What are your thoughts?

Blonde Mink Faux Fur Full-Length Hooded Coat | Fabulous-Furs
I don't like it, b/c mink is typically not that colour.

Also depends on who is wearing it. If you are tall, slender it might look ok, otherwise I don't think it's all that flattering.

My family member owned a few real minks, cost like 10k each and also ways needed summer storage. Not worth the trouble for real fur and uncool to animals too.

Faux is okay, but i didn't like the style of the pic.

Then you haven't been to any Harvard hockey games. But nowadays they wear it on the inside of the coats.

People that wear faux furs (and jewelry) are trying to make a statement that they may have loads of money. I find it good comedy.

A reasonable study of significant sample size would yield some plausibility... Please provide some documentable proof, and no here say.

First, I am not in Queensland... that was for a vacation for a while, but I sense that reading comprehension was never someone's strong suit.
Second, I get wierded out by your fascination with me.
Third, may I recommend you block me, as I will block you, because I only deal with intellectuals, and not stall muckers.

'Nuff' said.

Fur is still fashionable... Personally, not a big fan of raccoon, as they wore at Harvard (but I went to the games 20 years ago), but the SO gets a female-pelt full length mink for Xmas

I think it is beautiful. I've been looking at Dennis Basso coats on QVC for a year or two. I prefer faux fur to be not too realistic, because it never does look really real.

If the coat makes you feel happy, then wear it. I think it would look sharp with tall boots.

Faux fur is fake, real fur is cruel.


I think I'd rather be fake.


But I'm a vegetarian going on five years now...sooooo I don't think anyone's going to catch me wearing fur.

Nor me. I'd never wear fur. Really compassion rules fur out for any kind person!

As far as Faux Fur goes, NO AGAIN! Since I'm ethically opposed to fur, why would I want to look as though I'm wearing it?

Also, much Faux fur is mixed with real fur - from dogs and cats! They make most faux fur in Asia and this is a common practice.

Go vegan or shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

LOL

There are animal by-products in so many things that is harvested in a very cruel fashion.
If you care enough to go veggie you should take the next step.

To hate fur and use other products is hypocritical.

Done the vegan thing and its not that hard. so....get on it or put the soap box away.


Slightly off topic but slightly on topic i guess.

Not a slap in the face on anti fur opinions, but more a kick in the bum to go all the way before pointing your fingers at others.
