Hard sayin' not knowin. We don’t know how hard you work or what kind of dumb stuff you'll be doing in them. What we do know is that our gloves outlast hardware store gloves about 5 pairs to 1.
We can’t offer a guarantee because our gloves are a handmade wearable product. Eventually, by wear and tear or pterodactyl, they'll wear out. We take a lot of pride in what we do and we do it really well, so we want you to be satisfied. If you think you did not receive a good value from your gloves get in touch and we'll do what we can to make the situation right.
A bit of occasional glove love goes a long way.
It depends how hard you run them and what you're doing but eventually your gloves will dry out and need an oil change. This is a good time to condition them.
If you're working or playing in wet environments, you can waterproof them (after conditioning) for an added layer of protection.
Nope! Not required. Some people like to use it at first. Some people don't.
Using Skidmore's Beeswax Waterproofer, of course. Start by warming up your gloves in the oven. This opens up the pores of the leather. Then rub beeswax all over the gloves. ALL OVER. Put them back in the oven to help the wax set into the leather. Repeat three times for wicked good coverage. Repeat the entire process anytime you need more waterproofage.
You bet. In fact your gloves prefer it. Just make sure to use the conditioner first, as the beeswax makes an impenetrable shield around the glove, and we want that conditioner to soak deep.
Honestly, we never do. The grit, gouges & patina are part of your story and will make you look really cool on the internet. If you are going to the opera and absolutely must clean them, use saddle soap. If you've just cleaned your saddle and are fresh out, you can use a bit of dish soap and water as a backup. Use an old (or your enemy's) toothbrush to clean seams and hard to reach spots.
Nothin but goat.
Our leather comes from North America. The majority (~85%) comes from the New England and Tri-State area while the balance (~15%) comes from Quebec and Ontario.
Quite warm. Depends where in the world you are and how warm your hands run.

Goat leather is a natural material that comes from goats. Like butterflies or fingerprints, no two goats are exactly alike. We do our best to standardize the color of the hides we use, there is an inevitable amount of variation among the color of hides. We celebrate that every pair of gloves we make is unique. Once you've worn them in, the patina, look and feel is entirely yours.
