Construction
When produces a quality pair of gloves, the first factor considered is construction, or cut. The two most common types are Clute and Gunn.

Clute    
   

Gunn
Gunn cut Extra comfortable because there are no seams on back. The palm side of the middle two fingers is a separate part of the glove pattern, and is sewn to the palm at the base of the middle two fingers. In full leather and leather palm styles, this seam is reinforced with a welt that gives additional resistance to wear in this critical area.

Cuff Styles

There are a variety of cuff styles to choose from. Most cotton and jersey work gloves have a snug knit wrist (1) while leather gloves have a slip-on or shirred (2) style cuff. Leather palm styles have safety (3)
or gauntlet (4) cuffs, or knit wrists.

Thumb Types

We have three types of thumbs; extra comfortable one-piece keystone (1), one-piece straight thumb (2) with no seam on the outer side, and wing thumb (3), with no seams on the wearing surface.

Fabrics and Leather

Our cotton gloves are economical, lightweight, but strong. The fabric is tightly woven to assure greater seam strength. Our jerseys are warm for year-round use. We use a full size die for comfortable, roomy gloves. Our flannel chore gloves are strong and moisture-resistant because two layers of material are bonded by rubber-based adhesive to produce the best chore glove on the market. Our PVC-coated gloves are waterproof and tough, yet flexible. We combine leather and cotton for our leather palm gloves.

Leather hides removed from the animal are too thick for commercial uses so they must first be cut into layers. Generally, a hide is divided into three layers.

Leather layers

The smooth outer layer, or grain side, is used for better gloves where "look" and dexterity are important. The bottom layer, the flesh split or suede, is used mostly in leather palm styles, most of which have linings to protect the hands against its roughness. We don't use the middle split because it has no tensile strength.

   
Leather grading

LEATHER GRADING
Wells Lamont uses only the finest quality cowhide in our leather gloves. All areas of the hide are graded during cutting, then separated into A, B or C grades. Wells Lamont uses primarily A & B grades in our retail products. Because each hide is unique in size and shape, they must be cut one at a time to yield the highest grade possible. The leather is then matched by color and weight to make the finest consumer presentation.

   
Sheepskin

SHEEPSKIN
Soft and supple grain sheepskin leather is used in tasks where optimum dexterity and sensitivity are needed.

Cowhide

COWHIDE
Cowhide is most commonly used in our leather gloves. To maintain our consistency while providing a product that is both supple and strong, Wells Lamont uses both side and belly leather. Side split and shoulder split leathers are best for leather palm gloves.

Deerskin

DEERSKIN
Deerskin leather, naturally soft and supple, is also warm and long-wearing. We use the finest quality deerskin in the industry for our work gloves.

Goatskin

NAPA GOAT
Napa Goat, or goatskin, has the highest natural lanolin content available, allowing these gloves to be thin, soft and pliable, while actually improving its durability. Best for medium duty jobs.
