Bring Back Opera Gloves
To determine your glove size, measure across your knuckle on your index finger and wrap the measuring tape around you hand and back to the first knuckle, excluding your thumb. Kid gloves have a little "give", so a precise measurement is required. The sizes usually range for 6-8, including half-sizes.
Kid gloves require some extra care. Reshape each finger after wearing and smooth the glove back into shape. If you have a little smudge, you might try a clean, soft eraser. Leather gloves are expensive to clean and it is difficult to even find a cleaner who will take on the task. Store them carefully. Unlined kid gloves cost in the $200 range.
