    I inquired about this before, but times and fashions change....

    Would you wear a full-length mink coat? Classic, conservative, dressy overcoat style....nothing flashy or implicative...Dark brownish color, silky soft fur, blinding shine, nice coat really...
    Your significant other likes you in the coat.

    Would you wear it?

    Yes, but I would be naked underneath it.

    These two sentences do not go together. You can get a nice coat with a mink collar but a full blown mink puts you in pimp territory. You could also go for a voxsartoria style Bear Cat, all of the hair associated with mink but with none of the pimp.

    Unless you are a pimp or drug dealer, I would not wear a full-length mink coat.

    Was it 1890 when you last asked? Or are you Michael Irvin? If the answer to each of these questions is No, then please wear your SO out while wearing the coat, but do not wear the coat out.

    Namath will be outted soon. (Unless I get $12 and a cheeseburger.)

    On the coat, I have thought about this since the supply of cheap vintage mink is huge in our town, but would only wear it to a football game. Alas, the Vikings play indoors and the Gophers suck. Of course in St Paul, you can't swing a dead cat without hitting an institution of higher learnin'....

    What was my point? Oh go for it. And since I live where minks and ermines roam free... they wouldn't think nothing wearing you to a football game.

    I wonder how long would it take, after stepping outside, before some militant animal rights looney punch you in the face?
