Needing a new pair of leather work gloves (unlined) mainly for use in the shop, when working with iron!!! Want something comfortable and not real stiff!! Thereís cowhide, deerhide, pig skin, goat skin and even seen some buffalo hide gloves!!! Whatís ur opinion on the best wearing (toughness) leather, last time think I got deer skin! They were soft and comfortable but they didnít last very long at all!!! I read it also makes a difference what part of the animal the skin was taken from too!!!

Back when I was farming and bailing hay, I liked goat skin gloves.

Leather is ok but consider the line of Mechanix wear. They have a glove for most uses. Iíve had several different types and have always been happy with the product.

As a good all around glove I like Kinco pigskin, the pair I keep in the shop and around the farmstead will become really soft and comfortable after a few months use and they are also great to use in the woods because they don't get stiff after being wet, and they seem to outlast any cow leather gloves I've tried for working up firewood. In recent years when the shop pair starts getting worn I switch to a pair I've started using for firewood that is already broken in. I generally buy a six pack every two years.
After reading the comments here I think I'll try a two pack of their bison leather.

I wear the SummitRacing brand leather fabricators gloves, $14 and they're better lasting than TiG gloves, more feel/tighter fit than the heavier "rancher" gloves I use piling wood.

I'll throw in another endorsement for the Tillman welding gloves. Their MIG gloves are little heavier than the TIG gloves, and will last longer, but are a bit stiffer. Either should give a reasonable amount of service though.

One of the best blacksmiths I ever knew told me the best metal working gloves were not leather at all. He said leather gets hot and stays hot, gets stiff, gets hard, and cost too much. He used heavyweight yellow or green farmer gloves. I have to agree with him. Thatís all Iíve used in nearly 40 years. I have several pair on my welder.

The best I can find off the shelf is the dark brown color leather drivers from Ace Hardware. The leather will last with reasonable non abusive kind of use and best of all, unlike almost every other glove off the shelf is that the seam stitching does not fail. I have learned that so many of those will fail at the seam when doing impact work like pounding a fence post in by hand, while the leather will last, they just fall apart, but could be easily re-stitched if you had the machine to do it. I can recall asking this question here in the past and many responses were for brands you can't get off the shelf, always wanted to check some of those out.

AS listed below, Tillman 1414L is what I wear at work,they are a little stiff for the first day then they are fine. 1414 is the model then S,M,L & EX . When I get too many holes in mine at work, I just take them home for the shop.

Have never seen bison gloves in person, but I used to have a pigskin backpack that wore like iron on steroids! Used it for years. Looked so great when the stitching was failing that I bought kevlar thread. Looked like hell years later, but it was finally time to retire it.

There are some Kinco brand bison gloves on Amazon:

https://www.amazon.com/Buffalo-Leather-Working-Gloves-2-PACK/dp/B07BDNR4QT/ref=sr_1_5?keywords=bison+work+gloves&qid=1578887526&sr=8-5

I looked on Mills Fleet Farm website but did not see any.

Tillman has some nice-looking mig welding gloves on Amazon:

https://www.amazon.com/John-Tillman-50-Cowhide-Seamless/dp/B003TMVPUU/ref=sr_1_6?keywords=mig+welding+gloves&qid=1578887339&sr=8-6

as well as some without cuffs:

Someone posted some time back about some gloves they found on eBay. Not sure if it was these, but near as I can remember, these look pretty much identical. Got reinforcement leather in all the right places:

Bison by far. Our Farm Fleet (Mills) Has them. Look dressy, but are solid performers. Jim
