Well, despite the fact that they’re a bunch of fringe characters on the far left, PETA or, as we like to call them, PUTAh (People for the Unethical Treatment of Animals & humans), has won.
Polo Ralph Lauren announced it is eliminating fur from all of its apparel and home collections:
We are publicly announcing this decision because the use of fur has been under review internally and we feel that the time is right to take this action.
What’s the difference between fur and the leather (and suede) that Polo Ralph Lauren will continue to use? Nothing. Both cover animals that must be killed to obtain the skins. Hy-Polo-Pocrisy by Ralph Lauren.
Also, watch for less warm fake fur to be used at the same inflated gazillionaire prices Ralph Lauren (real name: Ralph Lipshitz) charges.
As for us little people, we’ll continue wearing leather and eating meat.
