I'm thinking about buying an 1175X (Buckskin) glove. Does anyone have any experience with the newer buckskin leather (not the X2). I would dearly love to find a white-label 1175 but think that's unlikely, unless someone here has one.

Please, let me know your thoughts/experience with it!

Thanks

The buckskin has changed over the years. The white label buckskin is my favorite (albeit heavy), very stiff with a dry buff feeling finish while the more recent stuff has a shinier feel. Like other oil-tanned leathers, it breaks in easily, but does not last as long.

The Glovesmith java is very similar to the new buckskin (not as shiny) and they have a 1175 pattern that I like a lot.

Thanks, Rous. I'm thinking about buying one they (Nokona) has on their web site. I've sent them an e-mail, so I hope to hear back soon.

Tease. It's an amazing glove.

Stiff as a board and twice as heavy. It is 28 oz. But the most beautiful glove I have. It is a much richer/darker brown than shows in the pics.
