How to find a good mink fur coat?
Jan 10, 2017


Step1: Research sellers before you buy. You should communicate with at least five separate fur salons prior to purchasing a coat.

  • Visit each store and compare what you can get for the same amount of money at each.

  • Visit stores other than department stores. Many department store fur salons are run by the same company and have very similar selections and prices as a result. Check out a few independently owned stores, as well.

Step2: Check the tag for the origin of the fur. A quality coat should list where the fur originated from, and the highest quality coats will have fur that originates from certain countries.

  • Look for a mink coat with pelt origins in the USA, Denmark, or Finland. Mink coats from Norway, Sweden, China, Canada, and Russia come next.

  • Search for sable that originated in Russia and lynx pelts that originate from North America.

  • Purchase a fox fur from Finland.

  • Look for a Canadian origin for beaver furs.

Step3: Check the inside of a coat before purchasing it. Most quality furs have an open hem at the bottom of the lining for this purpose.

  • Note how clean the stitches are, and whether or not any fur got caught between the stitches.

  • Check how much leather was used in the let-out process. Lower quality furs have an underside striped with leather, while the highest quality furs have no leather at all. Ask how much leather is included in the coat to create the most accurate assessment.

  • Note the color of any leather used on the underside. If you select an un-dyed coat, the color of the leather should also be natural. Mink, for instance, should naturally have a creamy off-white leather.
