That would be me! Anything under 60 is cold, and I live in the midwest! (not for much longer YAY!) I am happiest on a 100+ degree day

I also eat a vegetarian diet, but I don't know if that really has anything to do with my low tolerance for cold. When I sleep, OTOH, I am always burning up! Go figure.

It's not that vegetarians can't eat and thus become fat, too I guess it is just a myth that vegetarians are less robust so to speak. There are ironmen that are even vegan

Although I have been vegetarian for 27 years now, my hands and feet are the only parts of my body that are a bit prone to feel cold, which is unpleasant enough. If I did not have a job where I have to be seated all day long, it would be no issue, though.

Yes I think their greater distribution of fat makes them better adapted at keeping warm. Also where the 'cold hands, warm heart' thing comes from, maybe there's truth to it lol.

Anybody here like wearing sleeveless clothes even if its a little chilly outside.

I know there are women up north who wear sleeveless as soon as it hits 55 F, and could care less if they feel comfortable or not. They just need to show off some skin when the sun shines.

However, from my side, its a treat to the eyes .

  3. While working out
My Answers:
  1. At home: I switch over to sleeveless T-shirts as soon as the temperature touches 76 F (25 C)
  2. Outside: I am a guy. Hence, I try to hold off as much as possible. However, anything above 95 F (36 C) compels me to wear sleeveless T-shirts or suffer from the consequences of heat rash .
  3. Working Out: Around 71 F (21 C)
I'm also a guy and I never have and never will wear sleeveless anything.

I usually wear sleeveless as an undershirt when I go outside.

However at home or while going to sleep in the summer, I almost always wear sleeveless. It feels so much more comfortable for me, and nobody will criticize me for how I look.

So Elle, you want to go to the moon and be the first person to live there. You will have 100 C (212 F) highs and -180 C (-292 F) lows. You might also be an interesting homo sapien test specimen for us rocket scientists and engineers . We will test our latest lunar suits, sensors, and survival equipments on you after achieving the intended factor of safety. Visit this link to learn more about lunar climates, and devise your survival plan.

Alright, looks like its time to shut down this thread since cooler weather has settled across most of the US and most people will no longer feel comfortable wearing sleeveless clothes till Mid May of 2014. Nice to hear replies from all of you.

I will revive this thread next year early in June.

Home ~ Around 80; however, 80 indoors feels a lot different to me than 80 outdoors.
Outside ~ Around 78.
Working out ~ In winter I still prefer long sleeves.

Let me add a twist to this question. Do you like wearing sleeveless clothes, and if so, would you sacrifice your comfort to wear what you like.
