Leather Gloves Need Restitching on one Finger (Suggestions) - March 24, 2009, 03:15 AM

I used the search function but all I found were topics on leather repair. I have a glove that needs to be restitched on one finger. They are AGV gloves and I like the way they feel and fit. They have never been down, but one fingers stitching has let go and the tip of my left index finger shows through. I do not want to trash the gloves I just want to get them stitch back up and repaired properly so as in a get off it will not open back up and expose my hand/finger.
Is there anyone that could either point me in the direction of a good place to get my gloves repaired or is there something online that can guide me in repairing them myself. I am looking for something that will instruct me in proper stitching and thread to use to minimize the possibility of the glove coming apart in a get off. I am not opposed to taking it to someone to have them repaired properly, but if I can do it myself properly I would rather not pay someone to do it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

I had the exact same thing happen to a pair of Held Thrux gloves, left side. I bought a curved needle and thread and have just been too lazy to try and fix it.

OSD Held might stand behind their glove, call em up and see if they will fix or replace it for you.

Not that I can't just want to make sure it is done right. I know they use different stitching techniques for leather suits and gloves than on regular clothing garments.

Thanks for the response.
