These things.

Do you think Russian glam or do they look twattish over here?

Glam with the right coat and boots. And when it's cold enough!

Ahh reminds me of my Nan. Probably not what you want to hear!

Wouldn't wear one myself.

I do think it depends on how trendy you are. Mum with anorak on school run with cossack is a no no. Trendy art/fashion student type could get away with it.

Love them Have had one for years and it is very flattering with simple clothes.

I think they can look awesome, as long as you don't go too far with the "cossack" theme

I've got one. (present from DD last Christmas.)

It has to be properly cold to wear it. -5 was nothing like cold enough, I had a very sweaty head.

they make your head look big, don't they?

I think they are ok, would have to be with a streamlined outfit otherwise you'd end up looking bitsy and chunky I think

I love them but unfortunately they don't suit me. They can look fab with the right outfit.

I have two vintage sheepskin ones; one black, one cream. I love them.
