Thanks @880 for liking my comments, I remember this thread! So I finally altered my long sable to a shorter one with an oversized hook, and I have to say I love it!! I gained a bit weight since I worn it last, and now it’s a bit tight, hope it’s not so noticeable. The real life color is def a lot darker because the lighting is so bad in the furrier store. But here it is. I also used some excess skin to make a headband. :smile: thanks for letting me share!
Gorgeous!

Hi Everyone! I absolutely love this thread and have learned so much from it! I came across an opportunity to buy (at a good discount!) from a furrier who creates fur coats and jackets for J Mendel and Basso. Would love your thoughts on: Can you tell if this is real Barguzin sable? Should I buy the short (reversible) jacket or the long coat? The jacket is exactly my size and the coat is 2-3 sizes bigger but can be altered down. Styled it with how I would wear both with a dress and jeans. Thoughts? Which one should I get? 7CD152FA-1F2F-45EC-AC47-3C98A489189B.jpeg B4A1AA82-E37E-493E-9AD3-2DC79F914116.jpeg 4BC06A97-228D-4CA4-966A-4F9CABA65FAB.jpeg B3CAB0EB-2EE7-4240-9997-9299CAD62CC7.jpeg 163A6569-5C86-4554-8BE3-E70889A8CB8A.jpeg 6D70033A-2F54-4B42-A4C5-7453D7B2B63C.jpeg 1CE821CF-C148-400C-B4D1-B01971380C64.jpeg 77B2A29E-5D65-4732-82FF-619C71181D95.jpeg 22EA596F-C3C6-4BA9-A822-9DC6D5577AE6.jpeg

I’m going to jump right in and vote for the longer stroller.
It’s spectacular.
You look great in both and you may feel super comfortable in the shorter jacket which I totally get so if that’s what makes your heart sing then please go for it!
From a purely detached standpoint, the longer version is just IT.
A head turner for sure.

I prefer the longer coat. It’s not too long (if it were ankle length I’d say maybe not). It will be warm for winter. The long coat is stunning and really stands out. However, 2-3 sizes is a lot to alter. I know my furrier has told me not to purchase coats that were way to big on me as the alterations wouldn’t be right. But if you are certain they can fit it to you, I say go for it. Very beautiful.

Love the longer coat. The diagonal styling of the pelts is gorgeous!

Congratulations, I think it suits you perfectly! :ps:
Thank you @papertiger
High praise indeed.
I just wish to share how lovely my local furrier, Giorgios Pappas, is.
After he insisted I take home the sable coat with only half paid, I was so grateful that I wrote him a thank you note and mailed it telling how appreciative I was that he trusted me and found me the perfect coat.
Today, when I dropped in to give him more money toward the balance, he was teary-eyed that I took the time to write a thank you.
I said it important to support the local good guys.
And I got teary as well!
So it’s just imbued with good vibes all around!
Thank you for letting me share.

This brought tears to my eyes.

The coat is beyond beautiful, so glad your experience was too. True luxury!
