It was 34 this morning, and I was in a pair of dress pants and a long sleeve button down, and I'm comfortable. I don't even wear a light jacket to work at this temp. Granted I'm not walking blocks to work either.

About 16 years ago we moved to the Sacramento area from Utah. I used to be like you--the cold weather didn't bother me at all. My blood has definitely thinned out in the ensuing years.

I bet. I generally prefer to be a little cold as opposed to a little hot, so I don't want to have to acclimate to anything hotter than what I've got now, especially if it involves humidity. Bleah.

Recommendations on a light\medium weight jacket, as you have been through it? I figured I should probably have one when I go into the city a couple times a month now.I don't think my northface "bubble" jacket is business appropiate

Also it is too hot for most of the time.

Maybe a pea coat or even a tweed sportcoat? How "business" are we talking?

We are a business casual company... button down shirts and dress pants, or polos and khakis, Friday we can wear jeans. We are a construction company, but a higher end construction company. Our VP where's Brook Brothers' shirts regularly.

Cool. I think you could go with either of my recommendations, then.

It's a good question. I just got up after going to bed right around 9:00 last night. I'd like to get another hour of sleep if I can, so I will probably head back upstairs in a few minutes.

Wow...the cafeteria of the US patent office is like an episode of the big bang theory. If i didnt have my Asian-ness to tone down my overall look, my ghetto fitted hat would be grounds to call security.

Dwass... the Saphir Reno and the neutral polish definitely lightened those strands up a bit. A few more hits over the next month or two and I think they'll be back to where i want them....
