UnderArmour alternatives? Yes, no, maybe so?

I'm hunting for a less expensive alternative to Under Armour ColdGear for a base layer, but have no idea even where to start.
College marching band + good football team = night games in November (go team!) + Upper Midwest = cold band members. The band staff recommends Under Armour ColdGear through the bookstore. But that's $100 for shirt+tights (female), which is a lot of money out of a college kid's budget. While I've got no (real) problem shelling out the $$ for her if the brand is worth it, I don't know. Is it? Is there something equivalant w/o the brand name price? Wool is not an option, for a number of reasons.

And what about socks? Must be black, must be non-wool, must fit into current marching shoes, so not thick. (layers are acceptable, if lightweight.)
I'm not looking for cheap knockoffs that won't keep her warm. Heavy fleece-y stuff won't work under the uniform.
If UnderArmour is the way to go, where's the best place to get it, or is it essentially the same price everywhere?
