    I have been looking for a new wool overcoat and I keep coming across those with poly lining. Wool breathes but polyester doesn't, so what is the end result? Do I get warm and sweat or freeze or what? What is the point of combining a breathable fabric shell with an essentially plastic lining anyway?

    Polyester as a lining is quite warm and certainly warmer compared to an unlined wool coat.

    Or you can get one with silk lining, but the prices will be higher.
