I'll vouch for the proper wool thing. I've been wearing wool pants with my armor for the last 5 years, even in 90+ degree temps and doing combat, and it does breath surprisingly well.

Welcome!

I love my wool chausses. I dislike my linen shirt. The chausses are slightly itchy, at first. But the linen is very uncomfortable under a gambeson for me.
the linen also wrinkles like there is no tomorrow.
