What to wear: How FOX 5's Tom Fitzgerald beats the cold

FOX 5's Tom Fitzgerald will do just about anything to tell a good story, even if that means braving the freezing cold, live shot after live shot, newscast after newscast.

If you're following him on Twitter, maybe you've noticed his "layered look."

Earlier this week, Fitz shared a list of everything he wears to stay warm in the field during these freezing temperatures. 

  • Snow boots
  • 2 pair socks
  • Lycra pants
  • Jeans
  • Ski pants
  • Lycra undershirt
  • Stretch turtleneck
  • Fleece zip up
  • Fleece vest
  • Ski jacket
  • 2 pair gloves
  • Baseball hat
  • Earmuffs
  • Scarf

That's 16 items. But wait, what about underwear, Fitz? Make that 17.

Forget fashion, this intrepid reporter's strategy is simply to wear more of everything. When one pair of gloves doesn't do the trick, just add another.

But with wind chills in the single digits, even all of that clothing may not be enough. Thursday afternoon, Fitz tweeted a picture of his bright red nose with the caption, "Yep, it's official. I can't feel my nose."

Come inside and warm up, Fitz. And don't forget your ski mask tomorrow.
