Nusach Sefard & wool suits

Shu”t  Chasam Sofer  (O.Ch. 15b-16 ) The Shoel asks the Chasam Sofer about People
who wear woolen clothing if  they are allowed to serve as a Shliach Tzibur. 

The Shoel heard that Nusach Sefard doesn’t tolerate people who wear woolen clothing.
People who do so (wear wool)  are not worthy to daven Nusach Sefard.

In Teshuvah # 15  the Ch. S.  ridicules this statement. He says even if the chumra comes
from not wanting to be nichshal in Shatnez, it doesn’t make sense to differentiate between
Nusach Ashkenaz and Sefard.

In Teshuva 16 , Although The Chasam Sofer still  disagrees with the Shoel , he  treats the Shoel more
respectfully, being the Yismach Moishe confirmed , the  disallowing  of a Shaliach Tzibbur who  wears wool ( to daven Nusach Sefard). 

Perhaps we can say this statement originated  by a Gadol  who might have said, " people
 who daven Nusach Sefard don’t wear wool clothing". He was referring to Sefardim who reside
in warm countries.  

All he   was   trying to say, was  a fact,  Sefardim being they live in warm climate
countries don’t wear wool.  ( by doing so they are not  nichshal in Shatnez). He never
 meant to say , davening  Nusach Sefard requires one not to wear wool clothing.
