Probably some medial epicondylitis. Might try a band of sorts. Didn't bother me yesterday so I'm just going to avoid things that hurt. Shocking. Lol. 

 

Surgeon asked, "Have you been golfing bro?"

 

Hahaha.

Okay, it is too freezing cold during winter and I cannot take this anymore. Does anyone else do soemething like a Cananda Goose and suits?
post #18663 of 37395

It's cold as shit outside. Wear what keeps you warm. Who cares if it's CM or not.

 

Or get a warmer top coat/overcoat. What's your current one like? 

 

I wore a gloverall duffle today and was toasty in the 8 degree weather on the way to work this morning.

Should've subscribed to the london lounge etna, 36oz of cashmere goodness.

I am not a fran. Does not go with a suit at all.

Better alternatives:

1) scarf + gloves + suit + overcoat and I'm ready for about anything. Try getting a heftier scarf and/or gloves before giving up and wearing something down-filled.
2) add a waistcoat for extra warmth. either as a part of a 3 pc suit or something knitted if you want a little more casual and/or something that can be bought to a 2 pc suit you already own
3) Have at least one real cold weather suit. Like at least 13 oz, 15 oz if you run cold.
4) Long underwear.

Get a proper overcoat. There are tons of options out there.

3) Then you're hot at your heated office all day

 

4) Then you have to get in and change out of those clothes.

Top coats are by definition not that warm. Most coats on the market today are fairly scrawny...maybe 18oz, often less than that. But you can still find overcoats that are truly heavy. For instance I would guess this British Warm at O'Tradnell's is plenty heavy:

Personally never found this to be a problem since when I'm going to/from work I'm moving around, while when I'm at work, I'm mostly seated or at least not moving around as much. I'm still warmer when inside than outside, but not so much that I'm sweating in the first case or shivering in the second.

Ah I stand corrected on the topcoat vs overcoat debacle. I'm sure he could get by with just a warmer one. It's not even really that cold in DC right now.

Always used option 1 in Boston without any issues.

It's cold.
I couldn't care any less how I look when it is butt freezing. If David's options work then that's great but I am at a point where I want to steal my wife's Canada Goose parka (women's) and wear that to work. It is freezing.

It really depends on you. People vary in their tolerance for extreme temperatures. But I would be really surprised if you couldn't find a better solution among the already-given suggestions. What's your warmest overcoat right now? If it's some Banana Republic-type topcoat, then your first job is to get yourself a legit overcoat. If that (plus the scarf and gloves thing) doesn't get you comfortable, then look into the other options.

Stop being a sissy! It didn't even get below mid 20s today in D.C.

I rock an Epaulet/Spiewak N3-B when its really, really cold out. I don't think twice about doing it over a suit or an odd jacket. But then again, I live in NYC and do a lot of walking outside.

 

That said, I find my overcoat to be very warm. 100% cashmere, knee length from Freemans Sporting Club. Surprisingly warm.
