Anyone seen "insulated pants" at Costco? All other brands seem to be $150+.
Not sure how insulated you need, but I got some heat tech pants from Uniqlo that are quite warm. Wear another heattech layer under for real cold days. Price was 40ish

Kids Puma sweat pants bought last year are horrible, wore new this season and already holes in the knees.

Buffalo boys boxer briefs are terrible. Waist elastics are stretched out after a couple of wears.

Levi's jeans are nowhere near the quality of the $90 pair you can get at the Levi's store, although at around $30, and because they're a bit stretchy and let's face it, no one is getting any younger... they're still a good buy.

Agree with the Paradox base layers! The Bula ones are super warm but don't appear to last as long.
The Paradox pants are smaller than the last batch. Have to exchange my latest order for a bigger size.

Years ago, but their Merino wool socks are great. Someone mentioned they're from the same factory/specs as smartwool.

I bought four pairs last November, but they are not as warm as the ones bought a year earlier. The label says 78% Merino wool versus 80% of the old socks. Could 2% makes such a noticeable difference in keeping the feet warm. Also the newer Kirkland Trail woolen socks are smaller (tighter) and not as soft and fluffy.

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.
+1 for Costco's Kirkland brand dress shirts. I've always found they wore well and looked good.

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 this BC Clothing fleece zip hoodie today. Looks warm for sure but right away noticed poor quality zip. Still thinking to keep it though...

Another vote for Kirkland brand dress shirts.

Many years ago, in a trip to the USA I got a button down shirt, .... I paid USD $15, can't beat that. The shirt is still alive
