I wear short sleeve shirts year round. Don't really bundle up much. If I am going to be outside for an extended period of time, I will do layers. Other than that, heavy coat.

Like Cappy I wore short sleeve shirts year round until I retired. It was easier to wash my arms than to clean a shirt sleeve during the day at work. If I was only going to be outside for 10 minutes or so I didn't add any clothes. Maybe if it was below zero I shortened the time a bit. Strange thing, after having heart bypass surgery I can stand the cold even better. I like to joke that they must have cut the wires to my body thermostat when they ran that saw up my chest. Now I have a part time job where I have to be outside for an hour and a half in the early morning and again in the afternoon and I do put on layers. 30 degrees = sweater plus jacket, 20 = add fleece vest, 10 = add winter jacket, 0 add lined flannel shirt. My hands need to be out often to control traffic so I carry hand warmers in my jacket pockets if it's below 30.

Due to mildly freakish winter thus far, I haven't had to really 'bundle' up much...but when it gets wicked outside, I reach for my scarf, gloves and hat.

Oh, I wear clothes too...

High in the mid 50's today. This is getting creepy. Snow is all melted again, not that we had more than a brushing anyway.
When I am out snow blowing, I wear a knit hat, scarf or neck gator, t-shirt, sweatshirt, ski jacket, light long johns under warm-up pants, and my thinsulate boots.
Normal, going shopping, etc...jeans, t-shirt, sweatshirt, medium jacket. Nothing big. You get used to the climate you are in more than anything.

I wear short sleeves here at work while all these yingyangs around me have long sleeves and sweaters on.

30 or above - Carhartt coat, 200g thinsulate boots
20 or above - " " with a light hooded sweatshirt under it, generic gloves
10 or above - see 20 or above but switch to warmer gloves and add some wool socks
below 10 - heavier sweatshirt, stocking cap if going to be out for any length of time, 800g thinsulate boots

I bundle the kids up really well, but I have never required much. I just don't really get cold. I don't like being hot. That's where the trouble lies w/me. I'll take cold over hot any day. With cold you can get warm. With hot ya just gotta suffer.
