"Ne'er cast a clout till May be out."
Don't remove winter vests (undergarments) until summer arrives.

Stuarty, I dont think the saying has anything to do with being ill all year. Usually it was chilly up until the end of May so we wore warm clothing. Hopefully, after the end of May the climate would get warmer. Hence the saying "ne'er cast a cloot til May is oot." I'm fairly certain this is the origin of the saying. Over here in America white was not worn from July 4 through Labor Day at the beginning of September.

Correction on my post. White WAS worn from July 4 until Labor Day. Considered not fashionable after those dates.

Think you will find this has nothing to do with May the month, but the May Hawthorn. "Until May is out" is actually referring to the blossom on the May Hawthorn. Once it's bloomed then it's considered mild enough to venture out without thick winter clothing.

I remember my Granny telling me that a cloot was a linen vest and you had to keep you chest covered until the weather got warm.
