PELT PERFECTION Fur wearing thin in spots? Have it seamlessly patched.
When it comes to taking scissors to a garment equivalent in worth to a semester or two at Brown, it behooves you to trust only the best. “We’ve been in business for over 75 years. If you bought a fur coat at Neimans, Bergdorf or Bloomingdale’s and it wore out and you needed skins [to repair it], the coat usually ended up in our store,” said Larry Cowit, who, along with his brother Steve, is the third-generation owner of Henry Cowit, Inc. (cowitfurs.com), the esteemed fur-matching business near New York’s Garment District.
“There used to be 100 fur-matchers in the country. There’s only one left now, and we’re it,” Larry Cowit said. The largest buyers of used furs around, the Cowits have almost 3,000 coats in their inventory—from muskrat to Russian squirrel—some of which are sacrificed to patch up their clients’ furs. Once upon a time, they painstakingly created a fur Swoosh on one gentleman’s Nikes to match his blue iris mink jacket before a New Year’s Eve bash. “With skins, we can match the color of a 10-year-old coat that has oxidized—nobody else can do that like us.”
Add a Touch of Elegance to your Non-Fur Coat
Adding fur to non-fur coats such as wool or cashmere can add a touch of elegance to these garments. Possibly a new fur collar or a pair of mink, fox or even sable cuffs can give you a brand new and exciting design. We have a huge variety of new skins and pre-owned parts to choose from to help spice up your cloth, wool or cashmere garment.
