You weren't outside all day. We went home at noon yesterday. I'm not working in a cold rain. With or without chorts. I work outside year round. I wear shorts until the high temps get below 50 or so. My son is one of those that wears them year round

to me the idiot is the guys wearing hoodies when its above freezing. 40 degrees is not cold. Work outside all the time wear shorts and tshirt year round because that is how I'm comfortable. I hate jackets and long sleeve shirts.

Growing up in Florida, shorts and a hoodie are the standard winter wear. When it starts dipping into the 40's, I throw on the long pants. Any colder than that, and I switch out the flip flops for shoes. Anytime it is wet and windy, all bets are off, and I dress like it is the arctic circle.

It used to kill me watching the high school coaches wearing a large jacket and a pair of shorts in the winter. Crocs with socks is terrible, too. I can't do the boots and shorts, either.

I hate cold weather, If I had my way, it would be 72 year around. It used not to bother me much, but the older I get the worse I hate cold weather. If I had my way, we would be spending this time of the year in Florida. I would not dream of wearing short sleeve britches this time of the year.

Other than work, haven't had on a pair of pants this fall/winter yet. Sitting in my office typing this is.....you guessed it, a pair of Adidas shorts and a hoodie.

It's not as bad as crocs and socks

agree - if I know I'm not going to be outside for a long time I'll wear shorts year-round. So if I'm just going to the store and coming right back there's no point in pants or a jacket.
I don't even own a "winter jacket" - a sweatshirt can handle anything Georgia can throw at me for up to an hour outside.

That said once I start to shiver it's "game over."
I don't have much body fat which = no insulation = hating life once I'm cold.
