Small hand problems (Gloves)

So ordered these gloves Alpinestars SMX-1 Air Gloves - Motorcycle Superstore in mens small. They were too big for me so I ordered a womens small instead. They fit very well. You guys ever do this? I'm a man btw lol

Sizing is all up to the guy making the garment at the time lol.. I have some axo stuff for the dirt.. I ordered a medium and it was small on my 7 year old, so I had to get a 2x and it fits kinda snug.. I'm a buck 68 so I wouldn't take it for anything..

Alpinestars gloves have gone to a more American sizing, instead of Euro. So they be a little roomier than previously noted. If the review guy from Revzilla can be believed, which I think he's trustworthy.

Only thing that's even relatively consistent in sizing, I've found, are boots. At least for foot length. Different brands are all over the place for width.

That makes sense. I bought my other gloves a couple years ago. I liked the Euro fit, for a small guy like me 5'6 150lbs lol. Their jacket fits amazingly!

I am 6ft & 145 pounds and finding jackets that fit me properly is pretty much impossible. I ended up finding a woman who does tailoring with motorcycle gear and had her custom fit my jacket to me. It wasn't too expensive but having proper fitting gear is always worth the money.

I mean... All kidding aside.. 9.5 is kinda small for a black guy... But I guess I'd be kinda big for a Jew (⬅️ kinda looks like me)
