Default fwiw cap 1-4 refers to Patagonia Capilene

putting anything tigher over something looser always feels FUCKED UP...

maybe a larger size? (anything NOT cotton goes without saying, but I would stay away from vinyl too )you're talking just a straight Tee? I actually wear a north face tee (it is not form fitting underwear, it fits like a t but is some kind of high performance shit) that I use for hiking in the summer over my bottom layer, which brings up a point I failed to emphasize:

Not to disagree with Kirkrider, but it made me realize this point: Cap 3 or higher is alot like the merino sweater I mentioned, and is great if you are cold, but here is the point I wanted to make: still wear a relaxed fit super thin baselayer such as capilene 1 (what I have currently) or silk. This ultra thin layer especially in a relaxed fit is going to do alot of science for the actual surface warmth on your skin, everything else is just insulating that layer from the cold.

Which brings me back full circle on the tee shirt: these super thin baselayers are fragile and do not hold up well to the more robust fabrics, buttons, velcros and other various things that are on my jacket, so I just wear a high performing tee over it to protect the fabric itself. I run so hot these are the only layers under my jacket 75% of the year anyway.

so my modified layer list for maximum coldnesses:

-cap 1 or silk
-high performance t shirt
-merino sweater (similar, probably superior but more $$ too, to cap 3 and 4)
