I have a roots parka thats tres warm faux fur and cost me like 120 bucks...

it has black and has a roots logo on the side arm (that is also black) and well...I like it.

It's also the only Roots product I have ever bought-en
Canada Goose can Canada blow me
$120? Was yours on sale because I'm pretty sure they go for $220 or so. I got my buddy who manages a store to get me one and it ran me $183 after the discount.
This jacket is so warm that I've only needed it a handful of times this winter.

You mean the fact that thousands of people were posting this to their FB profile and railing on Canada Goose a few weeks ago doesn't make it true?

depends on the person. I toured a meat processing plant and saw the kill+bleed out but I went and had a steak lunch about 30 mins later. Didn't faze me in the least.

Meat is murder - tasty, lovely murder. Fur is murder too - comfy warm snuggly murder.

I have seen that vid. Gross...I am assuming there must be a reason they do this, though? Like, does it make for better fur?

would it not be more efficient to kill the racoons first before skinning them? i mean..arent they wriggling around and shit?

maybe the chinese racoon farm owners are just trying to prevent their workers from "scavenging" racoons?

my guess is it would be a lot harder to walk out of your job at the racoon skinning facility with a live racoon down your pants as opposed to a dead one!

There's a great video on YouTube that shows a raccoon being skinned alive at a fur farm in China. It's pretty graphic. Watch that video and it will pretty much turn you off fur.
Racoon dogs actually, closer to a fox than a racoon as we know it.

Doesn't put me off fur but it does put me off country bumpkins worldwide who skin animals that are still alive. Cruel and unnecessary, at least slit the poor buggers' throats FFS.

There are such things as ethically-sourced furs that I have no problem with at all, how is it any different than using the leather really? Question not aimed at you, just a general question to the anti-fur kneejerk.

Also I can't imagine that this skinning alive is the routine method that the PETA people are pushing it to be. Have to wonder at how much of this vid is 'here's $100, go skin a few of these alive for the video'.

It's certainly not beyond the realm of possibility given PETA's track record on 'truth'.

Sorry that wasn't directed at you. I was just using 'you' in general.

Great video!!

I had to pass this on to my sister in law who owns 3 of these jackets and all their other accessories. Thankfully she gets her free as an employee of the Timmins airport.

If your sister works in Timmins she actually needs a warm coat!

I agree. I think out of the 500 people I know who own one, she actually deserves it. Nothing like standing on the runway bringing a plane in when the wind is -50 blowing across the runway on a daily basis. Even though she justifiably needs one, I still ride her ass about it. ;)

the video brings up a good point - all these CG coats must be a real bitch for coat check girls in the GTA clubs. Add to this, on a given night, you might have a quarter million dollars worth of jackets in your check.

you'd have better luck finding a unicorn in downtown toronto than you would finding a club owner who gives even half of a flying fuck about the contents of his coat check.
