    Not really.  Our home thermostat is at 75, and that is a little on the cool side.  I certainly wouldn't imagine that an extra 5 degrees wouldn't still be comfortable.  It's also worth pointing out that 80 is essentially off for the last 2 weeks in DC.  I live ~100 miles north of DC, but roughly the same weather and it has been a rather mild summer except for a couple of days the beginning of July.

    Perhaps you shouldn't be making people where suits in 80 degrees, but there is no harm in relaxing the dress code.

      Of course women can adapt to different temperatures, but men should be able to ditch the suits and ties and wear short-sleeved breathable shirts and even tailored shorts to the office in the summer.
