My normal outfit is a t-shirt, a pair of cotton or gym shorts, and a pair of sandals. (Yeah, I'm a slob when I don't have anything or anybody to dress up for.) When temperatures drop below 60°F, I put a sweatshirt on. When temperatures drop below 30°F, I put long pants, tennis shoes and gloves on. When temperatures drop below 10°F, I put a winter coat on.

Obviously, I have much more tolerance of cold temperatures than hot temperatures.

Wow, I'm on the other side. I need winter coat for anything below 12-15c. Though only needed it thrice in my life as of now (in Beijing, Tokyo & Sydney). En route to Beijing, I had a stopover in Hong Kong and it was like 10c but since I never left the airport it doesn't count.

I wear short sleeves/t-shirts year-round casually and carry a jacket or jumper with me usually from late-April to late-October. Mostly only wear a second layer at night/early morning though it is usually cold enough to wear it all day between late-May and August. The temperature threshold for me is probably where a significant portion of time spent outside will be below 16C, though I'm fine in shorts at any temperature down to about 0C for short periods so long as my core is warm.

From experience travelling I need a winter coat and hat once the temperature is not rising above about 5C at anytime during the day and need to start wearing thick socks/airtight shoes once the temperature drops below -15C.

A second layer is almost never required between December and March here as temperatures rarely drop lower than 17C other than for a short while around dawn. Shorts and t-shirt is quite comfortable for me from 18C-35C in dry heat, above that it's getting uncomfortable outside no matter what I wear.

Lets see...
T shirt, shorts, and flip flops: 65 to 76... 80 would be uncomfortable but not the end of the world

Long pants, jacket with hood or hat, shoes: 45 was okay while walking around but I was cold sitting around watching a parade

Too Cold: I didn't like it when it was 15 because I didn't like breathing through a scarf and my nose was too cold without one.

Too Hot: 90 or above. Nothing you can wear even a bikini is comfortable unless you are in a pool or the ocean

I prefer the outdoor temperature to not be below 18C during the day time at any point. I am most comfortable at about 25C.

A dry, windy 12C is the coldest, even for a jacket.

18C is the coldest comfortable temperature for me.
