How do you put on an unlined wool coat over a sweater without wanting to kill people?

It's a serious question. Or any other jacket with rough fabric inside the sleeves that pulls against a sweater.

thats usually a problem only solved when the shirt or sweater is long sleeve and i just grab the ends of the sleeve with my fist and run my arms through the coat.

other than that, you'll just have unsightly rolls and folds silouette showing through the arms and shoulders of your jacket.

that is why i always try to buy coats with a smooth nylon lining surface or something like that.

seconded on the grabbing. i just grab the ends of my long sleeve shirts and put my arms through the armholes. if it's a short sleeve shirt, i just stick my hands through the opening of the jacket into the armhole and smooth out the sleeve from there.
