Why does everyone in Florida wear shorts and a tee shirt even when the weather is down right COLD?

Jump to last reply

I just returned from a trip to the Orlando area. For a few days last week the weather was just plain cold and miserable. Grey clouds, rain, and high winds. The afternoon temps were in the 50s. Though it appeared that nearly everyone I saw was wearing just a tee shirt and shorts. Everyone looked like they were freezing to death as the cold wind blew through DisneyWorld but no one (except for us) would admit it was cold and wear a jacket.

Is it a badge of honor in Florida to underdress and insist on wearing shorts even if it is cold and windy? What is the story?
