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.
