Me too. That said we have a Miele which is pretty decent. When I was working in the states the apartment had a top loading jobby which ruined untold clobber. I would never risk it with woollens.
More End X Tricker's
I mentioned this a while back but now it's released. Haglöfs 19FOURTEEN   It looks like a few pieces didn't make it to production or maybe they will be released at a later date but I think they have some really nice stuff. I like the fishtail and Lima a lot. Packs and footwear also look decent and pricing seems fair.       
What's the hype with Black Watch and Black Watch-esque shirts right now? Seems no retailer can stock enough to keep up with demand.
TK Maxx may be worth a look.
Hardshells have different fits depending on the activity they are designed for and if meant to be worn with/without middle layer/insulation. SV is a bit roomy for fashion IMO so probably better choosing a Trim Fit jacket but if it's for 'outdoors' I'd suggest going TTS.Arc'teryx website has details and their customer services are also really good if you need measurements.

I mean, I'm sure most agree the pricing is nuts these days and it irks a little but I do admire his honesty. Mind you if production costs really are so high that he's making no money at wholesale then at least I can console myself that when I buy it at -50/-60% end of season then it must be slightly better value. Or am I kidding myself? Either way you...
With Greenland it will be fine unlined. Just feel a bit stiffer. If you are worried try it out on a cheap item with a similar cloth and if you decide to go ahead try it on a small section first. I have played about waxing loads of cotton and polycotton clothing using Thornproof, Greenland, Belstaff wax and also proofing with Grangers, Fabsil, Nikwax etc. To start with I tried it out on army surplus, outdoorsy stuff and older pieces that weren't getting much wear. Although...
If waxing for the first time I would suggest using Fjallraven Greenland wax. Really simple to apply, not messy and you can apply in layers if you want more/less coverage in particular areas. Also it has a lighter finish, doesn't have that residue you get with thornproof and can be washed out more easily if you're not happy with the result.
