Whether in New York or London or elsewhere in this hot, hot world, more than a few of the denizens of the fashion industry took to their Twitter accounts this week to complain about the heat, the sweat, and the sartorial decisions one has to make when the mercury rises. But there were a few that stood out — from basketball star LeBron James's feelings about Crème de la Mer to Leandra Medine's observations on Birkenstocks, a look at this week's best tweets, here.
Man I Love "La Mer" face and body creme! Just can't get it everywhere. Get at me folks.

That defeated feeling when something you love is on sale, but your size is nowhere to be found.

So many unironic Birkenstocks in Soho.

There is no looking cute today, which is the hottest day at the end of the hottest week. Everyone gets a pass.

Getting a haircut during a heat wave is like grocery shopping hungry. I'm going for it.

At 9.23am, I can already tell I've made an unfortunate clothing choice.
