FWIW, however, my father likes to break my balls for wearing albert slippers all the time. He says the only person who would wear sometihng like that was Liberace. That kills me.

Yes, but only in the Canadian style -- fur inside, hide outside and covered by wool (or not).

I bought a parka with a fur collar last year. The label says it's padded with fur too, which seems strange. Still. I really like it and it's very warm.

I'm not sure I could go for the full-fur look. A fur collar on a wool overcoat, perhaps. Fur can look very sexy on women.

It really can! I love it when they have those short sable coats with the cinched waist. Looks sexy. Also think it looks cute when a girls face is framed by a fur hood.

I agree. I would never wear a fur coat UNLESS... it was done to piss off a PETA convention. Then, yes, I would wear it for the political incorrectness. Besides that ONE SITUATION, no, never.

Almost walked right into the middle of one of their protest on 5th ave. a couple months back while wearing a fur coat. I am so glad I heard them screaming from a block away! I immediately turned the corner headed to madison! Did not want to die for the dead animals I was wearing!

Listen... Next time you know of a PETA protest and you are wearing a fur coat... call me and I will go buy one just to go walk through it with you.
