    You own 9 or more terrariums. Your softball team is named The Snowbirds. You relish the taste of chicken. You lament you didn't attend a Floridian University. You named your daughter Alli. This is your glove - 272964478868.

    I’ve been looking for a 12.4” for a while. Thanks for the heads up. Haha.

    Ha! So if you buy some leather (any leather that can be made into a glove), Bart will turn it into a glove for you. He did tell me that Gator is actually (usually) softer than you'd think.

    If there were a way to buy one Horween hide, I'd do the same.

    BTW, here it is. Looks to be one of the older 12.5" patterns.

    Usually, companies do this for some sort of promotional thing or as a special gift.... but I just realized what your next post will be.. so allow me...

    "But, why!?"

    I wish that Glovesmith would go back to using buffalo. I always thought that their application of that leather was better than Nokona's.

    My son has a buffalo Nokona and the leather is awesome, but later Nokona buffalo leather was way soft. Tanning matters just as much with buffalo as steer. Another team dad showed me a Nokona ALL kangaroo mitt he found at a garage sale. Oh man was it thin (kangaroo leather is strong, but thin... and it can stretch too. Now Nokona just uses it on backs (as a lightweight alternative to super skin or mesh).
