For those cold weather members: how effective is wearing silk long johns under your suit? Any recommendations or 'gotchas' associated with this practice? One of my concerns is that it will be too hot once indoors.
Very true, especially in regions with cold winters and overheated interiors....the problem of what to do when going from cold to warm and vice versa is hampered by any layer that can't be easily removed, like undergarments...If there are longer periods indoors, especially coupled with some physical activity such as dancing, then it would be better to focus on outerwear that will get you there and then can come off...
It depends what is meant by "withstand"; this is true with respect to the legs' feeling cold, but the legs have 36% of the body's surface area and will be a big heat drain unless adequately insulated.The legs can withstand more cold if the torso, head, hands, and feet are well protected. Then the coat, scarf, gloves, hat, and overshoes can come off inside by the fire.
No it's not, it's an issue of the difficulty in properly controlling the temperature in large buildings.Very true, especially in regions with cold winters and overheated interiors.
Nothing can be done about the former; the latter is an environmental scandal.
You might be surprised as to how often I do exactly that!If you need the silk LJ's to get to the office on frigid days and are then uncomfortable in the office, go into the men's room and take them off.
They'd certainly roll up tighter than if they were cotton.I wonder if silk long-johns would fold up tightly enough to fit in my pocket?
