    I've got something similar from Firetrap. About the warmest thing you could ever wear.

    Nasty nas in your area, about to cause mass hysteria.

    There's one very similar in Topman, my friend tried it on when we went shopping.

    I hope you mean fish fur (fake fur) and not fur from a poor, previously hairy animal

    What those poor poor animals that 95% of the population eat everyday?

    Get fur if you want fur, you won't for £50 though. I have a knee-length coat made from brown bear fur, incredibly warm but I don't see why you'd need one in England.

    Judging by the picture, he doesn't mean a real fur coat at all - that's just a hoody with a faux fur lining.

    I was all disappointed when I saw the pic!

    Have you ever seen how an animal gets killed for its fur? And bears don't quite grow on trees do they...
    It's not good to kill any animal but at least they breed cows and all that. But WILD animals? Come on.

    the same ones. I understand it if there is a need for it i.e. food/clothing in a harsh environment, but just for fashion seems silly to me

    Are you a vegan? If so, fair enough, but if not, that's a bit hypocritical.

    lol - you won't get a real fur coat for £200. Try adding a couple 0s.

    I think breeding an animal specificly for something is worst because the animal never experiences any freedom, you could argue that you cant miss what you've never had, but still, when you can see past the fence but not get there I imagine it to be pretty nasty

    I'm not, and it is a little, but I did say in the message "I understand it if there is a need for it i.e. food/clothing in a harsh environment" (note the food bit)

    I couldn't be vegan, I like dairy products too much, and I wouldn't get most of the necessary nutrients easily

    Is there a need for it, really? I don't see vegans dropping dead. I eat meat cos I like it, but is there really a NEED for it when vegans manage fine?

    You can easily, just go to somewhere like Camden market. There are loads of vintage furs (60's and 70's) for about £20, because real fur isnt very popular these days.

    Guuys wooah. Chill. Tis fake fur. If you actually bother looking on the website all the £200 ish one's are fake, I don't think A+F even do real.

    Get ya facts right before you start bashing OP.

    However if OP was after real fur then I would have to direct them to Harrods. Not in Harrods but the boards outside which show the merciless killing of animals.

    Point of real fur?

    Um
