What is wrong with glove quality control?

Maybe I'm just unlucky, or maybe I'm just ordering last year's stock and getting the returns, but I've had three pairs of gloves now with the same defect: the seam on the index finger is sewn incorrectly so that the side of the finger with the grip on it is sideways, leaving the seam running down the middle of the front of the finger.
Is this that common? These aren't cheap gloves, and are from companies generally known to produce great products: Arcteryx, Cloudveil and Smartwool. The only similarity is "Made in China." In fact, now I remember when I ordered work gloves from Kinco, I had the same problem on one of the pairs–hand made in the U.S. (I think).
Has this happened to you guys? It's a minor defect on these soft gloves–and I'm probably OCD–but still annoying.Feb 15, 2008 at 10:05 am #1420714Denis HazlewoodBPL Member

I have had this happen before. I believe it has to do with them cutting the material on the bias.Feb 15, 2008 at 10:25 am #1420718Woubeir (from Europe)BPL Member
have you contacted the manufacturers about this? Seems like a perfect example of bad workmanship which should make it eligible for warranty.
