dumb base layer question

so this year im going to ride in a pair of long underwear similar to the UA cold gear 2.0 etc (compression), so heres my question, do you roll the bottom up so that its not in the boot, or do you put it over your sock? what do people do? also are people free balling under these things or rocking some sort of non cotton boxer briefs?

I wear spandexy boxer briefs, then smartwool long underwear, I do not put them in my boots, I just bunch them up right to the tops.

I get weird pressure points with my long underwear in my boots.

32 boxers...made from the same stuff as their baselayer. I always put my baselayer pant leg over my sock so it goes into the boot.

Only a dump question if you are worried about you base layer top color matching your base layer bottom color....some on here are worried about such a thing.

I pull my socks over my base layer. I only were a bottom base layer in very cold conditions, it has to be below 15 degrees with wind chill around 0 for me to were a bottom base layer, both pairs of snow board pants I have a thin layer of insulation.

I don't wear anything cotton when I ride.

I am a HUGE fan of the smartwool baselayer. I wear it every time I ride.

It all about what works for you, if that keeps you out in the snow all day with out getting cold than no reason to change up. If you are are retreating in doors after a couple of hours than is time to look for something different...Lift tickets and travel cost too much to have retreat inside because its cold!
