Office clothes [Aug. 6th, 2008|04:38 pm]
Previous Entry Share Next Entry
Believe it or not, but in the four plus years I've lived in Dallas, I haven't yet acclimated to the summer weather. If I'm outside for more than two minutes, I start sporting a shiny sheen.

I'm seriously thinking of getting some moisture-wicking clothes for work. However, I haven't seen many office shirt options.

I'm a bit worried about the extreme temperatures when I arrive on Friday.

I'm stuck between laughing at you or rolling my eyes.

Then I recall how much I love you and think better of it.

Just bring lots of cotton shirts and shorts. You won't need any jeans.

I've lived in Dallas for 26 years, and I haven't acclimated to the summer weather, either. :-/

I can stand next to Richard outside and he'll fine while I'm growing sweat marks.

Well, then I guess I'm just not a hot-weather person. Kitster isn't, either. In fact, we're in perpetually bad moods from late May until mid/late October. hehe

It's been a nasty summer so far though. Even here in Austin, our electric bill was almost $300. (We have a 1300 sq ft townhome and keep the thermostat at 76...)

I can't even get remotely cold water to come out of my taps. It's like insta-hot. Hope this breaks up soon...

PS: Under Armour makes some nice collared shirts that might be suitable for the office. They aren't "skin tight" like the workout stuff, but they hang nice and keep you cool/dry.

I'll check that out. I found some under-garment options, but I guess there isn't much of a market for office shirts.

No, not undergear, under armous (sports-brand apparel...)

I guess it depends upon how "business casual" your office is.

Oh I see Ya, I have to wear a shirt and tie. I don't have to wear a suit, but I'm sure they wouldn't mind.

there are some along the polo-style shirt lines.
If you want button down long sleeve, that's harder

I've lived in Dallas over 10 years, and in North East Texas my entire 28 years of life.. I'm not acclimated to it either. I'm loving the weather in NYC right now. The high today was in the lower '80's. :-D

You might find something useful at REI

Though I don't know how well they'd fit a work environment.
