got some new Hatch leather gloves to replace my old ones. i noticed with both my first pair and these that for their "break in" period, the leather leaves a nice blue-grey stain on my hands when i take em off. is there any way to avoid this? it's not a huge deal, but id prefer not to look like my hands have rigor mortis.

sounds like it is the dye in the leather, I would put them on and soak your hands in water with them on to wash it out. If you keep them on til they dry it will shape them to your hands more so they won't be as uncomfortable. This means that your hands are going to look a mess, but at least it is a one time deal.

+1 Though, they will likely be a little stiff after first drying. Then they'll loosen up again.

I had the same problem with a pair of Lee Parks gloves, and no matter ow many times I soaked them, etc., I could not get them to stop bleeding dye onto my hands.
