How to choose a thumb design of a leather glove?
Sometimes, a seemingly small detail like thumb design can make a big difference in the
comfort or functionality of a glove that is worn all day.
1. Straight Thumbs
Designed for non-rigorous activities. Least effective because they do not allow for natural
thumb motion, but are the most economical style because they require little stitching.
2. Winged Thumbs
Designed with an angled construction that allows for greater flexibility and efficiency than
straight thumbs. Good for pushing and pulling applications, often found on mid-priced gloves
and can be worn for extended periods of time.
3. Keystone Thumbs
Designed for superior movement and overall comfort. Ideal for applications where there is
extreme wear in the thumb webbing area, such as pulling wires or handling small pipes. Most
expensive thumb option due to extensive sewing.
