    winter basics = heat tech as a base layer. but i wouldn't consider that "updating the wardrobe"

    i'm not much for layering tbh. just need some long sleeve shirts to make it through winter. usually fine with one layer once inside anywhere and if im outside i'll have a hoodie/vest or coat on.

    so...need some good henleys, waffle knits and long sleeves but apparently uniqlo is spotty with some of that.

    I used to work out in uniqlo dry something tees that were treated with some anti-microbe, odor bullshit and they still stunk after a workout. Same thing with my nike dry fit tees because they're all made out of polyester. I've been working out in ck wife beaters (100% cotton) the past month and they do not smell at all so I'd say don't believe the hype, synthetic is always garbage (no matter what fok says).

    Do the long johns work well beneath a pair of jeans for winter?

    ^ yes. I mean, if your winter is bad, then yes. pretty much what its designed for

    In the winter for me, it gets to be maybe high 40s at the very worst but I wear the heattech stuff all winter to stay cozy. Don't wear them under jeans just because it's not that cold.

    Well, 15 degrees + biking makes it pretty cold, so sounds like a solution I'll try this winter - thanks! :)

    This.



    Hell yes. Heat Tech as a base layer under everything I wore while visiting Ohio last Christmas saved me from freezing to death!

    I picked up a shawl cardigan sweater in Tokyo a few week ago for 3900 yen, not cold enough to wear it yet but looked like a good deal to me. Not available in the states yet.

    heattech works really well to keep you warm as a base layer IME.

    Well… in short, yes. Then again all the fat idiots I see going around in exercise clothes, yoga pants and sports tights may disagree.

    Same here it's Fall and I'm wearing tank tops.

    I think the heattech alone looks fine. I bought some short sleeve which I plan to wear in the brutal winter cold months so my nipples don't get iced out.

    I almost mentioned it before but all the heattech stuff has 3/4 sleeves, and some of it is pretty sheer. I wouldn't wear it as a main layer. You're better off just buying a real shirt and then wearing your coat over that.
