There are only a few other types of fur accessories in Dallas and San Antonio that are more popular than mink fur coats. In fact, the majority of fur owners are more likely to own something made out of mink than any other type of fur available on the market. However, not only is it highly sought after; it can also be one of the most expensive types of fur apparel to acquire! Whether you’re interested in buying your very first piece of mink apparel or adding a new piece to your collection, you may have caught yourself wondering: “What exactly influences how much a piece of mink fur apparel costs?” Keep reading to learn the answer to this question.
The Color of the Mink
Certain colors of mink fur tend to be not only more sought after than others, but also harder to find and/or produce. This can easily make a piece of mink fur apparel more or less expensive, so if you’re on the lookout for a specific color, you will definitely have to factor the potential price into your budget. Blue Iris, brown and black tend to be the most desired colors and, therefore, the most expensive. Dark brown is sold less often and can be found with a smaller price tag. There are several other different colors that are not quite as popular and are easier to find as well as cheaper. If you are on a budget, you may be well advised to go with the more common colors of mink fur out there.
The Brand of the Mink
As any fur enthusiast knows, your fur coat is an investment, and for some people, making the best investment means buying a fur coat made from one of the best possible brands. NAFA Gold, Saga and Blackglama are all extremely popular. As such, you will find price tags on them that reflect their popularity and often contain many more zeros than most people can afford. The truth of the matter is you can easily find high quality fur coats that aren’t attached to any particular brand. However, if you enjoy the status a particular brand gives off, there’s no harm in treating yourself and purchasing it!
The Quality of the Mink
Almost every fur enthusiast out there is most interested in obtaining a good quality product knowing your fur coat is an investment. This ensures you will get the most for your investment and end up with a piece of fur apparel that is sure to last for quite a while. The higher quality a piece of fur is, the more it will cost. However, we believe it is always worth it to spend more on a higher quality coat rather than simply going for whatever is cheapest.
One of the best ways to spot a high quality fur is to examine the stitching. Ideally, the stitches will be very neat, with nothing caught in between the seams. If the coat seems sloppily made, it definitely isn’t worth buying.
