The issue of elasticity arises when the velcro is lost. In case of replacing the velcro, for a pair of gloves, they charge 100 rupees.
The Stitching Procedure
In a few scenarios, when the gloves are torn, they remove the uppermost portion of the gloves. After firing, the skeleton of a glove can be seen. Then, they will start stitching the gloves from the beginning.
After removing the topmost part, the palm part is usually stitched separately. It will then be attached to the gloves.
They start stitching from the little finger, and then they finish it at the thumb finger position.
The other services the DK Sports shop provides is given the following. If an individual is a left-hand batsman and needs left-hand gloves instead of right-hand, the shop can redo that.
Also, if an individual is a right-hand batsman and needs right-hand gloves instead of left-hand, the shop can redo that.
These are the other services the DK Sports shop offers. The quality of leather the shop uses is price-worthy.
The finish after their stitching seems so perfect that there are no gaps between the glove’s fingers. As a result, the gloves feel more comfortable and adaptable as well.
Few shops might add varnish to the gloves after stitching as per the shape. However, the other shops do this to get gapless gloves and to hide the flaws of stitching.
But, the DK Sports shop offers a complete finish to provide a perfect grip to the cricket players.
The shop even accepts courier services. After repairing the gloves, they send them back to their customers. The courier charge is 50 rupees per glove.
