a different sort of fox collar

Or a jackal collar, but that's not as catchy.  This goes a bit outside the usual pet perimeters, but I couldn't resist showing you this find from the Victoria & Albert Museum.  This is a linen coat with a velvet collar embroidered in metal thread, made in Britain circa 1800-1820.  As you might imagine from its lighter, cooler textile and the word HUNT at the end, this was worn while hunting in a hot climate.  I dislike the idea of fox hunts, so I'll hope this coat is so gently worn because all the foxes were too fast, too smart, and just out of sight.
