Ask armoredsaint ... I think he ran some sort of experiment on how cold he could keep his house. I think he beat 59 too.

Edit: not saying that armoredsaint is "gravitationally challenged", only noting that I think he could beat 59 degrees. I keep mine at 65 in the winter.

Between that and finding pants that actually fit...yeah, society ain't geared toward the skinny man anymore.

I feel your pain. However, living in AZ, I get my revenge in the summer time, when I'm not overheating and they're dying of heat stroke.

I'm 6'2" 160lbs. I generally wear 32x32 in jeans (for some reason my legs seem abnormally short), with a good belt.

Skinny guy here. I like the temp about 60-65 Degrees F (15-18 C). 70 in the winter is just too warm.

I was 300+ pounds last winter and typically kept the thermostat between 65-68º … Over the last year I've lost 90+ Lbs and am actually finding I can tolerate cooler temps much better ... I've got the thermo between 62-65º now, and am actually sitting at my desk in my home office right now in shorts, a tank top and bare feet.

I attribute it to the efforts I've undergone in the last year to improve my health and increase my metabolism ... my internal furnace is firing much hotter and efficiently and keeping my entire system running much much warmer.

Fatbody here. 69 degrees. I'd lower it but the wife and kids wouldn't appreciate it.

If it was not for the wife unit the heat would never even come on. I burn up all winter. Last night she was in sweaters and blanket - me, shorts and wife beater

wa wa - I am too tall. Try being built like an oak stump, clothes never fit - thin waist, thick short legs - short trunk and big upper body 5'9" 200 lbs

You're only 4" thinner and a few inches shorter than me. As you only way 170 lbs, I can tell you're probably not a very physical individual unless you usually only do cardio.
Link Posted: 11/2/2009 7:05:09 AM EST
If you have insurance and if it does cover a visit to an endocrinologist you should get some diet advice. They can run an A1C to check your history to see if you are diabetic. If not, great news but they can help you gain some weight. Although, personally I am not as thin as you, I do have to order clothes since my waist size and inseam are 36/38x36 and a wear a 52 tall jacket. When you find a brand that fits order it online. I order three pairs of jeans every couple of years just so I don't waste gas and time looking for them. Carhart seems to be a better fit for me.

You're in luck as most premium denim is geared towards people like you. As an example, the Nudie Average Joe is available in waist sizes starting at 28 waist and 34/36 inch inseams. Nudies are made in Italy but if you prefer US made jeans (as I do) check out Rag & Bone, which are sewn in NC.

I think a lot of it is genetic as my father was built just like me. I spend 8 hrs a day doing what are basicly low impact aerobics at work (auto mechanic) and I usually only have one real meal a day. According to the wife units Wii fitness program I have a BMI of 21.98 and a fitness age of 34 (I'm 46). All my hunting buddies say I am a billy goat and I can out walk all of them, even guys half my age.

Vodka, man. The Russians figured it out.

Drink a liter or two and you'll be warm as a bug in a rug. Or a mashonka in a babushka. You know, whatever.

cute, but alcohol doesn't warm the body, it warms the surface at the expense of the core.

Thin guy here. I light a fire when the temperature outside nears freezing, but other than that I don't use the heater. The secret is wool pajamas from Macy's.

That's cool if you don't think those jeans are for you, just giving you some options. I'm a hard size to fit as well so I know your pain.

Plus it's nigh impossible to find quality jeans that are made in the US any more. Besides being anti-gun, Levi's makes most of their jeans in Mexico or Guatemala. Wranglers are also mostly made overseas. Sigh.

thermostat set to 82 or just a degree or two below outside temperature to dry the inside air (whichever is lower) during the summer
68 during the winter. i'll put on more clothes, because i already bought the clothes, buti don't want to buy more electricity.

I have a hard enough time keeping warm in the sub zero winter time playground.

My house is at 69 degrees, and will stay there for the remainder of the winter.

I wore 30s when I was a junior in high school. Even in my best shape in the army I wore 32s.

I feel your pain. 6'1 and 170lbs (Lost about 10lbs since I got the flu ) with long legs. Try finding a 31" waist and 36" inseam. Yeah, it's not going to happen unless you have Wranglers made for you. Then throw a 1911 in an OWB holster, a spare magazine, keys, two knives, phone, wallet, MP3 player and headphones––my hips are happy when I finally unload my pockets at home. I need a better belt.

People have REALLY different internal thermostats.

I'm 6'1", 260# with a 38" waist and about 15% bodyfat. Downhill ski in T-shirts. Someone above posted how he "could sleep in the snow"; I've done that many times with a waterproof groundcloth, cotton shirt and a pillow. It feels amazing!

The ridiculous part is that I live in Sacramento for much of the year, usually including summer. I can hardly even eat on a triple digit day. I die a little bit during the summer.
