-- Oh, I agree with you. I was just adding hyperbole with the flannel comment. I doubt I would ever wear linen in Chicago in January. But in the transitional months, yes I will. But as I stated awhile back, if you're in Miami in January, linen probably is a viable and preferred option. Prime winter months in industrial, tranditionally cold cities like Chicago / New York may be odd in such summer attire, but again, if it was 90 plus. Weather still would be my first consideration. I think the labor day/memorial day etc. is silly.
