Gloves can be pretty personal, as well as aspirational. Whichever one you choose, keep the receipt and don’t cut tags off, let him know it’s ok to return it and get the other.
I was a Rawlings Heart of the Hide guy. Bought him several early on. He became a Wilson A2000 guy once he made his own choice. He does have a “Shoeless Joe” 1B mitt. Cheaper and a soft leather. Almost no break in required.
