Anything below 0.F is starting to get cold on the other end of the scale anything approaching 80F i'd consider uncomfortably hot.

I would generally say below -10°C is starting to feel cold for me, but this also depends on other factors like wind chill, cloud cover and so on.

In winter i usually start to put my gloves on when the temperature is below -5°C, in windy and clammy conditions then already temperature around freezing might require this. When it drops to -10°C and lower i also put a long john layer under my regular clothes and put on my ski jacket. I still enjoy such cold days, and often go for a walk or even do cycling (provided there are no black ice and the roads and bike paths).
On the other hand it has not dropped below -19°C here ever since, so i don't know if i could handle "real cold temperatures" so -20s or -30s that well.

If the mercury climbs above 10°C in winter (also a rare case), i do sometimes even walk in short sleeves.

Summer is a season, where i leave my jacket mostly at home, even in the mornings when i know that the forecast announces a maximum well above 20°C. I only wear a jacket then when the afternoon temperatures are either below 16°C or if it rains heavily (weatherwise speaking).

In general, anything below 45F / 7C is cold to me.

In the summer, the threshold is a bit higher, at about 65F / 18C is when I start shivering.

For every 20 F colder, I throw on an extra layer.

Anything below 55 degrees. I live in L.A and was raised between Panama City, Panama and Honolulu, HI, where it NEVER gets cold.

Cold to me is anything below 60. 50's are bearable but anything below that is just plain miserable.
