Nomex Driving Gloves with External Seams
External seams (sometimes called reverse stitching) reduce pressure points along the fingers.
Whenever two pieces of material are sewn together (as in sewing the palm of a glove to the back), a little extra material has to be left beyond the seam to give the stitches something to bite into. Traditionally, the excess is tucked inside for a "clean" appearance. The trouble is that in glove construction, this forces each of your fingers to share limited space with another strip of material! The excess material puts extra pressure on your fingers, causing discomfort and even blisters.
Moving the excess material outside the fingers gives your hands a little more room inside the glove, while also making a more natural fit. The only downside is appearance, since exposing the excess material gives a less "finished" look. But if comfort is important to you, external seams have a definite advantage over traditional seams.
