    “Wolverine Horsehide”???

    I was hoping for Badger Cowhide. Or maybe Ferret Pigskin.

    What’s that about the distance from the tip of the index finger to the wrist?

    Isn’t that a young Rodney Dangerfield?

    Popeye Dangerfield.

    If that’s not the perfect name for a Gene Hackman villain I’ll eat my gloves.

    Hey – my grandfather ran the factories that produced these gloves, and I can tell you that if the ad says they are “soft as lambskin and tough as nails” then they damn well are! (Or were…)

    He used to give us factory “second” gloves to all of us kids for Christmas. He once gave me a “pair” consisting of two left handed gloves, telling me that if I turned one around the pair would work just fine.
