If I remove the fur, are the button holding the fur exposed?
The fur holds with a zipper, not with buttons - so no. :)
The fur on mine zips on and off. When you take it off, there are narrow fabric flaps on either side of the zipper on the hood to cover that half of the zipper.
It's actually a zipper holding the fur on, and it is NOT exposed when you take it off. :)
The fur is held on by a zipper, not by buttons. When I have removed the fur for washing the coat, I haven't noticed the zipper showing.
I bought this coat for my wife for Christmas. She loves it very much. The fur is attached with a zipper, and it is completely concealed when the fur is removed...which is the first thing she did when she got it. Hope this helps.
