Costco clothing - post good and bad finds

I want to start a thread about clothes/shoes at Costco for anyone to update with their good finds and also bad ones. I'll start:

1. Oct 31: - ordered the Bula thermal top and pants for ladies online, and received them - seem to be much better quality than the Cdntire Wind River ones.
- none of their gloves in the store fit me, are my fingers too short?
- Parasuco pants for work are stretchy, have mock zip and don't crease, so I love these - but had to buy a size larger than normal
2. If you found any good warm black leggings that one can wear to the office, please post here.
3. BC Clothing fleece zip hoodie for men bought last year is super warm, but zip is erratic and wimpy (will not buy again)

I bought NIcole Miller leggings, two in a pack for $16.99. Not bad quality and great price.

100% Merino wool long sleeve T shirts. Super warm and comfy, and look good under a sports jacket or blazer. Cheap, something like $25.
18% = GTA residents as a proportion of Canada's total population
97% = chance that an RFDer lives in the GTA when he posts something location specific, without giving a location

Were you hit with surprise customs/import fees on an Amazon.ca purchase?

Anyone seen "insulated pants" at Costco? All other brands seem to be $150+.

Pants as in jeans? They do have insulated jeans for about $25 or so. Might vary by location.

I like the made in Canada Bula 2 pack merino wool toques and beanies. I've also seen Bench hats but they were loose fit and loose knit, not as warm.

Costco Uggs seem to be a "Costco special", the quality is not there - made in China, doesn't even say Australia on the back. Seems to be almost identical to the Kirkland "short shearling boots" with a cheap ugg brand patch at the back.

They have BC Clothing insulated cargo pants for around $25, basically a pair of long johns sewn in to the pants. Not sure how much insulation you need, but they've worked well for me shoveling snow in -20+ temps last year. They also have sunice snow pants as well that seem to be good quality.

I like the latest generation of dress shirts. They're basically identical in build and design to the ones at Marks Work Warehouse but at 1/3 the price.

I don't like that they only have one 2XL shirt per box though.

Agree with the Paradox base layers! The Bula ones are super warm but don't appear to last as long.

[Merino wool long sleeve T shirts] Cloudveil. Thin, like T shirt cotton. Have a look here: https://www.costco.ca/Cloudveil-Merino- ... 66520.html
