What I wear.(winter gear, that is)

Snow day!
The socks on the right are "sock liners" go on first, you can use thin dress socks in a pinch, the ones on the left are mostly wool. Don't bother with anything less than 50 % wool. These are "boot length" also important when wearing big snow boots.

These are the most versatile, mid-weight thermals, I have lightweight and heavy weight as well.

Flannel-lined pants.

I like this synthetic t-shirt,but cotton next to the skin is nice too, first layer is best not too loose.

Thermal tops, sometimes can be doubled up.

Flannel shirt.

Wool sweater. This is like real estate.

Shell/felt lined snow boots,  probably time for an upgrade.

You can't buy a coat like this, it takes years of hard knocks.

I have two heads, so they both need hats.  The wool/fleece lined ski hat is the warmer choice, but I'll wear the cap with ear flaps if it's not as cold.

Lined leather work gloves.  I'm looking for finger-less under-gloves. I wear these but have to take them off often.
