I'd rock the heck out of an otter fur vest like this

I made myself a beaver parka with coyote hood trim about 30 years ago-still toasty warm at 40 below.

Great idea. I wish I had that talent.

A fur in coon would be crazy warm and plenty durable. Especially the heavies we have up here in the great lakes region. Trad fur out clothing typically had two layers: fur out to shed the element's and a fur in inside layer. For our uses nowadays I don't think any of use would have to worry about durability issues in the life we live.

Hats: they don't have to be "trapper" "bomber"" types. No reason that any of the brim/bill type winter hats can't have fur instead of fleece/silk/rayon. Would keep it casual without being "fancy".

A canvas chore coat lined with fur would be cool and casual. Practical and warm.

13 large beaverskins and a strip of coyote.
I carved the buttons from soapstone.
Lining is gold silk.

I made the Parka quite a few years before Canada Goose copied my hood trim.

Its a bit faded after 30 years of use.

You cut that crossways with the critter, correct? I have always had the impression that most (not handmakers) outfits cut along the length. I'm not beholden to either way, but I think that definitely gives some character!

That is A LOT of pelts to make one coat. No wonder they're so expensive! Not my personal cup of tea, but I bet that's warm!

Just finished up putting beaver inside this coyote hat and it made it super warm. Have you ever done one with mushrat liner? Wonder if it would make it as warm? [Linked Image]

For casual wear, especially down south, it would be all trim. If all that fake fur trim that we see today was real fur (and more environmentally responsible) we would have a much better market.

I try to be conscious to buy only real fur trimmed items. I bought fur (ranched) hats and lined mittens for gifts this year.

I bought a Duck Dynasty fur hat one time. I was disappointed that Phil did not use the beaver he hate so much for his line of fur hats. Was a good hat but fake fur If he used real beaver it probably would still have it. Plus if it came off his land he would have a built in market to get rid of his pelts. Louisiana beaver and nutria probably cheaper than fake fur.
