Farewell, Fur Hat!

Farewell, Fur Hat!

Sergei Yolkin

The ushanka, for them not in the know, is the traditional Russian flapped winter fur hat. It’s very popular, so, this may not fly. Supposedly, it’s being replaced by high-tech winterwear. Of course, Yolkin has fun with the stereotype of the poofter fashion designer, even working in the theme of the dropping of footcloths, too. In this cartoon, too, the soldier is in a 1980s style uniform… Yolkin was born in 1962, so, he would’ve done his army service in the ‘80s.

Following the abolition of footcloths, the Russian Army is doing away with the flapped ushanka fur hat for winter wear.
