When we're commuting, we typically plan for limited but efficient layering to minimize the amount of garments and accessories you need to wear in and possibly pack home when the temps rise later in the day. On colder days, we choose a Keystone Jacket and a base layer, like the High Grade Wool. On days with more dramatic temperature swings, we recommend the Alpine Thermal Jersey and a vest such as the Divide Wind Vest. The Divide easily packs up and the Alpine Jersey can be comfortably worn in temps as high as 65° F.
One of the most versatile items we've made for commuting is the Storm+ 12-Hour Bibs. They have an incredibly comfortable, ultra-long distance chamois and are completely engineered with water-repelling fabric. While fleece lined, they are extremely breathable, making them great a choice up to 65° F. Pair them with other the Storm+ water-repelling Knee or Leg Warmers, or the Alpine Warmers on colder days. All easily pack into your bag or pockets if you don't need them for the afternoon ride home.
