Bought a set of thermals (Long Johns & long sleeve shirt) last year from Asda for a trip to Canada. Now use them on the Bike, Toasty. As good as anything I've bought from an outdoor emporium and if i remember less than a tenner!
I have some Merino wool longjohns and top. Bought them from M&S on one of those 50% sale days they had before Christmas. Think they're normally around £30 each, but worth every penny. They're absolutely brilliant, much better than the old synthetic set I had.
I got mine from Marks & Spencers, they are reasonably priced and toasty warm! As for inner glve, I got myself silk ones. They are much better than ones using man-made materials as well as being really thin.
If it's purely for use on the bike - M&S . Look like an extra from a Western - but they work.
Long johns and long sleeve vest , buy 2 sets, double them up if required.
The expensive technical stuff - North Face etc is brill , but unless you are doing serious hard physical work and sweating , where they really come into their own with wicking etc , they are a wast of money. Probably last longer than the M&S stuff though.
The secret to staying warm on the bike is layering , and not letting yourself become cold in the first place. If you wait until your chilled before puting on the extra layers - your goosed !!
