I'm sure a few do to the theater, philharmonic, church and other such formal occasions. And there's surely a lot of faux fur/ fur trims from what I gathered, but im wondering how common it is to see a woman particularly under 60 in say, a full length mink or the like. The last time i visited nyc in the winter was in 2003 (march) and jan(2001) and was in awe of how many beautiful furs i saw on the subway as well as on the streets. I get the impression it's not like this as much anymore, perhaps due to the economy, trends(some think real fur is matronly or tacky) animal rights influence,etc. However like i said i have not been to nyc in winter for what feels like ages ago so im interested to know the fur trends of those who have been recently or live there, or live in another cosmopolitan city!
