Where is the best place to pickup layer pieces i.e. merino tights and socks? I look pretty bad in denim or cotton trousers, so, going to just layer up and wear my spring weight wool trousers that drape a whole lot better.
Was considering Uniqlo tights but they are seasonal and probably not as warm. Plus, I'd prefer the wool fabric, authenticity in material versus a blend of polyester.
I know @Tigerprawn is a big advocate of merino base layers. Help me out (:
I bought a pair of Uniqlo leggings to try out and although heatech is a decent enough material, I like their Tee's, they are let down by very dodgy seams and generally feeling very cheap and nasty. If you're going down the syththetic route then I'd recommend choosing something from any of the proper sport specific brands. HellyHansen Lifa are fairly cheap but better designed and constructed with slimmer cuffs, flatlock stitching and better quality elastic waists.
