It's more apparent on some brands than others. For example, BB Non-Iron ESF is basically like wearing a cold plastic tarp all day. Currently wearing Boss Black Label and still feels cold on my skin which I hate. Is it just me? I have to wear an undershirt but that doesn't cover my arms or neck.

Good quality cotton is thinner, and also somewhat sheer, and can get colder quicker especially since it can cling to the skin. So that might be what you are experiencing.

Yes, that is why I put a hoody over. Oops, this isn't SW&D.

In all honesty, I never found a suit to be adequate warmth for winter. I put on a car coat or overcoat, but that tends to be way overdressed in my circumstances. Other than a sweater, you might want to add more under layers.

Lots of different types of cottons out there. I was talking about a really thin, sea-island style shirt. They are sheer, thin as hell, and clingy.

But maybe it is just you @clothehorse69

Cotton shirts with a twill, herringbone or royal oxford weave are somewhat thicker than broadcloth/poplin. There is also such a thing as a long sleeved undershirt. If you are not wearing a tie, a turtleneck undershirt might keep your neck warm.

So no one else can feel that a dress shirt is colder to the touch than say a long sleeve Henley, is it only me? Maybe I have circulation issues lol
I'm actually warmer when I'm outside in the cold wearing a short sleeve cotton v-neck t-shirt than I am wearing any one of my long sleeve dress shirts for work. Is there something wrong with me or my shirts?

Trade your white collar for a blue one, sweat while you work outside, never be cold!
