Big Gloves please

Anybody know a shop that has a big selection of gloves to try on, various sizes and maybe what brand I should look into for better size accuracy?

Extra long fingers make for a very interesting perspective on a glove buy.

I bought a pair of Alpinestars Gloves XL size and it seems that a XL in China is a large to medium-ish in the U.S. Well as far as A-star goes for this brand of glove anyways.

My pair of XL sized mountain bike gloves fit me perfectly, so I figure, maybe I should go same sized motorcycle glove. I proved myself wrong. Well $55 poorer I have learned a life lesson lol. I might even look into a tailor shop or maybe even a boot shop to see if they can do surgery to a pair of gloves. Thanks for any help in advance!

Motorcycles Unlimited on 1960 is the only place I've been to that knows how differant brands fit and they measure you correctly. If they don't have what you need they'll order it. 281-444-0545
