Fishtail Parka Real Fur & Faux Fur Hoods......
PLEASE READ!! Due to crazy demand we have removed the option for real fur hood orders. We will catch up with the backlog and then update the payment buttons accordingly. We do not wish to let customers down who have already ordered real fur hoods as Christmas presents. Thank you for your understanding.
One of our most popular products is the M-65 hood fully re-trimmed with real fur. The M-65 Fishtail Mod Parka takes on a whole new life and look with a professionally fitted real fur hood.
Please Note: Due to customer demand, we have decided to offer a parka hood re-trimming service again. Therefore, please send us your existing parka hood to be re-trimmed with real fur. Please note the wire is removed during the re-trimming process as it makes the process easier and the hood sits better on the shoulders without the wire.
The real fur we use to re-trim our hoods is raccoon fur. We only use brand new pristine raccoon fur of the highest quality. The fur is full, long and dense and completely transforms a parka coat.
Fur Hood Re-trimming Process
- The fur for each hood comes from the same fur plate to ensure consistency with fur quality and different shades of colours.
- Raccoon fur is often black tipped at the ends.
- An animal is not one consistent colour throughout it's body hair so please do not expect us to work miracles :)
- The M65 hoods are very big and require a lot of fur, 42 inches in length to be precise. Therefore, it is almost always necessary for there to be one join when producing the fur strip. However, this is not noticeable due to the expertise of our seamstress who cuts the fur in a specific way.
- The fur strip is cut from the pelt and the edge of the pelt is then stitched into place as per the synthetic strip which was removed. Please see the two photo's shown below.
Choose Width Of Fur Trim
As standard the fur trim width is 1.5 inch. You can if you wish add an extra inch for £50. We understand that big fur is currently very fashionable and that some customers would prefer their hood to have what we term 'massive fur' :) The photo below is the standard 1.5 inch fur trim so you get the idea of just how big a 2.5 inch width of fur would look. The prices on the payment buttons are automatically set for a 1.5 inch fur strip. Please email us if you would like to add the extra inch for an additional £50 at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Another M65 raccoon fur hood. As you see the colours can vary.
With some modern hoods the edge of the pelt is concealed underneath material because a company will manufacture the hood from scratch with this in mind. As the parka hoods we sell are military issue, it is not possible to do so. Also, these military issue parka hoods would take a full day just to unpick due to the amount of stitching.
Which option is best for you?

Turn Around Time.
When simply buying a real fur or faux fur hood, expect 2-3 days from payment being made for your hood to arrive on UK Orders, 7-10 days on EU orders and 10-21 Days on Worldwide.
Note: ALL hoods are unwired during the re-furring process, this both makes the job less timely and hence more cost effective for you and also ensures the hood hangs and looks better.
