One for the UK Lasses/Lads - In need of some cosy PJs...? Then head to Millets
As it's getting colder, I thought I'd mention that Millets has a 'buy one get one half-price' offer on all Peter Storm base-layers - and that they make brilliant thermal PJs. I'm on my second set (had a set last year, when I was sleeping rough in Scouseville - and I reckon I'd have been done-in by the cold if I hadn't! Unfortunately, they went AWOL. So when I was in Oxford on Thursday, meeting Hilary, I popped into Millets after we parted at the station).
The pieces are sold separately (probably a good thing, as we're not all the same size on the top as the bottom - or vice versa) but this does mean you might not find a matching set (I was lucky; I found a very fetching little number in Cadbury purple with white flowers).
Sizes are from XS (10) to XL (18) so, if you're smaller than that, they're not going to be very fitted (so useless for their original purpose). If you look at the size chart on Millets's site, you'll see it states XS is 8; it's not for these, it's 10 (according to the size chart on the back of the packaging).
Not sure about the blokes' ones (for obvious reasons) but they all seem to start at S (32-34" chest/28" waist) and go up to XXL (44-46/40").
Offer runs until the end of the month - original price £14.99 each; offer price: - £11.24.
They got me through a Scouse winter (and it got down to -F last year) so they come very well recommended.

Just thought someone might find it useful.

That is the second time that you have specifically said -F. The first time was in your thread started on Nov 15 that has since been locked due to the insanity. "I spent last winter on the streets of Liverpool; the temperatures hardly ever rose above negative F."
