For Me starting at the feet.
Wool socks.
Thinsulate removable pack linings.
Rubber bottom leather boots.

Bottom layers.
Thin stretchy long johns.
Army jogging bottoms.
Blue jeans.

Top
Long sleeve T shirt, same stuff as the stretchy long johns.
Long sleeve insulated underwear.
Another long sleave underwear layer.
A heavy pull over Carhart hoodie
Carhratt coat

Head
pull over type ski mask.
Wool thinsulate cap, with ear flaps with val crow [sp] fastened under the chin.

In the real cold stuff a XXL Carhartt insulated coverall over the top.

I got to be real careful so's not to get overheated. :nod: :cowboy:

Doesn't get that cold here. Dad wore insulated coveralls. I have been known to wear an old pair of ski pants and a heavy jacket with a stocking cap and rubber boots.

T shirt
fleece pull over
thinsulate wool socks
sweats
sometimes LU under sweat pants (hate wearing jeans when it is really cold)
insulated coveralls, Halley Hansons are the best very warm ,pricey but worth it
winter boots good for -68
neck guard
toque sometimes full face and then another one over it...
really good gortex gloves (at least 4 different pairs at a time to switch out when needed)

I have some new heat packs to put in my boots and gloves that I have yet to try..

I was just thinking the same thing about doing laundry. I'm glad we don't have to wear all those clothes or do all that laundry. I keep a light jacket with me all the time then I might layer with an old coat I use to collect dust in the truck. Cotton socks and the same boots I wear in summer. But if I lived up north, I'd hope and pray I didn't fall down.

I wear jeans and a t-shirt year-round, in the winter a button down shirt over top.

Below 30 or so and I wear a pair of insulated bibs and a carhartt coat with a baseball cap. Used to like coveralls but kept getting hot from in/out of the truck/tractor. Also depends on what you're doing, was in the barn pulling a calf the other night and got hot, stripped down to the t-shirt. Walked 100 yards or so back to the house for something (was 30F) and didn't get cold at all, normally I'd freeze my ass off.

Try and save the grass skirt for special occasions.
