How cold does it get for you guys (or I guess no inside heating?).

I wear heattec undershirt but no way wearing those leggings thing unless I want to sweat non stop (indoor wise) and my commute includes 15 minutes walking -5C ish to at most -15C (rare for nyc). I find any normal pants would do even at -20C walking for a hour straight (up state NY)

I have Patagonia polypro underwear that’s 20+ years old. It’s held up well because I always hang dry.

I'm sensitive. No problem here being too warm indoors with leggings. Wearing them in my apartment right now with a t-shirt. Heattech top indoors I can't easily take off is a different story.

@Benesyed good call on hang dry. Right now I live in a tiny lofted bedroom so not easily doable, when I had a more spacious place I hung dry everything.

@gettoasty How cold does it have to get to wear the extra warm ones?

I was born in Florida so anytime it gets in the 50s I'm freezing. I'll be in like three layers if it's in the 40s.

I wear the regular warmth offerings down to 30 degrees before it starts getting uncomfortable.

I'm in a small apartment and I hang-dry literally all of my clothes on a foldable rack or wood hangers. Only stuff that goes in the dryer are towels and bed linens

Anyone have any examples of good Sukajan/Japanese Souvenir Jacket fits? Not so much of the more modern streetwear versions, but more the vintage and Toyo Tailor heritage styles.

This RRL jacket and fit from Statement Store is pretty good, but most fits I find look kinda dad-like. I'm having trouble finding people whose outfits are better for having worn one.
Not necessarily a good fit example, but I thought of this. kinda late 70s douchey look. Texas graphic tee and corduroys. pair with Wallabees.

Hang dry is a good thing but what if you leave things overnight? Aren’t there things crawling all over your garments that a quick 5-10 minute warm dryer will rid of.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
