I spent most of last week in downtown Chicago at a conference that they say maybe maxed out around 8,000 people attending. Chicago may have been a bit unseasonably cool last week, with most of the days in the 40s and of course some wind. Probably about 5-10% of the folks attending were Chinese, many of them younger ones attending universities. Many must have looked at the weather forecasts and decided to bring their winter coats. I saw about a half dozen coyote trimmed ones (no pale colors. mostly the typical tawny variant) and a couple of coon trimmed heavier coats. I had not seen coon trimmed garments before. I saw some other fur garments but it was the Chinese kids that had the most on. Nice to see the end product of trapper's efforts in real life!! I wish there was more...

Good deal. The Chinese love the fur for sure. If only we could get young Americans and Canadians to embrace fur as highly we would be in great shape lol
