Don’t confound a tight glove with a well fitting glove. – From 17 Don’t s for Men, 1890’s. See the full list on Kitschy Kitschy Coo.
There is a small margin between a glove that fits well and one that is too tight. If you squeeze your hand in a fist you should quickly know whether or not your glove is too tight. In writing, you need to read your words out loud to hear if they fit well or are too tight or too loose.
