Gloves: Joining fingers together

So, some gloves join the pinky and ring finger together for protection, esp. for the pinky. Mine don't and I would like them to but I don't want to buy a new set as I just got mine.

Does anyone make something that I can put on my gloves to join the 2 fingers together securely?

That'd be a custom job.

Try Todd at Heroic Leathers. See if he can do it. He does a lot of repair/alteration/modification work on leathers besides his own brand.
Good guy, too. Helped me out w/ the elbow on my Dainese suit.

Just bring it to a local leather/shoe repair guy, that's where I had my Dainese jacket fixed after a crash.

True. Although I got a pair of inbred gloves, and it didn't take me any time at all to get used to them. I don't even notice when I swap back and forth between full-fingered gloves, which happens often.

Get some "outdoor" polyester thread and sew them together, if they have outside seams.
