Trend Alert – Easy Fur Coat Options for Men

Unlike womenswear’s relatively static creative development of late, with the exception of fur design and some stylistic expansions, menswear is where the action is.

Designers are thinking outside the box and delivering looks that surprise in their defiance of mainstream conventions and coincidentally re-embrace the lost largess of centuries past; may we present some of the season’s best fur coat options for men.

This season the trend has taken hold and it doesn’t take much to see how quickly fur outerwear is settling into the well-dressed man’s wardrobe. Designers are showcasing fur styles that range from rugged street chic to elegant gent. Today’s take is much more Jet Set meets Wall Street than in-your-face Rapper swagger.
