Of all the clothing purchases made in a lifetime nothing lasts as long or continues to look as good as a well-kept
fur. A mink coat can last twenty years with good
care. As fashion styles change with the times…
so can a fur garment. Not only is fur a renewable
resource, it is an amazingly durable fabric that
can be reworked over and over again to match every
season of life.
If your fur seems outdated, a minor or complete
remodel is an excellent alternative to letting it
hang in your closet unworn. A remodel can consist
of minor changes such as adding fashion buttons,
changing the collar to an updated style or changing
the cuffs to something that better suits your taste.
A fur in good condition can be taken apart and reworked
into a whole new pattern. Our master furrier can
insert pelts to add more sweep or remove pelts to
give it a narrow modern design. Sleeves can be narrowed
or widened or the mid-section can be shaped for
a more fitted look to accentuate your figure. Often
times a fur that seems over the hill can be rescued.
The mink stole inherited from a Great Aunt that
you can't bear to throw out can be turned into a
keepsake teddy bear. You may want to consider using
your garment as the fur lining in a rain coat so
that it may continue to shield you from the cold.
Some examples of the possibilities:
Shear your long-hair coat for a whole new look.
Turn a full-length coat into a high-fashion jacket or bolero.
Turn a coat into a fitted vest and use the left over material to trim denim or leather pants.
Turn a fur garment into teddy bears, earmuffs, or throw pillows.
Use the fur from a garment to add a collar and cuffs to a sweater that you provide.
Use the fur from your old fur jacket or coat to line a rain or trench coat which you provide.
The possibilities are endless, limited only by
