Here is one of my favorites:

The leather coming out of the Rolin/Barraza factory over the past year has been outstanding.

The black and gray leathers are my favorites.

I will post some more photos of some other custom gloveslater this week .

These gloves are excellent quality at a reasonable price.

I can get the gloves made in varying degrees of stiffness depending on the preference of the customer.

One recent order was requested "extra stiff" so I had the glove made with thicker than normal leather, a thicker palm pad, and extra wool padding in the fingers. This makes for a very firm glove.

They will make the glove to the customers specifications, and the results have been great.

The Rolin/Barraza folks have been very receptive about accomodating special requests, including deletion of labelling, etc.

If anyone is interested in ordering a glove, be assured that I can get the glove made the way you want it!

Very nice. Almost tempting to order another one. GAM-04 is a great pattern.

Here is another one............

Model WR-437-2
11.5"
All black including embroidery
Ordered "extra stiff" which includes:
Thick/stiff leather shell
thick palm pad
extra wool in fingers
Delete model number label
Delete Rolin patch from finger
Delete Logo from web

This one has an incredible shape, and was stiff as a board from the factory.

The Rolin folks have been very accomodating with special requests, and this is a prime example.

We order the gloves with or without any or all labeling.

I kind of like all of the labels. :D

As you can see by the photos of the "blackout" edition Rolin, the glove can be made "naked" also.

Personal preference is what it is all about!!

I can get the custom exactly what they want !!

If you want "Made in Mexico by Barraza" on the thumb loop ties, I can get it done for you.

No charge........

This one came flared.

If you prefer a straighter thumb and pinkie, the glove can be shaped to your liking during break-in.
