Out in the cold

Could somebody please explain the strange and mystical temperature range at which it is cold enough to merit wearing a scarf, yet sufficiently warm as to not require a coat or jumper of any description?

This has me baffled. I have always understood that additional layers of clothing were required as temperatures fall. Furthermore, I believed unspoken rules existed which govern the order in which layers were applied:

  • T-Shirt/Shirt
  • Jumper
  • Jacket
  • Scarf

But I keep seeing people wearing a t-shirt and a scarf - with no jumpers or jackets? Do these people have incredibly hairy chests that require no additional warmth? Maybe they are just simple minded fashion victims? Or was there a recent throat cancer epidemic which left hundreds of people breathing through holes in their throats - holes they hide with scarfs perhaps?

Answers on a postcard....

Im not too sure of the technical name for these people, but up here they are known as 'twats' - maybe its an acronym?
