As per gloving traditions, your size is determined by French inches. You find your size by measuring the circumference around your palm at its widest point (without the thumb). If you measure in centimeters, you can simply divide the number by 2,7 to get your personal glove size in French inches.
Glove sizes come in half and full sizes – between size 6 and 8½ for women and size 7 and 11 for men.
You gloves should be tight at first, as they will stretch to your personal shape as they are worn in – just like a good pair of jeans.

Founded in 1811
While Napoleon Bonaparte was facing his last battles at war, the initiative to build a glove factory in Randers, Denmark – known for its fine glove-making – was taken by O.C. Kellermann. He was a merchant with international experience, and so he gathered a group of skilled glove cutters and tanners from France and founded Randers Handskefabrik with 20 craftsmen.

Crafting 20 pairs a day
The seamstresses were trained for at least a year before they could master the delicate full piqué technique. This overlapping technique is commanded in millimetres, one stitch at a time, without being able to see the stitching on the other side. Therefore, also called glove blind-stitching. The technique is still used today, only mastered by a few in the world.
