Most gloves are made for the younger guys, the ones that sit in the house and play video games

I'm built weird. If I had normal length legs I would be 6' 4", but I'm only 5' 9" . I'm 60" around the shoulders. I have to turn sideways to go through a normal size doorway. A lot of people think I'm into powerlifting from the way I look. I am very strongly built.

I basically got a large Scandinavian torso and frame, with short, stocky, Sicilian arms and legs.

Forgot your shoe size....Lol

I have a big head too. I don't know what my hat size is, but I have to leave most ball caps on the last peg or unhooked.

XL, I have to have pretty tough leather gloves for the Mill work. The ends of red pine logs are like porky quills the dryer they are the worse they are. I get Plainsman leather gloves at Sam's Club 2 pair $20.00 I get them wet the first time I wear them, that takes your hand shape. When dry again, Neatsfoot oil or Mink oil rub. I get about 2 months daily work use. Says they are made from Cabretta leather, whatever that is. Best I have found so far. At the Post Mill gloves are second only to safety toe boots, and really just as important.


your only allowed so many sunrises... I aim to see every one of them!

Bogmaster sells (still, i think) gloves at the trapping conventions. He claimed most trappers wore the larger sizes.

The only thing i know for sure is no one makes gloves big enough for OJ

Tractor Supply has a good selection of XL Gloves. Anything in Harbor Freight, Home Depot, and Lowes, just does not fit me.

I wear 2xl or 3xl when I can get them. Wiebke Trading in LaCrosse, Wisconsin sells excellent deerskin gloves in sizes up to 3xl.
They are the best work gloves I have found.

Keith



head 8 or 8 1/4 any hat I can find in the store I can open the adjuster all the way up and it might just get on my head but it won't be deep enough to stay there very long
3XLT or 4XLT in a button up shirt need looong sleeves to cover these ape arms
46x32 pants
16EEEE shoes
6' 2"
weighing in at 285 currently
and of course XXL gloves

my grandpa farmed and ran a masonry business for most of his life didn't wear gloves cause he would wear a pair out in a day

by the time he was 60 grandma had to get the buttons on his dress shirt his fingers were too big and callused to get the buttons any more. I would like to keep my dexterity so I use gloves

it doesn't surprise me trappers have larger than average hands , trapping builds a fair amount of hand strength.

Rex I still sell gloves and choppers. As you stated most are XL and more and more take XXl. And the deerskin gloves are real comfortable'
Though size varies with each different type. The XL elbow length choppers run big and fit most guys ,and some other types a XXl would be needed.

How do u like your gloves to fit? Im a freak about gloves, socks and stocking hats. I want to barely be able to get them on. I wear a L for most gloves but if i can get into a M ill do it. If socks stretch out in the least they find themselves in the trash. I typically snap my laces 2-3 times during the life of a pair of boots pullin them tight.
