XXXL gloves?

The largest size gloves I've been able to find are XXL. I can usually squeeze into these, but after riding, they're almost impossible to peel off.

Does anybody make XXXL (3XL) gloves?

Thanks!

Good gloves, if you like this "older" "style. Also, they really last.
Thanks, Big Paulie, but I don't want gloves with real leather in them - they're not machine washable without serious shrinkage. Since heat and humidity are so high here, leather life is short anyway.

I want a "faux-leather" glove in MANLY size! (Is that a contradiction? )

There is a lady down in Cotati who repairs gloves and not just baseball mitts. Find a skilled tailor/seamstress that will simply add some material to the back and sides of the gloves.

Yes, I could custom-modify, but I'd prefer just to pay the money and have a quality, washable, durable XXXL glove. I can shrink my belly if I try hard enough, but I can't shrink my hands! Somebody want to make some $$$? Make a glove that FITS!
