Yet another amazing Glovesmith Rous. These last 2 wheat gloves look fantastic. Just love the look of the darker label against the tan. Great idea of widening the crossbars.
It's awesome to see to what extent Bart and the guys at GS will allow you to customize these gloves. I can't think of another company that will do all of the things GS does, especially for a US made glove.

Also, great gesture of giving your SLCS to your father in law. I am sure he was thrilled.


You guys are killing me. I don't NEED another glove....hmm, a 1275 H web with wider cross bars... arrggh.

Wow, that is a sweet glove! Old school, classic chunk of leather.

Me, being the sick individual that I am, would use it in the OF. Of course, I played for years with a hand me down softball glove in the OF.

But seriously, enjoy!

When I had this glove made, I knew the hand opening was large and asked Bart to shorten the button lap a bit. That left the lap too tight across the back of my fingers, but not tight enough at the opening. The Rawlings RV23 has the same potential issue, which they resolve with an extra piece. I decided to try the same thing with teh GS and punched a few holes so I could twist the shell a bit to create the same curve. Works beautifully
