    I'm sort of tempted by this. On the outside, a great Bogner jacket/overcoat. On the inside, full-length mink lining. A bit over the top - - I certainly wouldn't want to show it off to work colleagues. But pretty cool in my book. Sort of like having colorful real silk lining in a bespoke jacket. (I see the coat was made by Bogner in "Western Germany" so it's obviously at least, what, 15 years old. Still, I've got a Bogner ski jacket that's over 40 years old and still looks good as new -- they're built incredibly well. Like Filson for ski wear.) http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/ebayISAPI.dll...tem=4151562007 What do you think of it? Hideous?

    As you say, a bit over the top. But all the more attractive for it. If I lived somewhere colder, I'd buy it. I have a mink lined ski jacket I bought in Denver 15 years ago - and it was at least 5-10 years old then - and it still looks great.

    There is a long tradition in Bavaria/Austria to make Lodencoats with detachable fur-liners. The traditional fur used is called " May Hamster" (no idea whether this is a botanical species or just a name).

    I remember a few years back, the manufacturer Schneiders from Salzburg advertised a Lodencoat made from cashmere with mink lining.
