    I don't know what the point of even having any knits is anymore...
    Every single house I go to, the heat is up in the winter, making it too hot to wear a knit.
    At work, the heat is up, it has to be in the mid 70s in here, making it too hot to wear a knit.

    It is good when I am outside and all, but besides that, what is the point. I keep my place a low temp, but I am not going to just lounge around all day in my knits.

    Same with these winter weight loro piana heavy weight wool fabric pants I am wearing... I mean they feel so nice, but it is so damn warm in here, ugh.

    Anyone else know what I am saying?

    Appearance-wise I'm like Squall but personality-wise I'm like Zidane. Also FF8 sucks.

    +J always was out of my size in stuff whenever i'd get there. Finally got there post-restock, everything size L fits like a glove. Going back after work to grab a peak lapel blazer in charcoal (fingers crossed that it's not sold out)

    I realized that it will fill the hole in my wardrobe that i thought would be filled by a knit of some sort--sepcifically "thing I can wear over both a V-neck t-shirt casually and a dress shirt while at work"

    Agree completely. Happens on public transit, too. They crank that shit up "because it's winter," but the only reason you would need/want a train or bus at 85 degrees F is if you weren't wearing heavy woolen coats in the first place. The logic is infuriating. I've taken to wearing light cotton layers and swaddling myself in outerwear/scarves/etc, so I can quickly unwrap. Some people are impervious to temperature fluctuations, though.

    That's the exact suit I got... It fits quite well and is pretty warm

    Infact I think it is actually colder in the summer in most of these places (when they crank the AC too high)

    omg heat on the bus/metro in winter kills me.

    Excessive heat and diesel fumes is not a good combination.
