Holes in gloves

My poor gloves have some new holes in them.

I LOVE these gloves to death (They're the sherwood eclipse ones) and really can't bear to part with them. The tops are in great condition, the palms...not so much.

What should I do?

*Tear*

Why? Amost as dumb as the top of your stick has to have a little slip of tape on the knob.

TI,

almost any tack or tailor shop can repalm them for you and it will not cost very much. Its Calgary...you guys gotta have a TOn of Tack shops! You could also go to a fabrics shop and pick up something that can be glued over the original palms to cover the holes?

I'm going to keep them for as long as I can and pull some BS. There's a place in Medicine Hat that does repair so I may ship them there.

Bring one of your gloves to a fabrics store, and one of their specialist will advise you.

I covered the holes in my palms with duct tape.

Put a layer inside the glove (with the sticky side out), then a layer on the outside, so that the tape sticks to itself wherever it's not sticking to the palm; helps it hold together. It seems to be working pretty well; more or less waterproof, and it doesn't seem more slippery or anything. It's a little ghetto, but it's a hell of a lot cheaper than new gloves or repalming.

I din't have a lot of money growing up so I couldn't afford new gloves. I got my pair re-palmed at a leather shop. I was a great job and better quality than the original palm.

I fixed mine with a thin piece of leather I bought by the foot. With needle and string, it took me an hour, and it cost me $3 all in all. With that piece of leather I feel the ball much better, so I would not hesitate cutting the palm of a new pair to replace with with the leather.
