97 Degrees in NYC tomorrow, what are you wearing to work ?

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
How do you look presentable despite the unbearable temperature ?


For me its going to be linen trousers, linen shirt and a Panama hat. There are a handful of days a year that I don't wear a jacket and this is going to be one of them.
I keep a Navy jacket and a few ties in my office in case I need to meet with anyone other than my direct staff.



I am going to leave the house earlier so I don't have to be in the hell like subway at crush hour. Not looking forward to this

yeah, i hear ya-- I'm in the tucson AZ area, so this is a daily battle for me this time of year (May-October, more or less). These days, I'm wearing a shirt, tie, trousers (sometimes nice khakis in place of dress trousers), or an open-neck dress shirt. I never go short sleeves unless it's a polo shirt for casual fridays. before it got simply TOO hot, I was wearing a medium blue cotton sportcoat, which worked pretty well too.

I wore a linen sport coat last night going out, which was fine until I got to the engagement party in the loft apt w/o AC.

Redtree00,

Sounds like a good plan. I especially like that you are going with a hat!

We are only hitting 75 here in WI, but being a Texan I can relate to the heat.

Playing hooky from most work tomorrow, but I shall be travelling to NYC to discuss prospective flannel suits with a tailor. I hope his suite has excellent air conditioning.

Unlike you suckers, I have AC in my home, car, office, and even the tunnel between office garage and office.

I'll cool all the way!

No meetings tomorrow, thank goodness, so probably cream linen pants and a polo shirt, no undershirt. One of the benefits of a casual office is the ability to dress for the weather. Otherwise it'd be linen pants, linen shirt, half lined fresco jacket. 97 is nuts.

Why don't you carry your jacket and tie and put it on at work...or take a cab?

Wow - it's only 90 in Phoenix right now - quite nice.

I've got to think that 97 in NYC is much worse than it would be here. The relative humidity plus lack of AC has to be pretty bad.

Take care and stay cool.

It's Breanish, with an "N".

I usually understand your little crusades, but this one I don't get. I thought you liked light weight tweed.

97 degrees, but with the humidity, it feels much worse.

Leave him alone. Bream is real...



...though rarely made into tweed.

I like scaley tweeds. More texture

That would look good with some of Tony G's Irish salmon hide oxfords.
