Default Glove fitment (fingers)

Hey guys,

I've been trying on gloves to pick out and I'm running into a problem. I have a thick hand and short fingers. Large gloves are usually nice and comfy. Mediums probably fit more like motorcycle gauntlets are supposed to, a little work to get my hand in there. I even managed to really work my hand into a small. But on all the gloves, small included, the fingers were too long. I have a decent amount of material I can pinch at the end of each. Put it this way, if I had to do something involving fine touch with my fingertips, it would be incredibly annoying.

I've been searching and searching for gloves that give a short finger option, and Held Nero's are the only I've found, but they're discontinued and sold out everywhere.

Considering the actual fingertips aren't very much involved in riding, is it ok to have a glove that's got some space in the fingertips? Anyone else have this problem? Any makeshift, DIY solutions?

Thanks,
--Art Vandelay

I've got a little space on my finger tips on some of my gloves as well.

i dont like if theres space in my fingertips, that extra material is annoying as hell to me. certain brands actually fit like a glove where others have long fingers.

you can stuff some tissues or something where theres extra space to keep the material from bunching.
