    So I bought a pair of gloves a couple weeks back from an inmate, after one ride the following happened. Aside from that the gloves are in tact. Any idea if I can have that section of a box stich glove repaired?

    Oh yes, my friend could do that. He is a very experienced cobbler and does lots of hockey equipment/gloves and has dome similar repairs on motorcycle gloves for me. Just a matter of flipping the gloves over, then removing the liner and sewing in new pieces or patching.

    Cost effective....most probably not.:wink:

    Ask him how much he would charge to replace a section

    He is a long way from me, probably much closer to you as the crow flies....:rofl

    I have done enough work/projects in his shop, I'd have to say an hour work. $50.00 an hour.

    Lousy material that suede type stuff, you know that it may even be synthetic leather, that is a bunch of chopped leather fibres binded together.Don't know about that particular brand you have there but sure is on some glove manufacturers product descriptions/specs.:eek1

    I had one of those...a rev'it celsius glove.

    They all do that. You have to glue that shit together to keep it from pilling. The knuckle protector on mine had a rough edge on the inside and it chewed through the leather after regular use. Chalk it up to experience and move on.
