i think this is the answer to the rough economy...
with the fur inside or just on the collar, the whole thing is more understated...

the whole understated luxury thing is important to retailers during a difficult economy..
many people still have money to spend but don't want to draw attention/jealousy...
we'll see more and more of this sort of thing...

luxury in a less obvious way...

Cause I'm pretty sure I got that jacket from Forever 21, and they don't usually sell much stuff that isn't a trend at the moment (or trying to be).

Anyway, I quite like the sleeves and detailing on the jacket Hanne is wearing and on the jackets in the runway pictures below that.
No, you're right. I'd completely forgotten about it until your post, but I bought a similar men's coat from Old Navy a few years ago as well.

I can't tell if I genuinely like the Michael Bastian coat, or if it's a case of the model looking so good that he's making the clothes look better by association.

Take into account it's been a very cold winter, as well.

aren't these basically stylized versions of bomber jackets and flight jackets?

Does anyone know anything about the different types of the pile? Like is it how old the sheep or lamb is or is just because of different types of species?

For example, I know the really long curly kind is a mongolian something-or-other, but what about the other types? Some look almost like fur and others are very short and curly. Just curiosity.

I have a coat and the collar is the furry type of shearling in a chestnut color and I always wondered b/c I never saw a sheep that looks like that in texture or color. I guess it could be dyed but it doesn't seem like it is.

Also random admission: I always though shearling was made from taking the fleece off the animal by shearing. I only just recently learned that it is also a pelt made with the whole skin like leather and fur is made. I don't mind that much but it isn't as animal-friendly as I thought.

You know it's officially a trend when Burberry includes it in every single look of their show.
