Shearling coat, or rather the piece that together with fur ensures style and warmth during the winter. (This post is written by Lady Fur and welovefur fashion editors)

The shearling coat: symbol of the ’70s, amongst the most sought-after cult outerwear of the moment. Definitely more casual than a sable fur or similar, the technique is also very different, as are the materials.

In English Shearling refers to the short or medium length sheepskin jacket with shaved hair inside. In the last years it has returned to the catwalks of experienced stylists: Acne’s sheepskin or that of Burberry or Maison Margiela are famous, but all brands have gone wild and reinvented it in all colours and shapes.shearling coat selection

Men’s and women’s shearling coats: a seventies love story

But outerwear in leather and fur has been popular since last century:  shearling coats was in fact a must of the’70s and ’80s.

The Shearling is unisex: both men and women wore a shearling, also commonly known as the aviator jacket for shorter and sportier models, like the bomber or leather biker.

shearling coat women 70 How is the shearling coat made?

It takes its name from the fact that it is made from the male sheep, the lamb before shearing.

The external part of the jacket is in general suede, or smooth leather in contrast for some models and inside instead there is the warm fur, shaved for the masculine and sporty models, long-haired for the long feminine ones.

As in fur obviously there are different factors and different models to take into consideration if you want to invest in a beautiful sheepskin for the winter.

Characteristic of the most classic models is certainly the maxi collar and the cuffs that give a glimpse of the inner fur.

The colors of sheepskin? Generally creams and natural colors. Caramel, cappuccino, Sienna, sometimes olive green. (Read below what Lady Fur thinks about Shearling coats) 

Recently stylists have gone wild with vivid colors, contrasting inside and out, metallic, but the real revolution, although it may seem strange, is the black sheepskin.

Yes, black both on the outside and of the hair within.

Vintage shearling coats 

Lately it has been easy to spot many in vintage shops, but when you buy a vintage shearling coat, keep these factors in mind: if the outer leather is stained or scratched, if the hair inside is still in good condition or not. In the case of stains you just have to take it to a dry cleaner’s specialized in leather, but you should know that having them cleaned is not at all cheap, it could end up costing you as much as you paid for it.

For scratches there is obviously nothing you can do.

Keep in mind that vintage sheepskin jackets are more squared and oversized, so they may not flatter your figure.
