Re: TSV dealbreaker!

Wonder how many Faux they had to kill to get enough to make that many collars?

What are you talking about?  It's faux fur.

@Luvmycats   ...it's faux (fake) fur.

Yeah, the collar's faux fur, but for me the big deal breaker is the stuffing (70% down, 30% feathers) because I have allergies and I'm sneezy around down comforters and pillows.  I'd probably be the same way with this coat.  The other deal breaker for me is the logo on the sleeve.

But aren't faux off the endangered list now?

 

Someone once told me they were getting "foxwood" blinds for their house.  I'm thinking I had never heard of foxwood. Yep, turns out it was "faux" wood blinds . . .

@wildcat fan  That is why I don't like that coat...

 

I'm glad I got the Susan Graver puffer coat a few weeks ago in black. The only down side to it though is it not having a 2 way zipper, but otherwise I really like it.

The feathers and down are not for me because of ethical reasons similar to those for real fur. I just bought a jacket that has recycled plastic water bottle filling...yes that's right...water bottle filling....awesomeness!
