Ever since I was a small child I've loved everything about fur. The look, feel and smell. Anyway, I was browsing on eBay and found a gorgeous ++size full length mink that was uni-sex in style so I bought it for a terrific price and it arrived yesterday. It fits beautifully so I intend to wear it come next winter. Speaking as a guy I've just never had the confidence to wear a full length coat in public but having realised how fragile life is recently, I've decided to hell with it - I'll do what makes ME happy! I have a gorgeous sable scarf which I found in a charity/shrift shop for a few pounds. Turns out it was Russian sable! Obviously, neither the doners nor the shop staff had any idea what it was. It was originally a stole but my local furrier re-modelled it into a scarf which I've worn it to great acclaim for five winters now and it's had nothing but compliments. However, a scarf is one thing - an ankle length coat is something else! The first problem will be telling my wife. My wife has four fur coats, one made specifically and the other three were acquired second hand. To be completely honest, I don't think my wife has ever been into the whole fur thing and wears them simply to please me. I'm honestly not sure what she'll think. I will tell her over the next couple of weeks but I'm kind of working myself up to it. My initial plan is to wear it to places I know really well. I'll drive as opposed to using public transport. Under no circumstances will I wear it to work! I've done a bit of reading on the subject and the consensus is broadly positive although most of the male fur wearers tend to be black with high profiles. I know I'll be very self conscious to begin with but I hope that'll eventually wear off. (My parents bought me a sheepskin coat when I was 18 and it took me a long time to wear it in public. Now I wouldn't bat an eyelid!) I'd really appreciate any input other forum members could give me. Many thanks in advance.
