Fur hat or earmuffs?

  Fur hat or  earmuffs?

I like fur hats  same as earmuffs. And I really have enjoyed Marc
Jacobs new hats proposure at New York Fashion Week. Have a look here:

Marc Jacobs Fall/Winter2012/13 Show at New York Fashion Week NYFW

 Searching on the web more about the origin of  earmuffs Iโ€™ve found an intresting story about his inventator . Thougt youโ€™ll be curious to find out more about.  Enjoy:
โ€œChester
Greenwood was born in Farmington, Maine in 1858. He invented earmuffs at the
age of 15 (1873). While testing a new pair of ice skates, he grew frustrated at
trying to protect his ears from the bitter cold. After wrapping his head in a
scarf, which was too bulky and itchy, he made two ear-shaped loops from wire
and asked his grandmother to sew fur on them. He patented an improved model
with a steel band which held them in place and with Greenwood’s Champion Ear
Protectors, he established Greenwood’s Ear Protector Factory. He made a fortune
supplying Ear Protectors to U.S. soldiers during World War I. He went on to
patent more many other inventions. In 1977, Maine’s legislature declared
December 21 “Chester Greenwood Day” to honor a native son and his
contribution to cold weather protection. Farmington Maine is now the Earmuff
Capital of the World. There is a parade that celebrates Chester’s birthday the
first Saturday in December, with local police cruisers in the parade decorated
as giant earmuffs.โ€ (info from http://inventors.about.com/library/inventors/blgreenwood.htm)
