What do you think of this fur editorial in Vogue Hommes International?
Personally, I love it, first I love the photos - it's very game of thrones - and also I have no issues with fur. It's been part of our way of living for the past 500,000 years or so.
If our world was a happy (miserable for me) vegan world where animals were only raised as loving companions and we would not kill a single soul around the planet, we won't be fishing or hunting either but only grow delicious veggies and we would not cut a single tree to protect wild life's habitat, then of course fur would be a scandal.
I do know that our politically-correct-bi-polar society thinks it is OK to kill a cow to make burgers, shoes bags and jackets ... but because of its cost, fur is consider a luxury, so are leather bags and jackets and shoes if you ask me. Luxury = elitists, elitists = not everyone, not everyone = unfair, unfair = rage and there you have it.
That being said I totally respect people against fur and I would gladly listen to what they have to say if they have not ate a piece of meat - like ever - and also if they can assure me that their entire life's actions did not affect the life of a single soul, also they would have to wear "natural fibers" from head to toe as I do not believe that synthetic is actually better for our planet. Polyester (made from esters of dihydric alcohol and terpthalic acid), Acrylic (may cause cancer) Nylon (made from petroleum and is often given a permanent chemical finish that can be harmful) and should I mention that "natural fibers" undergo significant processing that often involves Detergents, Petrochemical dyes, Chemical fabric softeners etc etc ...

If you cannot deal with the vision of fur, then this one below by Burberry is pure Mohair, unless of course you are agaisnt animal's shaving (thankfully the Angora Goat used for this image was less armed than the models who probably got waxed).
In fact that is the only thing I do not like about this shoot. It would have been even better with some hairy and bearded models but I get the concept of 'the smooth predators'.
