Fur coats

Fur coats, you see them with many hanging at second hand markets. They all belonged to our mothers who are dead now. The daughters don't dare to wear them in the streets as it is not done anymore to wear fur. I must admit I have one in my closet too, inherited from my mother when she had died. I have never worn it, but sometimes I take it out, look in the mirror, it fits me very well..... I still hope we once get a terrible icy cold winter...

  6. It is a shame that the coats aren't worn. I personally would never buy a fur coat and support that industry, but it seems like a waste for perfectly good old fur coats not to be worn. My grandmother had one that my mom tried to give to me or my sister but neither of us wanted it either. I'm pretty sure it ended up in a thrift store.

  9. Does seem a shame not to wear them Marianne, not a new one, well hopefully there aren't any new ones, but for the old ones it seems a shame for the animal to die for nothing.

  12. I haven't seen one in years. A Inuit friend of ours made my wife a fur-coat when we lived in Alaska. It was gorgeous but when we left, she gave it away, it wouldn't be cold enough to wear.

  17. I suppose if it's very cold people would wear them, but I understand that nowadays it's politically incorrect to wear them.
