    Fur collar

    I'm looking at either making myself or getting someone to make a detachable fur collar for my navy pea coat, however do I go with faux fur or a shearling type material?? And what colour with navy? Ted Baker do a green pea coat with like a brown detachable colour and it looks awesome...Thanks

    Interesting idea, would be interested to see how it turns out.

    My first choice would be trying to match as closely to the colour of the coat as possible. Failing that black or brown might work.

    I would think you would need to splash out on the material; cheap fur stuff would look awful. Perhaps try to find a knackered vintage sheepskin jacket that you could salvage the fabric from?

    Post pics of the results!

    I'd try and look for an example of a jacket you like and work from there. I think a variety of colours would work, but that white or navy are your safest bets. Please post pics if you get this collar made!

    I think the standard creamy colour of shearling would look fantastic with it! Pin's idea of getting an old sheepskin coat and cannibalising it, try charity shops maybe?

    I think black would work well.
    I have wanted to get a black fur collar for both my navy Pea Coat and my leather biker jacket. I think that fur collars look dope (for want of a more eloquent phrase)
    Beardogg, can you let me know how it goes? I'd love to know where you managed to pick a collar up from.

    I'm also thinking a Fur Stole might be an easier option to butcher

    That's...so much more logical than buying a whole coat. *looks (appropriately) sheepish*
