Ones suited to the job? Wet, dry, thick, thin depending on how hot or cold it is, how prickly the nettles or thistles are when weeding, how thorny the roses or hedge when pruning, weeding the pond plants........Waiting for an advert I think.

And you need thick waterproof gloves for the wet lumpy jobs.
Don’t have a lot of use for the pretty cotton gardening gloves, not thick enough for protection, and not waterproof, annoying when I forget and start grubbing around in the mud.
I have a couple of pairs of knitted gloves with a waterproof palm and fingers, good for messier jobs. I tend to go for cheap, and replace them, although I have been known to toss them in the machine when I wash my gardening aprons. ( not the welding gauntlets) They’ve survived a few washes, although they get a bit stiff.
They're very thin, breathable but with a tacky inner surface that makes getting a grip really easy.
There are several variants - all good
and for anything with prickles or thorns I use these
Expensive - yes, but they are excellent. Mine are now 8 years old and still nothing gets through them yet they're thin enough to be able to tie string with while wearing them
Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.
What Obelixx says above. There is no pair I aware of (tempting fate) suitable for every gardening job.
They are very fine leather palms and fingers with an elasticated wrist.
You can actually feel what you're doing moreso than with rubberized ones.
