Were you sitting around today thinking, “I am an extremely eccentric millionaire, and, also, my ice igloo palace that I live in in July is getting a little chilly?” Who hasn’t, right?
Fortunately, there is a fur coat made entirely out of male chest hair to keep you cozy.
According to The Daily Mail:
The coat, which features over one million strands of male chest hair, took a team of fashion designers over 200 hours to create and carries a hefty price tag of £2,499
That’s $3,280 in case you were wondering. Now, you might also be wondering, igloo chill aside, why anyone would want a coat made out of chest hair. Supposedly it’s because:
The coat was commissioned by milk drink for men, Wing Co., as a protest against the widespread ‘manning-down’ of British men, typified by clean-shaven chests and emasculating fashion.
I remember when we used to just advertise with milk mustaches. That was a simpler time.
I mean, if this is a protest against men not being manly, I would think that men might want to keep some of their manly chest hair on their actual chests, rather than using them for coats. But, I guess these are a strong statement against femininity because nothing says “men being men” like women exposing their bikini clad breasts while swathed in billowing chest hair.
I guess, to be fair, this isn’t really that much weirder than a regular fur coat, and it’s certainly more humane than wearing any kind of animal fur coat. And it’ll keep you really warm in your igloo palace.
I still liked milk mustaches.
