My Top 5 Fur Sightings from Recent Seasons


Recommended Posts



Some of you may recall a series of posts by me in the last two winters detailing some of my many fur sightings around parts of the southern UK. This winter I have still been seeing a fair few furs despite my emigration to Spain, some over here and a good few on trips back to the UK in December and January. I have been pleasantly surprised with the volume of furs in the shops over here and in seeing some nice furs around too, plus loads of furs crop up on the television shows too, on presenters and audience members too. And my small local town has given me a surprising and delightful handful of fur sightings too - with a new one spotted as recently as two hours ago.


However this season, rather than detailing all of my sightings from the winter I thought I would just list my top 5 public fur sightings from this season so far, and from the last two winters too. The lists are of course entirely subjective from those sightings and encounters that I expect will live longest in my memory, so may not feature the best furs seen or the most glamorous wearers; many stand out from the surprise element of the sighting. I've also omitted listing any furs worn by friends, family or models.


So, here we go:
