I am cold a lot, too, but this was a SERIOUS winter coat and it was almost 80 degrees. Even a seriously cold blooded person would be warm in that! It just looked ODD. A hoodie, sure.

Laziness could be a factor... and I guess it shaves some time off getting ready to leave for class.

I'm sure some wait to the last minute to get ready so it's easy to throw on yesterdays shirt.. yesterday's jeans.. and hey why take the time to put on socks and tie your shoes when you can slip on those sandles? Do my hair? I have a hat to take care of that!

Is it so difficult to stuff some sweater onto your bag. It literally takes me seconds. Besides, if you feel warm in a sweater, you can remove it. If you feel cold in a tank top and didnt bring a sweater, then well .........ITS TOO COLD!!!!!!(WHINES).

One possible Answer, he is doing drugs. Go near those people and you might smell the aroma of pot, coke, meth, hydro, or what ever it is that he is addicted to .

Though I would highly advise you not to do so, otherwise one of these illegal substances might end up in your handbag without your knowledge. Then its a battle between your freedom, and the mercy of the justice department.

Another one: it's awkward handling outerwear within a school.

In NYC, young people seem to do the opposite. I find it seldom gets cold enough here to wear a real winter coat, but when it goes up in the 70s and 80s, you see more young people wearing knitted hats and scarves. I tend to see it a lot on the trains, and I haven't give it much thought, but maybe they are temperature sensitive and can't tolerate the blasting A/C...really, who knows?

Some people in this city, though, obsess endlessly over the scarf/hat wearers, to the point where they blame them for unaffordable rents, threaten to "beat those hipsters," and so on. I'm of the opinion that if you're spending that much time working yourself into a lather over what some 20-year-old NYU students are doing, you need new hobbies, or maybe your boss isn't giving you enough work to do.

When I leave to go for work soon, I'll wear a tshirt, jeans and flip-flops. It's 50F/10C here right now. I'll take a hoodie jacket with me (just in case) but I don't need it for the short amounts of time I'll be outside.

Some people just don't get cold so easily. Complaining about being cold while wearing not much / no warm clothes is a bit silly, though.

College kids typically spend lots of time outside walking. Especially a commuter like me who must walk 1.62 miles from parking lot to lecture hall regardless of the weather conditions.

50 F would kill me if I did not wear a jacket, since I need to endure a 25 minute walk before entering a warm heated environment.

I am the complete opposite. In August, I was safely able to complete a 4 mile walk during the afternoon when it was 92 F and humid. I didn't drink a sip of water till the very end while everybody else was dropping dead like flies .

Granted, I like cool air because its fresher. But extreme heat is not a hurdle for me. On the other hand, an arctic blast has me dressed up in 8 layers and still shivering .

It was 30 F yesterday and this hefty dude decides to wear shorts without a jacket and flip flops showing off ALL of his unshaven hair. I don't want to be a fashion police, and am OK with people wearing what they want. But seriously guys, extreme out of place stuff like this makes you look like a douche. Nobody is going to thing you are "tough and manly" because of this. They sell season specific apparel in the northern states for a reason you know.
