Faux Fur Inside Hoods Is Just Tacky, People

Faux Fur Inside Hoods Is Just Tacky, PeopleI am really not a fan of this whole faux fur in the hood trend that never seems to die.  I remember way back in the summer of 2006; I had the displeasure of being dragged into the Abercrombie & Fitch in the US mall we were visiting; and everywhere I could see were these damn hoodies lined with fur.  Soon enough, clone-of-the-clone labels like American Eagle and company were pimping out their own designs, and the fur continued to grow in mall-goer popularity.

Here’s the problem: cheap “fur” wears terribly.  The fact that the cheap “fur” is only warn in and around the hood only exacerbates the problem; this is where it will get the most wearing and rubbing.  Cheap fake fur clumps and flattens over time, and from what I’ve seen it takes nearly no time with these kinds of items.

I implore you, spare yourselves the waste of money and embarrassment that is a fake fur lined hood! If you must have the look, spend the money and get a high quality fur replica piece or get the real thing (which there really is not substitute for).
