I use mountain warehouse base layers and thermals. Allows me to ride all year round.  Good quality and well priced. They also sometimes do buy 3 items for 2.
Fun stuff = Zxr400, Daytona 675, Striple 675, Speed 1050, Striple 675 (bought it back and keeper),
Work mules = Versys 650, Kawasaki er6f, Suzuki gsx1250fa

Some of the MW stuff is good value. But I bought a merino wool base top from there  (brand was Parallels or something) and it was itchy and quite a coarse weave so not that warm, compared to my Icebreaker merino top which cost twice as much but is actually very good and worn a lot unlike the cheap one that stays inv the cupboard for 'emergencies' (and could possibly serve as a hair shirt for monastic/ascetic penance purposes).

Aldi Merino at 17 a couple of months ago was good value and not itchy whatsoever, unlike the Triumph stuff, which was itchy and scratchy and very thin, so holed easily  :230:

EDZ Merino Wool lasts well.

I've also got edz synthetic base layers which are good. Haven't tried any merino except the cheap Parallels sort  (horrible) and the Icebreaker which is great, not itchy at all, smart enough to pass as a proper top for pub wear when touring, but a bit expensive. Something in the middle would be good. Cheers for the tip Red.

When I bought my mountain warehouse base layer I also got one of sports direct ones they called Cabrini  or something close to that it works V well too and they are reduced to only 8.50 a bargain
