Many people are of the opinion that faux fur coats are rather gaudy, but personally I happen to think that if done properly they can look fantastic. The great thing about a faux fur coat is that you can get it in any style of animal that you want. You couldn’t get a real tiger coat, but a tiger faux fur coat? I own several of these exotic coats and I love them. The field the soft ground for is really unparalleled and the imitation of the animals coloring and patterns makes a quality faux fur coat the fun thing to wear.
Of course a lot of my friends have a good chuckle over my choices of faux fur coats. “You are a successful business woman,” they say, “what are you wearing and not God when he could actually be wearing the real thing?” “No chance,” I reply, and I proceed to tell them about why I have a love affair with my faux fur coat. What is tacky isn’t wearing a faux fur coat, it is, in my estimation, sporting something barbaric, cruel, and absurdly expensive on my back when the imitations are so clever as to be almost as good as the original.
Not to mention are just as warm and comfortable as the real thing. A fur coat only tells someone that you are rich, something which I don’t particularly care to broadcast to the world. I’m not quite that insecure. A faux fur coat tells people that you are a creature of unique and individual tastes who refuses to follow convention. That’s what I would like the world to know about me
I have been queried, because I like faux fur coats so much, if there are any other synthetic material is a prefer used over their natural counterparts. While I do confess a certain fondness for pleather, in that case it is usually far superior in my estimation to deal with the authentic article. For starters, I don’t feel anywhere near as guilty buying leather as I would if I bought fur.
While only one cow was slaughtered to make my leather jacket, dozens of poor adorable little rabbits would have to give their lives to make one actual rabbit fur coat. I don’t know that is fair or even make sense, but either way that’s how I feel. I guess it’s probably not so fair for the cow.
Besides that, leather is much softer and suppler than pleather. Although a faux fur coat is often as smooth and pleasant as real fur without the possibility of allergens, between pleather and good leather, there is scarcely more than a similarity. Others actually pretty basic that you prefer it to be either black or brown. It comes from a single animal, and in only a select few colors, so there is no sense in getting pleather in something along the lines of a zebra pattern. Now that’s tacky.
