Fancy a shag?

Beyond fashion's rapidly accelerating digital uptake, with four brands streaming their shows live in the first two days of the men's Fall/Winter 2010/2011 runway season, which is currently underway in Milan, a couple of other trends of note. A definite heritage theme, with several houses that are celebrating anniversaries (Ermenegildo Zegna, 100 years; Dolce e Gabbana, 20) delving into their respective roots. The skinny trouser continues to trend, with a firm nod to the spray-on version - aka megging. At Dolce e Gabbana and Emporio Armani, morphing into longjohns. One garment to emerge in multiple collections is the shaggy man's coat or vest. Part glam rock, part Fred Flintsone, it's fashioned from fur, astrakhan, shearling or wool.

these have made me totally crush on males in fur coats. a little bit pimp, a little bit Brian Jones, a lot appealing. So wrong it's right.

I'd totally want to share thought, naturally.

Ahh, f**k! Shag/shearling crap, again! ;)

If these coats/long vests were royal purple, hot pink, forest green, ox blood, turquoise or ochre I might rock one of them pimpdaddy/sophisticated bitch style. But shades of grey, black and camel brown don't do it for me!

I'm interested to see if Etro do a variation of this! :)
