Fox Fur Advert, 1938
Ugh. Now this is one thing I don’t get at all. Mink coats, well, that’s one thing – I don’t think they look nice, quite apart from the skinning of a huge number of minks for each coat. But at least you’re not walking round with a whole gang of little mink heads staring at you all day.
The classic fox fur is just an entire fox without its stuffing – tail, bum and head and all draped round you, in a hideous “Silence of the Foxes” kind of way. Is that just one fox? It looks enormous.
I bet it smells in the rain too.
