Another one who usually uses layers of wool.  But have been known to
throw on a Woolrich chamois shirt or Filson Alaska Guide shirt for
wind blockage.

Might try some Showers Pass stuff this winter.  My local shop is going
to carry them.

For pants, anything from Swobo knickers and long wool socks to RBW
wool not so tights under MUSA pants.

I would recommend the icebike website ( for
lots of good practical information.

For me, fashion takes a back seat to comfort.  Especially in winter.

BTW, Getz Department Store in Marquette, MI is listed as a Filson
flagship dealer.  With some luck they might still have US made shirts
available.  Never been to the store.  It's listed in the latest Filson
