No, I was not mistaken with the topic of the article. And, despite the fact that it is spring outside the window, today I would like to talk about how to choose the right mink coat. After all, right now, at the end of the winter season, you can have time to buy a fur coat for the next season without agiotage and with a good discount!
This item has practically no relation to the quality of the fur, but, nevertheless, it is necessary to decide on the style in advance. So you will save time for yourself and sellers. The rules here are standard – it’s better not to buy long and bulky coats to the floor for short ones, for autolubic women it’s better to have short coats or even vests, for those who don’t like hats, it’s important to have a hood, etc.
1. fur should not fade. Do not hesitate, run your hand over the product, remember it in the palm of your hand. After that, the hands should not remain hairs or fluff.
2. Most products are painted, it gives the product shine and uniform color. But the coloring is not always quality. To check this, swipe the fur with a white handkerchief or a damp napkin (or wet palm). Naturally, there should be no traces of paint on them. By the way, if the seller claims that the fur coat is unpainted, ask him to show on the product the single hairs of gray color, which are present in each animal.
3. You should carefully inspect the entire surface of the product. Fur should be uniform thickness, do not have bald patches. They can be the cause of old age of the animal and the result of contact with its teeth. There should be no wrinkles, their presence indicates that the product has been in stock for too long.
4. Check lining products. By the way, I was very surprised by the fact that its lower part was not sewn to the fur part of the fur coat. It turns out that this is not an accident, but it is necessary so that the buyer can independently assess the quality of the seams and the manufacture of skins. As with any other clothing, there should not be inaccurate seams, protruding threads, traces of glue and basting.
The product should not have a strong smell, especially chemical. Fittings must be of high quality – for hooks this is important, because often many of them can simply escape with meat.
When fitting, you should not feel discomfort. So, some of the products that I measured, I immediately seemed too heavy, even though their length was to mid-thigh. The reason can be both in a rough lining, and in low quality of fur.
It is often useful to look at yourself from the outside, for this you can ask the seller to try on the product.
By the way, if you buy a fur coat in a warm season, do not wear it on a T-shirt, you will wear it in winter with a sweater, which may cause discomfort.
It is useful to know that mink fur is of two types – winter and summer. Obviously, the winter is warmer due to the presence of undercoat. But it is worth the product of it more expensive than the summer. However, if the winters in your region are warm, then paying extra money does not make sense.
My coat is already 7 years old, and in all this time I have never been disappointed in my choice. Of course, the right care and storage matter. As you can see, a similar product is purchased not for one year, and therefore the choice should be approached with the utmost responsibility.
And finally, my favorite rule: If in doubt, do not buy!
