Not a bear? Wear-a-bear! (Well, fur anyway…)
While spending time in Milan last winter, I noticed that everyone was wearing fur. Chic women, grandmas at the bodega and even men. I thought I had stepped off the plane into a petting zoo. Back in America, I noticed the man-fur (not the kind you get waxed) trend played peek-a-boo with those annoying fur trimmed coats. Oh, wait, I totally meant awesome…
This year, I think men may be getting a bit braver and going full pelt. Many F/W shows featured looks in all out fur and I think it might catch on. It’s still a bit warm to tell, but I’m letting you know in case any of my readers want to save up and buy me one. No, I wouldn’t be able to accept that. I’ll just start a pool.
Here are some looks in fur to inspire:
Still just trim, but way more chic. DSquared2
A little more trim-Taken for GQ Germany

As the above examples show, fur does make a good trim. But men who want to add more of a statement need more than trim. A full on fur may seem a bit intimidating, but I think the examples below will at least push in one direction or the other as the middle seems a bit…well, you decide.
Dolce & Gabbana with the, “It’s still manly if it looks like only a vest.” look
Gucci- “Somehow it’s still masculine if it looks like I just glued on patches…”
BAM! Full on Fur, baby!
Swoon. I mean, Galliano
Burberry-That’s what I call a fur!
Oh…wait. Does being vegetarian mean that I can’t wear animals? Is it wrong to imply that I want to by wearing
fake faux ones? Morals….
