French wool/leather gloves, surplus
The US Army developed a Very Nice leather & wool glove during the Second World War. Long after the Americans ditched them, the French army was still satisfied with their copy - according to the tags, some of these are made in the 80's! A very nice pair of military-gentlemanly fashion.
Top fabric probably 100% wool, with leather palm and thumb. No lining inside the thumb, but everything else is woollen. Seems pretty high quality.
We didn't find any size markings on these. The sizes might vary, but most are very close to size Medium / 9. Thanks to the woollen half of the construction, these do form to your hand better than full leather or cotton lined gloves. If you have larger hands and these feel a tad tight at first, you could try soaking them up in water and wearing until about dry.
Genuine military vintage
Old stuff, seemed practically unissued. The tags say these have been made at least in the 70's and 80's. Probably earlier too, as the design dates back to WW2. And oh, these do smell like naphtaline, it'll probably fade off in use.

These were very stiff when I initially got them but broke in fairly quickly and are reasonably warm, I could fit a thin pair of woolen gloves underneath when I first tried them on but having worn them for a few days without a liner they have shrunken and I can't get them on with a liner already on so I would recommend choosing how you want to wear them as soon as you get them
Only negative I can find is that the stitching on the little finger side of the ring finger is a bit weak, it gave on one glove right at the end after two hours of wearing them and I can see it starting to come apart on the other glove, not difficult to mend but it is somewhat annoying when you're only halfway home in pissing rain

Mine had a wool lining throughout, with the exception of the thumb.
Amazing value for the price.

Vähän hassun pituiset sormet; keskisormelle napakka ja pikkurillillä väljää melkein sentti. Tosin kastelemalla ja pitämällä kädessä pari tuntia märkänä kokoerot tasottui.
Haju senverran kammottava että kadulla vastaantulevat koirat kiinnittävät huomionsa siihen. Ehkä se tuulettamalla häviää..
Villaselkämys muuten pitää yllättävän hyvin vettä ennenkuin kastuu kokonaan läpi.
Omaan silmään hyvännäköiset.
Yksi tähti pois sormien hassuista kooista ja hajusta.
