Originally posted by MikeNH: I wear jeans and a short sleeve shirt of some kind year round. Thermostat is set to 62. Use a small space heater in the bedroom cause the heat doesn't reach there too good. It keeps it 64-66.
But if you needed to put on sweats to stay in your comfortable range, would you but up the temp to 70 to be back in a shirt or resign to sweats?

Right now the thermostat is at 67, which keeps the bedroom at 61. Drafty 90 year old house. I sleep in a long sleeved tee shirt and shorts. When I’m not in bed I’m in street clothes, in winter that’s jeans and a flannel shirt.
I marked heavy sweats. I usually wear khakis or cargo pants with a hoodie sweatshirt. If it's under 50-45 degrees outside, I may add an additional thermal shirt under the sweatshirt. Our thermostats are set at 68, 69, & 70 in winter, depending on which part of the house (3 separate hvac systems in house). I'm just cold all the time. I used to love the cold weather when I was young, but I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when I was 24, and 35 years later being cold most of the time has become one of the long term issues/results.

I set the stat to 66° or so, or the electric bill in the winter is a little high. Before leaving for the day I put it back down to 60° to maintain a small amount of heat and not have to kick in the heat strips or whatever they are. I make up the difference with a hooded (keeping your head warm makes the rest of your body warm) sweatshirt or sweater.

I don't wear sweats. I also have very little body fat (~11%), so I don't have a lot of natural insulation. Thus, I keep the temperature between 68°-73° (I have a "smart" thermostat, so it adjusts per schedule), and usually wear a light sweater or fleece on top of a shirt and jeans.
You can't truly call yourself "peaceful" unless you are capable of great violence. If you're not capable of great violence, you're not peaceful, you're harmless.
