This may have something to do with giving an equal amount of gloves to charity.

I don't know about that. I think the following from their website is misleading.

We'll match every purchase with a free golf glove through our partnership with the First Tee Program.

What is "every purchase"? Do they give a single glove to First Tee when someone purchases a year long subscription of 12 or 24 gloves?

They do not say "For every glove sold we give a glove to First Tee".

I don't think they have rolled out their subscription plan yet. From the kickstarter they are offering to give 3 if you buy 3.

The subscription may be a whole different plan and a different cost structure.

I think their charity hook is a way to attempt to get customers. I wish them well, but don't like the approach. 

I'd be starting with great gloves at a great price and run a First Tee promotion when they're up and running. Keep it simple.

OK, reporting back on a couple of things.  First, I have a couple of new Titleist gloves, and those seams around the thumb are similar to what @Zippo showed, what I might call a "butt seam", after the welding term.  The Red Rooster uses a "overlap" seam, as does a Snell glove I have.  I honestly don't know if one is better than the other.

At this stage I have 5 rounds with the RR glove, and its still in good shape.  Nothing better than normal, but definitely not substandard either.

The kickstarter campaign is in progress, and the prices for gloves at this stage don't seem unusually low, around $20 per, less if you get more.  That includes a contribution of the same number of gloves to a couple of First Tee programs.  They indicated in an email that there would be a subscription option, which responds a little to some concerns voiced in this thread, but no details are available yet.  

That's it.  This is a pretty good quality glove, at a reasonable (but not low) price.  

Thanks for the update! I'm sure you know that my comments about the seam were not in any way meant to be derogatory. Just something I noted. I appreciate you taking the time to post and follow up!

No offense taken, you noticed something that I hadn't.  I have no stake in this, I just got a free glove to try, and I thought I'd share my impressions here.  I can't say this is something I'll follow through with, but I'll probably leave my name on their mailing list to see what happens once they go into "normal" business.  If seems that they've exceeded their Kickstarter goal, so I believe they'll be moving forward, but time will tell.

    • This course has 2 of those dog legs that suit me. I managed to get close to the green on both but this one was much better because you have trees that start about 30m from the tee box and you need to go over them. Smashed driver and didn’t hear a noise. There is no way to cut it off any further to the right only if you can hit it longer. Pitched to pin high and two putted for par though. 
    • 7 hours ago If Rahm holds on for the win, will he be the first Basque major winner?   No, Olazabal is from Hondarribia right across the water from France ,Rahm from nearby Bilbao .Seve was also from the north coast not sure if it’s classed as Basque .
    • Finally birdied #9. It was one of those "boring" birdies on a par 5; Pulled drive to right rough, good lay up to fairway 50 yards short of the green, 60° to 12' and a good putt to make it a nice 4.  Yes! 
    • I have struggled with my golf swing for a long time with over the top problem resulting in big slices, pulls, and inconsistent contacts. My handicap ranges from 18 to 21 and I have broken 90 less than 5 times in my life with a total of 10 years of golf. I have tried many changes and took instructions but the changes never stick. Like many amateurs sometimes I thought I have discovered the magic fix only to be disappointed later. I hope this is not the case. In the last month, I have experimented with Stack and Tilt and I found out that it allows me to have better contact with the ball and minimize the over the top problem. In my last two rounds, I have shot 14, and 10 over. In the last few months I also have a golf simulator which allowed me to practice almost daily. I don't know if the two low scores are the results of stack and tilt or the simulator or both. I find that it is easier to pivot on the left foot for both the full swing, pitching and chipping. With the full swing, stack and tilt method somehow allows my right elbow to be closer to my body and I turn and swing the club from the inside much better. I was hitting the driver 240 to 270 in the last two rounds. Before I used to hit the driver 220 to 240. I will play again in 2 weeks, it will be interesting if I can break 90 again. Has anyone else had similar success with stack and tilt?
