Default Leather gloves with long fingers?

Anyone know of a brand or style of leather gloves with longer fingers? I've got long skinny hands and most gloves don't fit right at all for me. The woven dipped ones generally are alright but still aren't right. Sometime s I'd like to have regular plain leather but can find any that fit?

Ordered those Tillmans, not perfect but much closer than many others I've tried. Thanks!

I got the XL. Fingers are just about the right length, they're a touch big but not too bad.

Opposite of the problems I have my hands are large with thick fingers I try to get XXL gloves in leather or stretchy ones in fabric.

That sounds rough like you need army leather gloves without the wool inserts. Size 5 is the largest.

Mech, seems like you should be a welder then. I think of all the gloves I've used welding gloves are by far the worst fitting. Huge short fingers...

Funny you say that. I do wear military riggers gloves that come to a size 6.

The size 5 black gloves do work well for me without the liners.

Rural King has leather drivers gloves in XXL I order online if I can't find them local when I'm about to need new ones.

My fingers aren't short. My hands are like 10" long from wrist to middle finger tip.

Oddly enough, I like the Hardy brand green ones from harbor freight, about $3 each. They last about a week and I just toss them. I buy them under sized and let them stretch to fit my hand. It’s a bit uncomfortable at first but I enjoy the increased dexterity from a tight fit.

LMAO!

I just found out bout these last week while away on a job and picked up a couple pair (leather and fabric). They both have long enough fingers for me in the xxl size.
