@kfield "I miss the decorum of formal business attire."

That's easy for you to say, you didn't have to wear the corporate noose (a tie) all day.

I once heard a story that in the old days of Cahners Publishing (before our time there) that someone in top amangagement used to walk around and check that men had not loosened their ties.

"What do professional women wear to stay cool in that kind of oppressive heat?"

Hot yoga clothes?

You could work at your local UBM office if you like.

I worked for a sole proprietorship where every dollar went into or out of the owner's pocket. In winter, the office was so cold that I kept a water bottle that I'd run through the microwave to warm my hands. That was in the days when we still wore ties to work and I kept my jacket on all day, not to be formal but to be less cold.

Maybe I am old-fashioned, but I miss the decorum of formal business attire. My nieces and nephews in Catholic schools dress better than adults do these days!

I think wearing long pants in an office environment is a high risk venture, it results in worse coffee burns :-)

Anyhow I fixed that by getting a spiffy coffee machine that grinds the beans and froths the milk and keeps it at a lower temperture than instant made with hot water from a jug. Because of that I can wear jeans again :-)

I've got to say, I do prefer jeans I can regulate my temperature better and yes barefoot in summer.

Years ago, I kept a kilt in my desk at the office for warm early-spring days before the air conditioning was turned on for the season. When the office got hot, I'd change from pants to the kilt for the rest of the day.
