Ok, so what are you doing different? I'm not trolling. I mean, I'm buying a pair of gloves from you! Just trying to understand what you do different to allow you to use a stronger thread than the others. Is it that your leather is that much better/stronger? Are you reinforcing around seams somehow? What about the argument that more holes = less strength? ie: somewhere to blow vs. one continuous piece of material (cowhide, kangaroo etc.)?
