Another reason is just the label sewn onto the cheap Paki glove. If it's something you never heard of, it will end up cheap. If it's A*, who sponsors big racers etc.. they can ask for more and people will pay. Racer billboards are money well spent, it makes people think your stuff must be the . Think Nike. The gloves won't be much different though, if at all.
