i wear the blue golves, brand and thickness varies. but they don't last long enough.
they usually last through a saturady afternoon task, but not through a full day of wrenching.
if still un-torn when the job is done i'll save and reuse. but for heavy jobs they don't last.
in looking for a better solution, i picked up a pair of ''dishwashing'' gloves, like playtext but generic.
they have lasted through 4 struts, one wheel bearing, one axle, two batteries, and a knock sensor.
they cost about $2.50? but so far so good. i'm not sure they will last 10 times longer than the cheap ones.
before trying the playtex gloves, especially in the cold, i would wear blue latex / nitrile gloves plus the brown cotton.
for dirty , but not greasy, i will wear brown cotton jersey or white cotton with ''plastic bumps'', but eventuall they get greasy and need to be washed.
which i do when i wash my overalls and ''not too greasey'' rags. and at some point they get holes in them.
but as long as you are working on old cars, you are going to get dirty.
