In all seriousness though, I would not want to be wearing a leather jacket and tee in -30 C weather. You'd be totally fine during the spring and late fall/early winter most years though.

Looked at Toronto weather and for almost the entire year I'd be good with just my toj1 and a scarf. http://www.yr.no/place/Canada/Ontario/Toronto/statistics.html

Of course it also depends on what you're doing outside. If it's just walking 15-20-30 minutes you don't have that much time to be cold, but if you're standing around outside you do. I wouldn't do manual labor in my toj1 anyways.

I wouldn't go through Toronto with w/ a leather + a tee. Maybe in the early fall/end of summer this might work.

 

I can see leather + a knit + scarf as passable in early winter (like Nov. - mid Dec.) but beyond that, I would bring out the down jackets, especially if you walk and take the transit.

Not sure how such a credible source could have data this inaccurate. It also does not include the wind chill factor. Sorry, I've lived here 15+ years, and with the exception of this past winter its more like -15 to -20 + wind chill in the dead of winter.

I think that if you're smart about layering though you will be able to get at least 6 - 7 months of use out of a leather jacket

That sounds like Seoul weather. You can do leathers for 6-7 months, yes. You need to layer and maybe wear a beanie though. I no longer fuck around, I look stupid in beanies but i can't stand my ears getting cold in the winter. I just wear a beanie and a hood over it when I go out. Usually a +J cashmere beanie and a W+H hoodie, heat tech, leather jacket, I'm okay. If it's a bad -20 day in Seoul I've worn heat tech and a thin SNS crewneck knit under a hoodie and been more than warm.

Heat tech?

Uniqlo.

So heattech is legit stuff huh? How many pairs do you guys have if you wear it everyday? 5? 10?

Thinking about a CWU - should I go collared or collarless? Doesn't seem like there is much love for the collarless in the gallery...but the few pics of the CWU with the ribbed collar look great. Thoughts?

I have like at least 10 pairs each, top and bottoms. They make 3/4 length and full length long johns and then short sleeve and longsleeve tees. I have all of them and then usually buy another 5 pair each to refresh in the winter, so maybe I have more. I wear several sets at a time when it's really cold, like 2 or 3 bottoms and then maybe 2 tops at once.

If you guys find some FQHH hides, I would probably order a horse moto to complete the trifecta

I prefer the collar. Very much so.

Thanks for the info, I don't think I'll need that many layers since DC weather is pretty ok ;)

So excited for the Uniqlo webstore to open, my basics game is pitiful

Yeah, gotta stop myself from buying too much shit immediately rather than waiting for the inevitable sales

Remember how the mid-Atlantic pretty much stopped having a real winter at some point? Last "winter" I wore my DR (which I never zip all the way up) over a henley and a v-neck with a scarf and hat, and I was fine. There might've been a couple of days I wore a thin hoodie as a mid-layer.
