Sometimes, it's the inverse of that. Or, sometimes it's hot the entire time, sometimes not. It is annoying. So I wear lightweight layers to accommodate and, as mentioned earlier, they're all quite elastic. But they always look fairly dressed up. Perhaps it's Rhone Commuter pants with a Lululemon button down and a lightweight vest or something along those lines. I can't do jeans on an airplane - I feel horribly constricted.

    Anyway... I've hijacked this thread enough with my grumpy traveler gripes.
    Jeans constricting? I mean, maybe selvedge that hasn't been broken in. But any well worn pair of jeans? Or any pair of halfway decent stretch jeans, even if brand new? I cannot say I agree.

    I suggest trying some decent stretch jeans if you have not. They're game changing. A pair of BR stretch jeans in the proper size and fit for you borders on pajama level of comfort, while looking to the outside world like a normal, well fitting, pair of jeans.

      True and good point. In fact, I used to travel in stretch jeans for a year or so and it was alright. While I probably moved away from them primarily for look/style reasons, I really do prefer the lighter weight and stretchy fabrics from Lulu, Rhone, etc... The stretch jeans were certainly ok but I still feel more constricted in them than I do in my current travel pants.
