hand small...
so..
I ended up having to buy some gloves from Sportsman's Guide that were surplus from somewhere that I can't remember (it was a long time ago) and I had to actually put darker gray cuffs on them...
these gloves are really flexible with a leather palm and fit my crazy hands pretty good...
