Wool has many benefits and many of them are appropriate for outwear such as men's jackets and coats.  Wool is the textile fiber obtained from sheep and other animals, including cashmere and mohair from goats, qiviut from muskoxen, angora from rabbits, and other types of wool from camelids.  The benefits of wool include properties to help the wearer stay warm.

Wool is one of nature’s best insulating materials. Aside from being warmer than cotton, wool also dries much faster. The most widely available types of wool come from sheep. However, as mentioned above sheep aren't the only animals that produce wool-like fibers.

A coat is a garment worn by any gender, for warmth or fashion. Coats typically have long sleeves and are open down the front, closing by means of buttons, zippers, hook-and-loop fasteners, toggles, a belt, or a combination of some of these. Other possible features include collars, shoulder straps and hoods.  Coats are made from various fibers.  Wool is obviously one of the options.

A pea coat (or pea jacket, pilot jacket) is an outer coat, generally of a navy-colored heavy wool, originally worn by sailors of European and later American navies.  Pea coats are characterized by short length, broad lapels, double-breasted fronts, often large wooden, metal or plastic buttons, and vertical or slash pockets.  A few of the jackets seen on the street are genuine navy surplus; being a classic garment, it is frequently available from retailers, though often with small design changes that reflect the current fashion trends. The standard for historical pea coats was 30 ounces (approx. 850 g) wool, most often made of heavy Melton cloth through the 1970s in the U.S. Navy. Presently coats are made from 22–32 oz (620–910 g) wool. While pea coats are offered in many colors by retailers, the US Navy-issue pea coat is dark blue.

Here are a few benefits of wool that make it a good choice for outwear.
