The big difference, in my experience, is not only that I did NOT find the listed size one size smaller (as did other customers), but that it was accurately sized by the manufacturer. To be specific, my correct glove size is 7 1/2. However, because so many reviewers wrote in that the glove ran small, Based on that, I ordered an 8. Many reviewers wrote that the glove was tight. I am assuming they meant tight in the circumference of the fingers and the palm of the hand. I have a lot of experience buying gloves as a customer of the glove bar at Saks Fifth Avenue in the 1960's when shopping with my grandmother and mother. They, along with the saleswoman taught me how to properly try on leather cashmere lined gloves--you plant your elbow with your wrist standing straight up and slowly work each finger up towards the webbing of the fingers. It's fully on when the cloth is fully seated in the finger webbing. The leather will stretch in the circumference-it takes a few wearings. IF the fingertips bend over the top, IT IS TOO BIG. If the middle between the fingers won't seat in your finger webbing, IT IS TOO SMALL. It will only stretch in the side to side direction, the length will not stretch. Therefore, I should have ordered a 7 1/2 (although they were out of stock of that size). If you are finding the glove too small in the circumference of the fingers, but OK in the length- it probably is the right size. Make sure you are putting it on correctly, and give it a chance to stretch. This advice only applies to real, quality leather gloves. ******
