Is Monster-core a thing? Maybe it will be now...
Check out this incredibly odd, fiery orange faux fur jacket from late 1960's to 1970's. This wonderfully weird jacket comes in a medium weight synthetic fur with a vivid orange base and 'guard hairs' that graduate to ochre yellow color. And, as if that wasn't enough, the synthetic weave lining (nylon?) comes in a contrasting blue, green, yellow and orange print. The half length sleeve are slightly belled, which echoes the jacket's overall silhouette, with its slightly belled shape. The center front opening is a nylon separating zipper, and there are two pockets at either side of waist. The overall condition is excellent to very good, because the texture of the faux fur has frizzed out in some areas (this is most likely due to being exposed to steam, DO NOT steam or expose this jacket to steam of any kind). I did a thorough wash and tried all my little *tricks* to get the fur back to normal, but this is the best I could do. The zipper moves fairly smoothly, as long as you don't catch the fur in it, however, the separating mechanism can be a little finicky. The main label reads 'John Paul Gobble for Adventure' while the secondary label reads 'a deep pile fabric by Borg'.
