repairing gloves?

Ok so i bought these Mission gloves in early summer (may), and they already got a hole in my thumb. Any suggestions from those who have attempted to repair such a problem...

Dont post the "go buy new ones"....

Where's the hole located on the thumb? Like the actual padding? or the brown stuff. If it's the brown stuff you can get it stitched up at almost every hockey store.



That's what I mean by brown stuff

I used this place and got great results. Got my gloves back in about 3 days and the new palms lasted me another couple years. Good luck!

I've had the stitching come out on my thumb, which connects the palm to the gusset. I've repaired it myself doing a crap job with a $2 sewing kit each time.

Otherwise if it's a hole in the palm itself, you're looking at probably $25-30 plus shipping to get the glove fixed. I recommend HockeyRepair.com, they do excellent work. I just brought some gloves in to them last week and will get them back on Friday.

alot of people don't know this... but shoe fixing places can do a fantastic job and have access to various types of materials...

one guy down here in Calgary can put in anything you want... from cow, horse to heck even kangaroo hide or yes Clarino/NASH as well for about $30 bucks a pair

It's right where my thumb print would be. Its to the point where i go for a wrist shot and my thumb 50% of the time goes through the glove, messing my shot up.

I got Missions and off the top of my head, i dont think their leather. i think their's more of a cloth (first time buying gloves online, lession learned).

Try a shoe repair shop. I used to use one and it was cheap and worked great.

Yeah you can try a shoe repair place and see if they'll stitch it up. Sounds like you don't like them, why not save up for new ones?

Have patched my own gloves and have repalmed one myself.

I got a bag of leather scraps cheap from Egli's Sheep Farm when I was passing by that way on a trip. If you can find some cheap leather scraps you could try to patch it using button hole thread and a needle for heavier/thicker material.

Wouldn't recommend repalming yourself unless you have a fair bit of spare time and some patience. A local shoe repair place that does replaming will probably be your best bet.
