Which is more tolerable to you?

A) 75 F / 24 C in a suit and long pants with direct sunlight (high noon) or

B) 100 F / 38 C in shorts and non-direct sunlight?

I pick B. A restricts my movement quite a lot.

I think A feels more uncomfortable, but I have no idea for 100F temps, never experienced here

At least I can protect my skin and much tolerable than triple digits anyways so I'd go for A.

A definitely, 38 is pretty scorching regardless of what you're wearing. I remember a lot of days back in school when the winter uniform was basically like a full suit, and having to wear it in 24+ days during exceptionally warm autumn and spring days. It wasn't very comfortable at all but far more bearable than 38.

75 in a suit. 75 is only 24 degrees, and I've done that in a suit without the slightest discomfort. 100 is just, well, silly hot.

75 in a suit. I have done it before and it wasn't too bad.

Both are fine and can be enjoyable unless B is a very humid 100 F (where shade won't make a difference).
