We carry Indian Tan from both Auburn Leather Co. (AL), and Tennessee Tanning Co. (TT). Main difference is that the TT lace is noticeably stiffer. The colors are very similar. * NOTE: the TT tan is now called Indian Tan Havana TT - same stuff slightly different name. *
Sold in Single 3/16x72 inch or 1/4x72 inch laces.
The 3/16 inch wide by 72 inch long is the standard width for most baseball and softball gloves. This is the lace that is used most often on the heel, the palm, the fingers and on the top of the web. A lot of gloves use wider 1/4 inch lace for the web itself. You should check before buying your lace.
This leather lace is available in Tan, Black or Chocolate. *Sold by singles. This is the highest quality and most consistent glove lace available today.
In most cases, you can use 3/16 inch lace in place of the 1/4 in size. You may not be able to go vice versa because the holes may be too small.
Catchers mitts will usually use 1/4" in the web and sometimes across the fingers.
There are generally 5 sections to relacing a glove. Palm, Heel, Thumb, Pinky, Fingers, Web. This varies on certain gloves.
One single 72 inch lace is usually enough to do two sections on fielders gloves. To be safe you should order at least three pieces to do a complete glove relacing. More for catchers mitts and first base mitts.

FIx that Glove yourself. It really isn't all that tough - once you know how.
I'm sure you folks already know this but just for legalise sake. This is a natural product - from the hides of cattle. Therefore each hide will absorb and show the color slightly different. Sometimes 3/16 and 1/4 inch laces in the same color will not be excatly the same shade. Now, with that said - the tanneries almost always get it right. So grab some colored lace and walk out on the field with your new custom look glove. Play Ball!
