Fur, Faux Fur and Faux Faux Fur

I guess what is desired or less desirable changes over time. Some of my friends were surprised at  the (borrowed) fur extravaganza I wore in Sweden (where, however, given the occasion and environment it was the perfect coat!).

The nytimes writes about Real Fur, Masquerading as Faux, and says:
"The Stuart Weitzman ballet flats from Neiman Marcus sported sweet faux fur pom-poms. The Alice and Olivia coat was trimmed with a dark faux fur collar. A Revolve Clothing ad on the Web for a Marc Jacobs coat, which falsely said its hood was made of faux fur. The problem was that the faux fur was, in fact, real fur.

That’s right: it was faux faux fur."
