Who here wears driving gloves?

Old tradition that makes a guy look like a douche today, or still the sign of a sporting gentleman?

Under certain conditions, I wear gloves (but not necessarily what you would call "driving gloves"). These conditions are:

On long drives, in hot weather, in cars w/o AC they give a much better, more comfortable grip on the wheel.

In cold weather, to keep my hands from drying out and cracking in certain spots to the point that they actually bleed (getting old really sucks, but it's still better than Plan B).

And I don't give a flyin' f_ _ k what anybody thinks about it. I'm doing it for my own comfort, not for appearances.

I bought in Italy--I wear 'em when I'm autocrossing or any kind of quick driving--especially when it's hot, because that lovely woodrim steering wheel on my '02 is slippery as hell. The gloves help me keep a firm grip on that wheel.

And when the car's at a show I drape 'em casually across the dash--to cover the crack in the upper dash!
