It's usually not a good idea because later he may think he can attack your bare hand. Ultimately, it's your decision (and up to how much scratching you can take) and should be based on your cat as well.
You will see toys in pet stores that are gloves with dangly things hanging from the finger tips - so it's certainly not an unusual concept. Obviously, some people probably use them and have no problems. On the other hand, I have heard of cats becoming hand aggressive due to not always distinguishing whether it is an appropriate play time or not. Personally, I wouldn't encourage my cat to really go to town on me, glove or not - if not for my own sake, then for the sake of visitors who may interact with her. Part of balancing rough play is the cat learning the limits of what you can take - but he can't learn these limits when you're wearing the glove, so he can bite and claw harder without repercussions - maybe not something you want him getting "used" to.
