Of course I cannot find my pic saved of the ORD, but this was the inspiration. Kind of wishing I did orange on black for the labels, but I am really happy with how it came out. Also, this is as stiff as my C55's. This "Pro Stiff" is no joke. The blue one came even stiffer. I am really impressed by the quality of these and would recommend it for the price and I will probably get another 1/2 of them. Both made in Vietnam.

Thanks. Code 55 Horween. One of the stiffest leathers used on the original tan USA made Rawlings HOH's.

I like them. Color schemes are not my cup of tea but these look great.

I love seeing weird and wonderful colour combos on custom gloves! These are gloves I never would have thought to create, but I think they look awesome. I would have to wear cleats a few sizes too big and a red nose to use these!

Is the first one your Macalester or Rey Ordonez inspired glove?

I was on the fence about getting a custom a2000 until seeing that amazing second one. What was the leather color (back/palm) and welting? I love that combo but the colors on the computer don't look right on the builder.

First one is more Ordonez, but works for Mac too.
Gabby- Proceeds of that glove went directly to the settlement the Mets are paying :D

The second is blonde leather, royal accents, and white welting. The royal in the pictures looks a bit lighter than it is in person.

If you posted this on Wilson's Facebook or Twitter page, you'd be famous haha.
Nice designs, I was gonna go with camel/navy as one of my ideas but heard that you already placed nearly the same order in February, lol. I should have just robbed these off your doorstep

Wow I would of never got these colors but they turned out great. Little too much for me. How stiff is that SS? I really want another custom but might go the blonde/black route. Ala Freddy Sanchez

"Also, this is as stiff as my C55's. This "Pro Stiff" is no joke. The blue one came even stiffer."

You cant close them when they come. Even with two in the pinky its ridiculously stiff.

The leather quality is surprisingly good. They dont have that plastic sheen/feel the stock gloves have.
