    100% wool roll-neck sweater. Classic simple design that is crazy warm. I got it from Irish Inspirations which is a loomer in Ireland. Takes a couple weeks for shipping to the East Coast, but well worth it.

    Would love to, but I can’t. When I see wool I start itching.

    Wal-Mart chinos "opened my eyes". They are 97% cotton with 3% spandex. Way more comfortable than the jeans I had been wearing! They also look better and are inexpensive. Best of all, they are much more breathable than jeans in the Florida heat.

    Wrangler also makes some good jean-style khakis that are kind of stretchy and a lot cooler than jeans. I don't understand how people in Florida are able to wear jeans at all in the summer...

    You and me both. I'm off summers and when I go out I sometimes see professional guys in suits. Unless I was locked in a 70° room, I'd sweat through a suit in less than an hour.

    In Florida, they wear jorts according to my UGa grad BiL.

    I have a pair of Wrangler carpenter khaki pants from Walmart. Those are about the only pants I wear at home in north Texas. Most days I am wearing shorts when I work from home.

    Duckworth Powder Hoody. I love hooded sweatshirts and most of the time would forego a jacket and just wear a hoody, because of comfort. But an all cotton sweatshirt is not always the best option. The Duckworth Powder Hoody is an awesome solution. Designed exactly like my beloved hoody but a warmer wool blend fabric. The inside is even softer than a cotton hoodie.
