    Emotionally. Putting a hat on me would feel very much how I suspect animals to feel when people put people clothes on them.

    Yeah... I rarely wear a hat, even when it's this cold, just because I haven't found something that doesn't look ridiculous with a coat/tie.

    Regretted it this morning though, that's for sure.

    When it gets this cold, I usually just say fuck it and wear a beanie. Did not this morning for some reason.

    What's really pissing me off is I left my umbrella at a restaurant last night, and am going to have to venture out in this cold at lunch to go retrieve it. FML.

    You're a scarlet letter.

    You are insane if you don't wear earmuffs this time of year. I do the 180s brand wrap-around ones so my hair doesn't get messed up. Will not wear a hat unless I'm going out for a walk or am running errands on the weekend and don't care as much about my coiff.

    I grew up in Canada and do not ever remember wearing ear muffs. Ear muffs are for chics.

    pB, you continue to delight. Thank you.

    I'm bald, so hats are not optional for me.

    Y'all need a little brush up on physiology I see. A huge amount of heat leaves your body through your head if you wore even a tiny beret it would make you feel quite a bit warmer. Covering your ears and not your head is pointless.

    Thanks for the lesson. I don't know how I have made it this far without that.

    Sugar, do your hoop earnings get really cold in the winter and make your earlobes freeze?

    False - generalization. Covering only your ears might be nearly pointless if your objective is to maintain body heat. But it is not pointless if you're just fine on body heat, and you don't want to freeze your ears (which get cold quick due to an extreme surface area:mass ratio), and deal with the associated pain.

    It's a prefectly legit stepping stone between no head cover and full head cover.

    My apartment has leaky windows. It's fine until the temps drop below 25. Last night I went to bed cozy, woke up to a frigid apartment :fu:

    The commute actually wasn't bad. I wore a wool Polo beanie along with a lambswool cardigan, flanneled wool suit, and below knee length wool DB coat to keep the wind and chill out. The beanie looks stupid with the coat, briefcase, Santoni Chelseas, etc, but this morning I really didn't give a fuck how I looked. I felt comfortable, despite having to fix my hair when I got into the office.
