    I use leather gloves all the time when I work in my yard and on my house. My current gloves are torn to shreds, so I need a new pair that will work with me and keep my hands safe. I never realized that different parts of the animal’s body could create better leather. I will have to look for some side and shoulder cut leather gloves.

      Thanks for the feedback, Burt! Many people don’t know that leather quality can depend on what part of the body it comes from. Hope you find a dependable leather glove soon!
