Jeans tend to remain cold, wet, and heavy for a long time, like after you get soaked in the rain, and are especially uncomfortable in -30F weather. I can usually wear shorts around 32-40F . When it's colder, I wear pants, usually Khaki pants. I also prefer wearing a jacket year round. Most of my shirts don't have pockets so that's why I love jackets for their pockets capability. Some people here might sneer at the idea of wearing a jacket. Well, having your cell phone, wallet, key chain, and other stuff tucked into your pant's or shorts' pockets feels very uncomfortable, when sitting, driving, walking, etc... how do you manage to do that? Maybe that explains why I prefer perpetual cold weather year round, so I can always wear a jacket. The one thing that bothered me the most, as in recently, was putting my phone and key chain in the same pocket on my shorts/pants (wallet goes in the other pocket). So damn uncomfortable to say the least.
I prefer cargo pants over jeans. They're more comfortable and allow my legs to "breath" while still being covered. They're a good compromise over shorts and jeans. I have a few pairs of more fitted jeans, but only wear them once in a while. I feel kind of smothered wearing them, not to mention it's difficult to fit keys and wallets in them. I do find the carpenter jeans to be pretty comfortable though.

You could say the same for me,
but substitute "even 56-59 F sometimes" instead of "even below 50 F."
Literally, temperatures from 56-64 F without sun-warmth make me feel like I'm enduring a degree of suffering, just to enjoy short sleeves.
Windy and rainy, I probably couldn't handle that below 19 C/67 F without warm dry clothes.

If 49 F/9 C is not that bad for you
I can see how 90 F+/32+ C is actually a challenge.
I find 97 F/36 C equally awkward "core-wise" as 55-57 F/12.5-14 C.
But I can make minor adjustments to maintain comfort "indefinitely" in hot weather, like a supply of cold drinks.
