Thank you for your quick response. I really, really wanted to wear it but I was a bit unsure....and really am not sure how I personally feel about fur. It is beautiful and feels marvelous...but I do know how opposed some people are. This is a terrific vintage coat. I just wanted an honest answer without the condemnation of those opposed to fur, leather, meat etc! Again, thanks so much! (...and btw way I do not eat beef or pork, but certainly wear leather shoes and belts). Thanks and peace to all.

My wife does it and has season tickets-- if it is weather appropriate. but that said there will be some who live here who will think that you should be drawn and quartered for such an act and at least you recognize it is controversial.

Also note that there is a coat check at the Met (which is a good idea, as it gives you more room in your seat) -- and you will see lots of other furs being checked.

The best time to wear it. You won't regret it specially if it turns into a cold winter, which I am now fearing.

Wear it and love it. In cold weather there is nothing warmer than a fur. Ignore people who give you grief in their leather shoes. Have fun and be elegant!

My wife wears hers all the time in the city and has never had a problem. I think you will see a lot of people wearing minks there too.
