Hmm this is interesting. I’m not sure I’m measuring correctly. The widest part of my splayed hand is at the base of the thumb. That’s about 5” wide.Taking that jacket off was difficult. I’ve always sourced this by placing my hand flat on a table and measuring at the widest point, add 1/4”, and that’s never failed. I think visually the super thick hides just stay round, don’t become ovals and that’s why the look a bit bell like.
