My one trip to Taiwan was in December (late '80s) and the temperature was certainly not opressive. Long pants, long sleeves, light jackets were about right, even on the Tropic of Cancer. The line goes through the island.
I work for a company that designs, builds, and sells high-speed high-end data acquisition products. We are in a remote satellite office and customers never visit us so we dress casual; shorts, T-shirts, sandals in the summer. I'm an old old engineer, I cut my teeth in a white shirt and tie, and to tell the truth, I much prefer T-shirts and shorts.
@William_Albano "I work at an industrial communication systems startup (hardware + software) in our APAC office in Taipei, Taiwan. Its hot here during the summer: in low to mid 90s °F (mid 30s °C) daily"
Oh my, thanks for the heads up! I am traveling to Taiwan later on this year. I don't do shorts, though. What do professional women (and depsite what Max Maxfield says that's what I am) wear to stay cool in that kind of oppressive heat?
@Max, clearly, you don't understand the significance of the photo? Did your countryman Eric Clapton wear shorts in his picture where he tried to emulate Robert Johnson? Did Johnson wear shorts in his famous picture?
The sad thing is that your profile picture shows you in a suit. Is it that you are ashamed of your knees?
Besides, I took the picture while a Reed employee. You know how those British companies can be.
