Post break in leather?
I got a pair of leather gloves, They fit alright but seem pretty tight. Not too much mobility. Do leather gloves need a little "break-in"

they will fit better in a few days of use. i would rub mink oil on them helps with braking in and waterproofs them ;)

My oil of choice for leather is Neatsfoot oil. The leather will soften up and get more comfortable over time.

I just got my first pair of cold-weather gloves today. Even at 50 degrees the air was getting too cold in the breathable parts of the regular gloves (between the fingers). Thinsulate is the key to winter gloves, I learned.
