Absolutely they do work. Chaps and lined jeans keep it good on most cold days on the South Coast.

Ditch the old school long johns as well, and get some Under Armour, or similar cold weather under garments.

Can't beat chaps for keeping the wind off your legs, and with the UA under neath, it can be quite enjoyable riding when it's cold out.

How cold is the winter in Arizona

I rode my old beater bike few winters ago in teen temps just to go to work bout 8 miles

They didn't look good but my carharts worked best

Use chaps most of the time

Even with long johns on my knees still freeze on the cold mornings. Just wondering, do chaps help keep some of the cold off the legs?
Yes they do but within a limited cold temp range. Each part of the country has different temp variations (dry climate vs damp climate)
and require different equipment to remain comfortable. I use several different levels of long johns (carhart long johns are great) along with heated pants when needed.

I use chaps and flannel lined jeans between 30 and 20 degrees mostly, below that I switch to a pair of riding pants over the lined jeans. I got the riding pants at Cycle Gear for about $19. The work really well to keep the cold and wind out.
