The gloves arrived on time as promised before Christmas. They are soft, and fit my daughter's hands perfectly even though they are not sized as usual (7,7.5,8, etc.). The great thing is that the fur trim stops cold air and wind from traveling up her sleeve and so she stays warmer. The leather is beautiful and the gloves look much more elegant than anything I saw in department stores, even ones with mink trim. All in all, they were a very successful gift.
