Uniqlo's 'tech support

Now that the days are turning brisk, your ordinary undershirt won't cut it. Head for—where else?—Uniqlo, further cementing its all-things-for-all-people status with the new Heattech line. Heattech's technical fibers actually help generate and retain warmth by absorbing body moisture—its movement generates heat. (An antibacterial agent in the fabric helps control odor, too.) We can't explain the science of it, but we can report that we've taken it for a test run and the stuff does keep you toasty, so why ask why? It's only going to get colder, and these pieces will be welcome whether you're on the subway or, as Uniqlo's ads fancifully suggest, at the chalet. Best of all, unlike most of Uniqlo's garb, you can get Heattech items online—no fighting the Jil Sander +J crowds (though, admittedly, that kind of vigorous exercise would likely keep you pretty warm, too).
Tees, turtlenecks, and long johns, $10.50 to $15.50, available at uniqlo.com
