Size & Fit
Portolano Fitting & Sizing In order to help you take good care of your gloves, follow these helpful tips:
Rings should be turned towards the palm.
Slide the glove on to the hand, working down each finger until the seams are straight and smooth.
When fitting the eight button length or longer, turn the hem down a couple of inches before pulling the glove on to avoid stretching out the hem.
When removing the glove, draw it off by the cuff until the fingers are reached. Loosen each finger tip and draw the glove off slowly.
Stretch or pull glove into its original shape from the finger tips and the hemline, to restore its fresh appearance. A glove size is equivalent to the measurement of the circumference of the widest part of the hand around the knuckles excluding the thumb, and rounded up to the nearest whole or half number.
