You have come to forum thread titled "Ask a question, get an answer" and have asked a question. Several people have responded, yet you don't seem to want to hear any of the answers.So? I even find it beneficial to have a small percentage of synthetic because it will surely give you more durability.
Of course 100% is a more luxurious product and will look better, but in the first rain shower will ruin the coat.
edit: But I think 30% polyamide may be too much.
80% wool 20% polyamyde was the most balanced
The "So" in my reply was in response to your inaccurate assumption of how textile blends work in a garment. If the body of a garment is made from a blend, unless it specifies "sleeves", then the entire garment is made from the same synthetic blend fabric. So in your case the entire coat is 30% synthetic. It may matter to you, it may not. It certainly does not matter to me, just trying to help you make an educated decision about your potential purchase.
Additionally, you have made another incorrect statement: "Of course 100% is a more luxurious product and will look better, but in the first rain shower will ruin the coat."
Rain will not ruin a 100% wool coat. 100% wool can maintain its insulating properties even when wet, and can absorb about 20/30% of their weight in water before it starts to leak through. Once dry, it will have no ill effects.
In the end, it is your money, not our money. You have asked and re-asked several questions, and seem to already be convinced to buy the coat.
As Simon said, you have already made up your mind.You seem to have convinced yourself you want it, whatever is said. My opinion is that the long one in wool is a classic, the short one just looks odd.
