It's difficult for amateurs to create completely custom gauntlets, especially if said-amateur is in college, with tuition costs and rent. Not to mention the hundreds of dollars that go into buying books for class. People like that (myself included) do not have the spare cash to buy clay and create molds, buy the material and assemble a vaccuuform table, and then buy the plastic on top of it all. Then they have to find the time to make it; not easy for a full-time college student who also has a part-time job. They'd have to do all of this just to get a quality pair of unique gauntlets when it'd be cheaper and more convenient just to purchase a normal pair (which will most likely be of better quality).
