Reinforcements made of a 100% polyester knitted fabric that has been brushed on the outer surface are found at the backside thumb crotch, on the backside forefinger and the backside of the middle fingertip. The lower portion of the fourchettes and a partial sidewall below the forefinger are made of a finely knitted fabric.
