You get what you paid for.

The highly-controversial oversized fox fur collar I ordered from China arrived last week. TBH, I don’t know what to call it. Scarf? I dunno. I can’t call it a wrap or a shawl either because it’s too small to be a wrap. Not sure about collar because it’s too big to be a collar. Whatevs.

As I’ve previously mentioned, I got it in black because it’s a classic.

I love it!!! It’s made out of real fox. It’s soft, thick and fluffy. Not super soft though like chinchilla or sable but it’s still soft nonetheless. It’s softer than fake fur, that’s FUR sure.

Delivery was fast and I didn’t pay any duties or taxes of any kind.

The collar itself is very lightweight.

My only gripe is that the material they used on the opposite side of the collar (and the ribbon) feels cheap.

I think it’s nylon or some sort of (very) synthetic fabric. It looks synthetic, it feels synthetic. It’s not very soft to touch, you know?

But then again, you only wear this collar when it’s super cold outside.

I’m definitely gonna have the lining and the ribbon replaced with a much softer fabric.

Overall it’s a good purchase. For the price — US$99.99 + shipping — expecting it to be lined with cashmere, silk or satin is totally out of the question.

Hmmm.. now I wanna  buy it in other colors too. Or maybe buy a few more in black and turn it into some sort a vest or gilet. Haha! Nevertheless, I can’t wait to wear it when I go on a winter holiday in the next few months. Unless someone wants to buy me an all-expenses paid vacation to oh I dunno, Czech Republic or Moscow in the dead of winter, now all I need to do is save.


  1. I just read through all those comments on the post you made when you ordered this. WOW. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but seeing as it was from your readers I was expecting a little less hate.

  2. disappointed bryanboy… why dd you do it??? there’re so many other beautiful things in the world that are far less cruel. Please don’t buy any more!!

  3. That’s Chinese made product for you. Combine something expensive looking with something cheap.
    You know what’s in the news recently about more Chinese products? Drywall. People are getting sick from noxious odors emanating from drywall imported to the U.S. as well as other countries. Enjoy your fur sweets, just discard it if it starts giving you headaches.

  4. Wow, looks cheap, very cheap and prolly is made out of dog’s fur, but if you are happy with it, why not?

  5. C’mon BB, I wanna see modeling pics with this soon!
    And while the ribbon looks pretty shitty I don’t think it will be much labor to change it for a nicer grosgrain silk.

  6. That collar looks absolutely lovely, but I can kind of see what you mean by the inside material looking/feeling a bit cheap. Seems like that’s a small disappointment which does not diminish the fur’s quality one bit. I’m definitely going to take a look at the furrier I go to to see if there is something similar available. I actually like the look of this collar a great deal…don’t see why it’s so controversial.

    You should buy 100 more and make it into a Liberace-style cape!!!

  8. totally out of context, give any retail products from China that have caused serious health problems to the buyers, totally nada!!!

  9. The same time I saw this post, there was a “Protect out forest friends” ad at the top of your homepage. Haha, the irony.

  10. well that sucks about the fabric but it’s still quite beautiful can’t wait to see how you will wear it!

  11. Not sure why you dedicated 2 posts to this cheap looking mess. It does look ugly.

  12. you should know 1 fact. 90% of the retail clothing comes from china. even with the label ‘made in italy’


  13. Im disspointed… Ive seen how they get the fur and its not a pretty sight.

    Im against fur and against you posting this.


    uh ignore the haters bb, they probably have leather jackets, sit their hipocritical bottoms on leather sofas in suede shoes and use make up perfume an eat meat any way..
    the anti-fur arguement is pointless, it just does’nt make sense. If a person hates fur their mother probably has leather shoes…
