Profar’s glove is a nice Ranger-inspired Wilson A2K custom with a red web and blue laces.  Profar is the first guy we’ve featured that opts for the A2K leather over the A2000 leather.  The difference between the two is where the hide is taken from the cow.  The A2K leather is taken from the backside, which is thinner and smoother and supposedly easier to break in.  The A2000s are taken from the sides and the belly, which result in a thicker, stiffer, and supposedly more durable leather.  The reason for the A2K being more expensive is the fact that the backside type of leather is a rarer cut.

There is no A2K option for the Wilson Glove Builder but you can make Profar’s exact glove model with A2000 leather with the specs below:

LEATHER COLORS

  • Palm – Black
  • Web – Red
  • Back Fingers – Black
  • Thumb Strip – Black
  • Wrist – Black
  • Super Skin – No

TRIM COLORS

  • Lacing – Royal
  • Welting – Black
  • Binding – Black

STITCHING COLORS

  • Wilson Back – Black
  • Wilson Front – Wilson Yellow
  • A2000 – Wilson Yellow
  • Web Stitching – Red
  • Shell Stitching – Black

Profar’s sunglasses are the Oakley Fast Jacket that you see above, in a frame color that is not offered on Oakley’s Custom Builder.  He has a royal blue frame that you can’t add in the custom builder, with chrome icons and white earsocks.  With the custom tool, you can get navy, sky, or light blue (but no royal???) and you cannot change the clip that connects the lense with the frame.
