why do ppl wear wool instead of down jackets?

I have both a down and wool jacket. A wool jacket doesn't keep someone warm in the winter. There is no contest. I don't know why so many ppl keep wearing wool coats in the wintet months. Perhaps because they can't afford a down jacket so they cheap out on a cheap wool jacket?

It's the same reason why not everyone has down comforter.

Yes, because company CEOs can't afford them. -_-

depends what you're doing outdoors. I'd wear my down if I plan on being outside for more than 30 minutes otherwise I'd layer in a wool jacket if I'm in and out of buildings with minimum time outside constantly

The money that I save from buying a wool jacket can go towards my Monster HDMI cables.

^ Best response.

Wool drapes, has an amazing texture and looks sophisticated when paired with a suit or cardigan underneath + a scarf. Plus, it's amazingly warm when worn with the previous mentioned. Down jackets are too puffy (even the "slim-fit" ones), "outdoor / sporty" looking (looks like something you wear when you go dog sledding) and usually have a logo slapped on somewhere.

I wouldn't say that's necessarily so..my wool jacket + wool cardigan/sweater combinations cost more than mid-level (CG, MK, Nobis, etc.) down jackets + a t-shirt lol. I just can't bring myself to buy a down jacket at that price range because they're not versatile in more formal social functions. I do have a couple which I use for cold outdoor activities which I admit, they're great for :)

Why would you assume down jackets are always more expensive than wool ones? You should step out of Wal-mart once in a while.

Dumbest thread of the month right here.

Don't assume all wool coats aren't warm based on your cheap "wool jacket".

Also, the weather in southern Ontario isn't always below -30C. Unlike what people with down jackets seem to think.

My wool jackets are pretty warm, and I can always just toss on an extra layer underneath if I need to. I don't know what kind of cheap ***** you're wearing.
Could HAVE, not could OF. What does 'could of' even mean?
