Company creates fur coat made of men’s chest hair
What’s fashion-forward and what is simply bizarre?
We’ve seen a number of peculiar items walking down catwalks and red carpets (who can forget Bjork’s swan gown or Lady Gaga’s meat dress?) but this is the strangest thing we’ve seen in a while.
A company has revealed a fur coat made entirely from male chest hair.
According to the Daily Mail, the coat was commissioned by milk drink for men, Wing Co., as a protest against the emasculation of British men.
It seems British men are fed up with shaving chest hair to seem attractive — so instead they shave it for fashion.
The coat features more than one million strands of male chest hair, and took fashion designers more than 200 hours to create. The extensive labor is reflected in the hefty price tag. If you want to wear this coat, dig deep as it costs about $3,860.
What’s ironic is that the model sporting the chest hair coat also has a shaved chest. We can’t help but wonder if he donated his chest hair to the cause of fighting emasculation.
