    I live in Houston. You just adjust. Bunch of fully lined wool sport coats? Nope. Bunch of unlined instructured linen/cotton sport coats. Flannel slacks? Nope. Summer weight chinos. OCBD? Yeah, in pinpoint.

    That sort of thing.

    I would fix my typos but I'm on my phone and every time I try to edit, it just deletes my post.

    I have the same issue. For a while I could get it to cooperate in Chrome but not Firefox, but now if I want to edit a post I have to switch to desktop view and log in again.

    Weather here is highly variable, regularly heating up during the day and then cooling down at night by 30-40°F or more. The main effect on my wardrobe is that I have to have lots of layers and be prepared to use them regularly.

    More Houston examples.

    Shetland sweater? Nope. Merino.
    Tall calf lace up boots? Not that useful. Unlined suede chukka? That's a 3 season boot.

    The warm weather stuff tends to be cheaper, so it's really not bad.

    Are those the 6 oz Japan featherweights? How do you like them? I ordered a pair on the current campaign that's just barely up to 98% funded right now.
    Those are the ones. They are really interesting and are really quite light/thin. They feel nothing like jeans, but look just like them. The weave is still a tight denim, so I am pretty much done with them this summer, except for late evening dinners.

    I have been growing accustomed to changing wardrobe through the seasons. Now that summer is actually underway I'm missing the ease of denim, but I'm also glad to have some variety. I've found short-sleeve buttondowns and polo shirts that I actually like wearing, so it's not all bad.

    You decide how to balance comfort and style. I used to wear a sport coat when it was too hot and humid--no more!

    EDIT: As long as you look at least as good as the masses, you have no reason to feel under-styled.

    I recently moved to Texas, and I feel that my whole wardrobe must now change because of the hot climate. I long for the cool days of more northern climates where sweaters, coats, jeans, and boots can still be worn. I'm finding it hard to be stylish in such hot weather.
    lol @ "i can't wear boots in Texas".

    sorry had to rib you a bit. I tend to be in texas pretty frequently; summertime I go with linen or linen-cotton blend down below, less-tailored (meaning not as trim and close to the body, allows better airflow) shirts and really any jacket that isn't fully lined will do wonders compared with those that are for cooling.

    Texas is also relaxed enough *most* of the time that a guy could get away with no tie and opening the top collar button and nobody's going to say or think anything of it. even so, on those days you just *have* to be in wool and a tie, the good news is most places and cars are air conditioned these days so it's not nearly as big of an issue.

    This makes me think of an article on another style site that says cowboy boots are pretty much a no-go, "unless you live in Texas."
