How to Re-lace Your Own Glove

Updated: Jul 2, 2022

I’m always happy to assist a fellow glove enthusiast. There are hundreds of informative videos on Youtube that can help you get started. Here are some tips based on my experience.


Glove lace is best made in Alum tanning. Most of the laces for sale today are only available in chrome tanning. Chrome laces are not bad and they are usually soft and flexible. However, Alum tanned laces are stiffer but traditional for quality work. Only laces in natural tan are available in Alum for gloves today.


You will find thousands of different ways and patterns for properly repairing gloves since there are thousands of different kinds and models out there. I have found that when I get a glove to replicate the same lace configuration of any model I start by untying the end then pull out the old lace carefully noting the path it takes.


You can purchase my JOHN GOLOMB Professional Quality Re-lacing kit made in the USA for $77 plus shipping and handling. This kit includes everything you need to re-lace your own glove including:

  • Needle nose plier. These pliers are essential for pulling laces old and new.

  • Wood handle needle. The best lacing tool for almost all lacing situations .

  • The small lockin’ needle. Good for eyelets and small holes.

Key in mind that quality work is an acquired craft taking years of experience, trial and error. I'll try to assist you with any question or issue. You can write to me at
