is it just me? faux fur

My relationship with fur and faux fur started with a rabbit fur denim jacket that I wore in kindergarten. Mind you, the jacket was reversible, so there was either a fur collar when the denim was showing, or full brown rabbit fur when it was turned inside out.  If that description sounds like a lot, trust me it was -- and consequentially, I didn't love having to wear it.  Fast forward to a few decades later and here I am writing a blog post about my new affinity towards faux fur coats.

I think because fur is considered a women's or pimp fashion moment, people are scared to see how it can work in everyday menswear.  But let me just say, I've been on Ebay and I've been seeing some enticing options, so don't be surprised if I hit you with the faux mink pretty soon. 

But what do you think?!  Do you think this a trend that everyone can and should take full advantage of is it just me?
