What Base Layers?

I want to get some tights and a long sleeve base layer for racing. I've already got jerseys and bibs - what brands/styles should I look for?

I am tempted by these wool bib-knickers for winter riding:

i grabbed some swobo stuff on sale = goodness.

wool will sag badly when wet. It is great as a base layer, but not so awesome as a top layer when wet
