Does it have any poly in it?

Nope 80 wool 20 nylon

Nylon is poly, I really hope the patchwork jacket shown at Pitti isn't the same, the metal latch can be removed but I'm SOL if fabric composition isn't kosher.

MH shirt blazer?

So 20% nylon is bad? I hate polyester as much as the next guy but I haven't really found many 100% wool blazers in my price range.

Dunno what you mean by "bad". You haven't looked well enough because many times 100 wool blazers are cheaper than blends. 'Top' designers usually get away with charging more for blends than 'non-top' designers do for pure wool.

I have a couple of Barena jackets that are an 80% wool/20% polyamide blend. My understanding is that the PA is added for durability. I like them, although I prefer to wear them with a collared shirt since the wool can be a tiny bit itchy.

100% wool is generally a CM preoccupation - wool being the classic cloth for mens suits. Many (maybe most) designers experiement with different materials to get different effects. Armani, as an example, doing some pretty cool stuff back in the 1980s.. While I would personally not consider polyester in a suit for work, I wuld buy a casual blazer with it if I liked the styiing.
