You have submitted a sample of two styles of men’s gloves. Style #G47AC201 is a man’s lined and insulated glove made of pig suede leather. The glove also features fourchettes and sidewalls made of pig suede, an elasticized wrist, and a vented cuff.

Style #G47AC202 is a man’s lined and insulated glove with a complete palmside and backside made of pig suede leather. The fourchettes, sidewalls and folded cuff are made of a rib knit acrylic fabric.
