Find your Gloves Size

To find your size, measure the circumference of the widest part of the hand above the knuckles, excluding the thumb.

or

Because our gloves are made in Italy their size is based on the length of the middle finger in centimeters.  That is, from its tip to where it connects with the hand on the palm side.

For instance, 7 centimeter length of the middle finger corresponds to a size 7.

In most cases this number will be very close to the circumference of the hand in inches.

i.e., 7 cm length of the middle finger will be equal to 7 inches of the hand circumference.

This is why we can use the same size designation.  There will be few exceptions, so when in doubt we suggest using the centimeter size.

CLARIFICATION:
We also wish to clarify a descriptive term that seems to confuse some of our customers.

We describe our Women's gloves as being, 4bt, 8bt, 12bt or 16bt. The term "bt" (button) is a European term of an "above-the-wrist" measurement that corresponds to approximately an ‘inch’. In other words, a 12bt Opera Glove will reach approximately 12-inches above the wrist, 16bt approximately 16-inches, etc.

The term is not meant to describe the gloves as having attached buttons. If one of our models has attached buttons it will be unmistakably described as such.
