Logic would suggest so only if you want to wear lighter cloth, i.e. silk and lighter cloth might equate to a standard lining and heavier (slightly) cloth. I like heavier cloth and have no desire to opt out of a cooler lining for a warmer one so that I can wear something lighter. Of course, if you're in Moscow or something, and no matter how heavy the cloth is you feel cold, it couldn't hurt, but at this stage, I don't think a lining change is what's needed: a great coat might be in order.
