HI all,

For those of us who wear business attire on a daily basis, what is the best thermal under-coat that would be thin enough to put under a cashmere coat?
im talking montreal weather, currently at -16C w/windchill...

thanks

You mean an actual coat or a base layer? Mec.ca sells an expedition grade base layer that is waffle knit fleece - terrifically warm.
