How to Determine Parade Glove Size

At Glendale Parade Store, we’re proud to provide high-quality parade products to military units, first responders, schools, groups and more. Among our most popular items designed for use during parades are our gloves. These aren’t just any gloves available at your typical local retailer. Parade gloves are designed to be durable while also presenting a professional and polished look for a uniform appearance. And while you want everyone in your group to display a sleek, matching outfit, getting the right size is all about individual fit. That’s why we offer a parade glove sizing chart to help ensure that every customer gets a comfortable and snug fit for their hands.

How to Properly Measure Your Hands

Determine Glove Size Picture

If you’re wondering how to measure hands for gloves, simply refer to the graphic pictured here. The measurement used to determine size is the circumference around the palm at the knuckle area. This ensures that the gloves will slip over your hands easily while still offering a snug fit. Be sure to keep the measuring tape straight across the knuckles in order to get an accurate measurement. Then, compare the numeric measurement with our parade glove sizing chart to determine the correct size.

While most customers fit a small, medium or large glove, we offer a wide range of sizes at Glendale Parade Store to accommodate those with a wider or narrower palm. With sizes that go up to XXXL, just about everyone can find a great fit by ordering parade gloves from our site. We also offer special sizing for youth products, so look for age recommendations when selecting a children’s glove product from our site.

Choosing the Best Glove Style

At Glendale, we offer a wide variety of glove styles to suit any type of parade or special event. From simple white formal gloves to honor guard gloves to rolled hem gloves, you can find the right match for your uniforms when you shop at Glendale. We also offer parade gloves in a range of colors, allowing you to create a custom look for your uniform. The great news is that you’ll find that the same measurement rules apply for several styles of parade gloves available on our site. Our cotton glove sizing chart and nylon glove sizing chart use the same rules and sizing measurements, so you’ll order the same size in any of our styles. Please note that select parade gloves are offered in a one-size-fits-most style. These gloves are typically made with a stretch material that offers a comfortable fit regardless of your hand measurements. We also offer leather gloves, fleece gloves and other popular styles that are great for cold-weather events.
