Can I wear wool in the rain?

When I put on a coat and go out for the day, I don't feel like me. Other than a couple light weight (aka non-warm) coats, none of my coats are a reflection of my style. So I go out into the rain and/or cold actually feeling uncomfortable about what I'm wearing. I've been long searching for the perfect winter coat and it would be:

  • Long. Mid-calf to floor length
  • Fitting, it would need to be an XS or size 2 on top
  • Gothy, i.e. black and preferable one that laces up the back and maybe even some silver decorative buckles or clasps
  • Warm! This needs to be my winter coat that I can wear even at 6:30 in the morning out in the cold while standing at the bus stop.

So this coat I recently saw on eBay is the closest I've come to it so far. They will even custom make it to your measurments!

The perfect coat?


But $250 (with shipping)? Oy! I don't know, maybe I should break down and pay it. I mean every gothy beautiful coat I've ever seen at Lip Service or Hot Topic or online were ALL thin (like leather or brocade fabric) and not heavy enough to keep warm. But if I fork over the big bucks for this coat, what happens when it rains? Doesn't water actually ruin wool?
