The idea is that thermostats can be set fuel for air-conditioning. Sawhill did not suggest spe- cifically how women should dress at the office. He said only that they should wear "neat and comfortable clothes" to keep cool. And he recognized that among men "there will still be occa- sions when a coat and tie will obviously be appropriate."
