Hi,

 

 

I am a 29 year old guy living in West-Europe, not a very cold climate, more like neutral. But i do like fur coats and parka's (parajumpers, moncler, woolrich, welovefurs, bogner, bomboogie, ....)

I own several, but due to some kind of 'stigma/taboo' around fur for men, i did not usually wear this in public.

What is your opninion on this coat (I have exactly the same model), see pictures.

Is this acceptable in your region?

What do you think

Just Wear it ! If you Feel uncomfortable,  start at a region were you do not expect to meet many people (evening, forest, etc.) Once you experience that nobody will do a remark on a normal piece of garment you will hopefully become more confident.

That worked for me and now I am wearing more unusual furpieces throughout my hometown.

That's totally fine, pretty cool parka in fact! I have a similar Moncler and wear mine regularly through the winter here in the UK. 

I suppose the best piece of advice if you're feeling a bit shy is just remember nobody is noticing it as much as you are 🙂 just wear what you feel comfortable with buddy.

I wear the Moncler Cluney, and the Maya. 🙂

I have a couple more off eBay, but they are from the womenswear collection. (Yes I love the brand 😅)

Wow that's impressive.

And can you wear it in public?

 

Can you post some picture of it? Or send them in a pm?

 

I would love that. What a fantastic and expensive jacket!!

@Ahri: I think this is a very nice jacket to wear - for me that is to be weared totally unisex; you can wear it throughout europe without problems.

 

Feel confident !

Thanks a lot for all the positive comments and advice.
When I see an opportunity, I will wear it (when it's cold enough).

It's so comforting, warm and soft, I love it.

I wear my Arctic Army Parka almost daily, and they have some of the biggest fur trims i know of. The only remarks I got came from my coworkers and they were all positive. One male coworker jokingly commented "Ready  for your expedition to Antarctica?" and one female coworker said I looked like some sort of Baron or Duke haha

Thanks for your commen @Cyclobasti

I know the brand. And the fur collar looks very nice, bombastic over the top even. 

The lining of these coats are fake fur (but high quality) but i prefer a real rabbit fur if possible.



Where I live, real fur parka's and coats for men are not commen. And there is a slight stigma when wearing it as a men I suppose.

Because I think its more popular with some people who cause unrest (sometimes from an foreign ethnic origin).

Otherwise when you don't look tall, strong and masculin, I have the impression that it can come across as feminin or womanish.

But that's my only opnion.

How more I try it on at home and how more I look around, the more reasonable it looks to try it in public.

I suppose I should not overthink it and just go for it 😉

Yeah, most people don't care what you are wearing, only anti fuckers

I'm 29 aswell, and I've worn fur trimmed parkas for a long time. My most recent and most extravagant one is a Cedrico Fernand jacket, that has a massive raccoon hood trim, aswell as rabbit fur lining of the hood and collar. I'll admit it took some convincing myself to let that out of the closet, but once I did it felt great.

If you want to feel more confident, save it for those really cold crisp days, when people will look at you in envy while freezing in their shoddy, patchwork winter attires!

Also, here on Norway,  "everyone" wears parajumpers, boys and girls alike! So wear it!
