MONDAY, OCTOBER 17, 1049 Fur Coat, Prices Headed for Drop Costs, Profits Fall More Material In New Styles WILD SUNK— $1800 less Kpsic Kitiartl XEA I'aslilon Filllor NEW YORK —IKEA)— Biggest news In fur coats is that they're 18 to 33 per cent cheaper than they were last fall. The cut is due partially to a price-drop In raw skins and partially to Hie furrier's willingness 10 take less profit. "We have to take less in order to sell fur coats," says one industry spokemim. Another says that by increasing the volume of sales —his firm is geared for a 25 per cent volume increase—manufacturers can make up for the loss of profit. Because of price adjustments, one manufacturer contends that this fall's fur values match those of 1935, a year of low-cost furs, NIJTBA—S300 less tax-free prices and stable dollars. But 19*9 -°<.'r coat values offer somedii/if,' uhich tliofi" of 1935 didn't, according to furriers. That something : s much more material. One -laims that as much as 40 per cent more skins go into the 1949 coat's sweepter skirt, taller collar, fuller .sleeves, bigger cuffs, ami sometimes giant-sized patch pockets. This • generous use. of skins shows lip this fall in many full- length coat.s with tall collars, enor- .mous bell-shaped sleeves and wide flaring cuffs that add more fur to the extravagant display. One coat of choice wild niitik, which makes such high-style use of extra skins, sells for $1800 less than Five Methodist Ministers Named In Pemiscot Co.
