The shade. 85f in the sun would feel hotter than 100f anyway.

What the hell, why did you have to completely ruin the game by forcing you to wear a suit? 60'F and sun is enough to make you sweat your ass off in a suit, let alone 85'F, and you don't want to sweat in an expensive suit that's expensive to wash.

I think if I had to sit in the sun for 3 hours at 85 F in a suit, I would burn the suit afterward.

100 F in the shade. Wearing a tank top and shorts...with a gallon jug of water Plus, there might be a breeze so it may not feel that bad.

Even if it is "only" 85 F, being in the sun is going to make it feel much hotter and plus 3 hours under that evil eye in the sky wearing a full suit is liable to make someone suffer a heat-related illness such as heat exhaustion or even heat stroke. Personally, I burn easily so no sun for me.

I voted but I don’t know what 100F feels like because I’ve never experienced it. 80 is bad enough with shorts and t shirt in the sun. 90 is too hot even in the shade for me
