Lining Unlined Wool Coats

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hey guys- just got an unlined Navy J. Crew Seamount Duffle for a steal, but it's unlined unfortunately, leaving that itchy wool exposed... I was wondering if adding lining to a duffle coat was possible through a tailor without breaking the bank? It would be pretty cool to have a jacket with your own custom lining, I'm thinking some sort of flannel pattern, maybe a classic blue/green tartan, suggestions?  I'm looking to spend about 70 tops.

Are you looking for a winter coat? Then go with polyester batting inside in a nylon liner. If you're looking for a three season coat, a cotton or cotton/polyester lining might be more suitable.

Ah, I didn't even think about blends- I'm most likely going to go for a cotton lining as I'm looking for a three season coat. Do you think a cotton lining is enough to get rid of that wool itchiness? If not, I'm also considering throwing in polyester batting into the mix.

 

Seeing as you've jumped to suggesting linings, I'm assuming that this coat can be lined?

That's what you want in a three season coat. You could go nylon if you live in a rainy climate; otherwise I think cotton is fine for what you want.

 

I would say consult a dry cleaning shop/tailor and ask them what three season coat linings they recommend. They'll let you know if it can be lined and give you an estimate if that's possible.
