1910 - 1919  Gloves & Mitts


The development of the web moves from the full web to the one inch web. One, to one and a half inches wide the 1 inch web was sewn directly to the thumb and forefinger. Manufactures start using lace to connect the thumb & forefinger a feature that they call a "Lacing Devise" which ultimately leads to the "Tunnel Loop" made popular in the late 1920s. Sometime around 1915 gloves start to feature laces at the wrist as opposed to a sewn seam, "Which enables the user to adjust padding if desired" Player endorsements can now be used to help date some gloves.
