- Geier & Leather
Deer skin gloves straddle the line between dress and work gloves. In black or brown select grade deerskin they look great around town or grabbing a steering wheel. The medium weight tannery run deerskin of the tan gloves is a little thicker, and perfect for garden work, or general use. The Silky soft deerskin is nicely detailed with a metal slide-buckle, these gloves work hard, and look great.
Its been well on several years now, that we've been hunting for a good looking pair of gloves that we could wear to work, and around town. It took us awhile to find the perfect pair, but we're pretty confident that the buck stops here with Geier's Deerskin Slide-buckle Work gloves.
The medium weight deerskin gloves in Tan, provide the dexterity of driving gloves, and the durability of a genuine work glove. The metal slide buckle, is a nice detail, and for us really seals the deal on this work-a-day hero.
The select grade deerskin gloves, in black or brown, are a great driving glove. We think they're a little thin for rough work, but they're great for light chores.
All three color options look a lot better than a lot of imported designer gloves, but they won't faint at the sight of a little grit, grime, and sweat. Wearing a pair of these around town, we feel like a million bucks; In the workshop, garden, yard, or field, they're durable, functional hand protection.
These gloves are nicer than they need to be, and worth every last penny. Made in the USA from unlined, tannery run deerskin leather.
Measuring your glove size:
Measure around the widest part of your palm excluding your thumb. The measurement in inches, is your unlined glove size. If you have exceptionally long fingers, or will be wearing the gloves with liners order up a size. If you are left handed, measure your left hand, if you are right handed, measure your right hand.
Geier has been making gloves in Centralia, Washington since 1927. Their long history of attention to detail shines through in the superior fit and finish of their products.
Geier uses several grades of leather, but none that would compromise the wear or durability of their gloves.
Tannery Run leather is perfect for work gloves. The best, and poorest hides are graded out leaving leather suitable for grain (hair) side cutting. Typically leather of this grade will exhibit some scarring or marking. Under no circumstances is the wearing quality of the glove affected.
Select leather is the clearest leather available. Wild animal hides such as deer or elk are never perfect, however imperfections are kept to minimum.
Reverse (Suede) leather will typically have numerous scars, marks and blemishes. For this reason, the leather is used flesh (suede) side out. Again, under no circumstances is the wearing quality, or durability of the glove compromised.
Geier gloves are made to last, and will become even more comfortable with age. Kept dry, the natural oils from your skin will keep them soft and comfortable. Air-dry wet gloves; although they may stiffen, they will soon soften back up with use.
