11. I have learned something new from this thread.

I never wore a toboggan although I rode on one many times. Around here we call them toques.

Two things I swear by that I haven't seen mentioned, I always wear a hooded thermal sweatshirt and/or hooded jacket because the hood(s) helps keep my neck warm. I also like to wear one layer, preferably the outside layer, that is a windbreaker and water repellent.

Normal for me in cold weather: thermal shirt, T shirt, flannel shirt, hooded sweatshirt, and light windbreaker, thermal underwear and flannel lined pants. If very cold, windy, or long period of exposure, I will use a scarf.

Never dress too warm, better to be a little cool than too hot. Sweat is your enemy when the temperature is below zero.

I don't like sweatshirts as undergarments because they don't tuck into your pants well and always, at least on me, ride up and stay up exposing my waist. The hooded sweatshirts I do wear are the zip up jacket type. At least the two outside layers should have zippers in case you get too warm, you can open them without removing them. I like long shirts that tuck in well and stay tucked in even when you bend over. I used to use a union suit, or one piece thermal top and bottom, but don't have one anymore.
