Currently available in Uniqlo for £14.99 each - polo necks, round necks, buttoned round necks, ribbed or normal.

Also some very nice polyeste3r fleeces in a good mix of colours with long backs to them, again £14.99...

There may also be blokes' ones, but I didn't check.

    I am wearing a Uniqlo men's merino crew-neck sweater as I type - incredibly comfy and again only £15. Though it's in daytime wear large rather than on-bike extra-small :)

    Hadn't heard of them before. Just had a brief look at the website. Their stuff is pretty reasonable pricewise. What is the quality like?

    Seems good so far. The only things I've bought from Uniqlo that have done a decent amount of service are jeans, which are cheap, well cut and very serviceable, though they are starting to wear through at the crotch. However, all my jeans wear through at the crotch, from the most expensive to the cheapest.

    I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt and assume that you are occasionally cycling in them.

    If not, you could try getting a glass desk so that everyone in your office can see what you are up to. This might encourage you not to wear the crotch of your jeans out so fast.

    Bought my missus one of these a little while back: http://www.jejamescycles.co.uk/id35284.html

    Medium is fairly fitted.

    EDIT: I nearly missed out on noticing the well known fashion garment that is the woolen hooded dress:

    Perfect for the upcoming festive season.

  • they call underwear "innerwear". why?
  • I have a couple of their selvedge jeans a v-neck merino sweater. Quality is good, better than stores like GAP.
    Never worn the merino as a cycling thermal though and I'm not sure if the cut is suitable (i.e if I get an xtra small it will probably be too short)

    Is it because, for all the good it does, you might as well shove it up your 8rse? :shock:

  • I will be wearing the roll-neck (which they call a polo-neck) as a cycling base layer, it's pretty long in a snug-fitting size...

    Had a look and they have same deal for men. Also some decent looking long sleeve base layers for 7 squid.

    This works a treat (got one myself in Men's style)

    And if you want to stay warmer, get this (also got one in Brown Mens - wear it constantly):

    All their kit is head and shoulders above anything else similar and properly ethically made too.
