Some men like to say you’re a sissy for wearing gloves then use that same mouth to whine about their blisters. Gloves protect from impact, pinch points, and chemicals. They’re incredibly useful and you’re a fool if you refuse to wear them.
Most employers provide leather gloves for you, but they’re the crappy off-white leather gloves with a blue, brown, green, or orange ring around the cuff (pictured). I strongly recommend buying your own gloves for two reasons: 1. Those gloves never fit properly and that can be dangerous. 2. That crap leather dries your hands out (go for goatskin instead and thank me later).
