When plaid goes bad

Dear Editor:

Aspen shoppers are no doubt looking forward to the arrival of J Crew, but compassionate fashionistas should steer clear of Burberry ( “J Crew coming to town; And Burberry, too,” Aug. 27).

While J Crew has joined the growing list of designers and retailers, including Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein, Polo Ralph Lauren, and Ann Taylor, that have fur-free policies, Burberry is still stuck in the Stone Age.

PETA representatives met with Burberry executives to show them what happens to animals in the fur industry, yet the company continues to support this senseless cruelty. Animals raised for their fur spend their entire lives confined to tiny, filthy cages, surrounded by their own waste, before being poisoned, gassed, strangled or electrocuted ” sometimes just for a little piece of trim on a Burberry trench.
