What's the maximum temperature that you can stand wearing long sleeve shirts & pants?

For me, I wouldn't sweat in long sleeve dress & stockings at 75F, especially when it's cloudy and windy(like June gloom).

83 F or <, and even that’s pushing it. I would say I would still marginally uncomfortable in 80 degree heat without shortsleeved shirts or shorts, but I could still wear such clothes in that weather.

90 F if I'm in a natural environment with lots of bugs and my clothes are light and loose-fitting.

75 F if indoors.

I don't own any long pants for everyday wear, as they are unnecessary here with our warm winters, so I wouldn't know.



Probably around 55f would be my limit; lower if it's sunny and calm, and higher if it's rainy or breezy. I get hot very easily just walking around.

I can't vote in the poll, because my option isn't there. When I worked construction in Phoenix, I had to wear long sleeves (though light weight breathable flannel) and pants when it would get as hot as 115°F. Wasn't ideal, but I could take it

Usually I quit wearing long sleeves at around 70F, and long pants at around 75F, but I've worn both on occasion until 80F probably.

105 F is about my limit. I only do this for certain tasks around the yard, such as spraying pesticides or using a chainsaw. Every time I've considered running a chainsaw in sandals and shorts, I've resisted the temptation and took the time to put on boots and blue jeans. Not sure the jeans make a lot of difference, but it can't hurt.
