If it is cold outside I am going to be wearing a jacket/coat to keep warm, and everywhere I have worked and 90% of houses I go to have the thermostat set between 68 and 74 degrees year round. That's only an 6 degree swing, and even on the cold end, that is hardly deserving of more than a long sleeve shirt.
It is a shame, because I like the look of a nice sweater, but they end up living up to their name when I wear them. If this was 1920 and most houses had drafty windows and unreliable heat sources, I could see the point. In 2012... not so much.
In 20+ years, I have never worked in an office that was maintained at a comfortable temperature for 'office work'. Either freezing or melting--and freezing is better because adding layers is an option. At some point, there isn't more one can take off to cool down.
My speech is not parsing. I am speaking in ellipsis.

I don't wear sweaters anymore.
They say it is mind over matter, I lost my mind so it doesn't matter!

I concur. However, I'm still partial to the hooded, pocket-y sweatshirt variety of knitted sweaters (which is odd because I don't enjoy pullover hoodies - they always feel like they're strangling me.)
If I'm to keep buying shirts, I need MXS! Please add my size!
