My grandmother had one the fox had a spring in its jaw to snap the mouth onto the tail

Chic! Erm, no

I see that they haven't got a photograph of it being modelled.
Most likely because the model said "Fuck off am I wearing that monstrosity!"

Lordy shock

My gran had a real fox fur stole (as it was called) complete with real fox mush and paws. Probably considered well posh originally but it was basically left as a toy for us grandkids by that time.

Dbro was terrified of it and my cousins used to sneak into his room and tuck it up in his bed. Was great grin

yes, now my mother couldnt get rid of them for love or money, in the end she was in Berlin and sold them there

Looks like Hacker T. Dog from CBBC!

Preciousbane Sat 12-Oct-13 17:11:42

They were real in the 30's though, that looks like a gutted soft toy out of my DS soft toy collection.

DD (age 7) would love that!! I think it is horrible and very unfox like.

wrathnurser Sat 12-Oct-13 17:13:39

It looks more like Spit the Dig than a fox

TeamEdward Sat 12-Oct-13 17:14:11

I remember the dressing up box in my Reception classroom (mid 80's) had a real red fox stole in it. I loved it! The glass eyes fascinated me. And it was so soft!

wrathnurser Sat 12-Oct-13 17:14:28

Ahem! That would be Spit the DOG....damn you fat fingers

Chivetalking Sat 12-Oct-13 17:14:38

Reckon Basil Brush took one for the M&S team grin

IslaValargeone Sat 12-Oct-13 17:16:05

Good lord, I really wasn't expecting it to be quite that bad.

Alibabaandthe40nappies Sat 12-Oct-13 17:17:14

My Mum still has my Grandma's fox stole. It has paws and everything!

changeforthebetter Sat 12-Oct-13 17:17:30

Eww! Old ladies used to wear real ones to mass when I was little (along with black mantillas grin). Who the actual fuck thought this up? Are they on the Absinthe at M&S Design? grin

Chivetalking Sat 12-Oct-13 17:17:53

Fucking hell @ the ebay prices shock

Ponders what happened to my gran's...

Mumof3girlys Sat 12-Oct-13 17:18:02

Am I allowed to swear???

That's F@*KING AWFUL

madammecholet Sat 12-Oct-13 17:18:02

Sniggers at Spit the Dog and Basil Brush. It truly is a thing of pure hideousness.

ICameOnTheJitney Sat 12-Oct-13 17:19:07

It's like they heard that foxes have been popular in prints this year...so they said "Make us a fox scarf!" to their designer and they just...got it SO wrong.
