I personally wouldn't, I'd stick with the imitation stuff. I'm the same way with fur.

What about a human skin jacket.

That would be cool, I'd wear lots of em, I know some people who would be more productive as jackets.

Alot of the alligators from farms were wild anyways. Farmers are allowed to collect a certain amount of eggs from wild nests and raise them. As I remember the hatchlings that were bred in captivity are released (17)? percent. If I remember correcty.. So it can be tricky to if they really were farmed or were just collected.. Personally, I wouldn't wear a jacket or something like that because Id be truely pissed if something were to happen to it and Id treat it like gold with the money I spent on it.. A waste of time and money.. However I would like a croc hat with it bordered with teefs.. Xain

Oh yea, it would depend on the species of crocodilian and a select few farms.

crocs and gators are on the CITES list, so, in the long run how does killing an animal actually save a species?? these farms claim that they saved crocs and gators from the brink of extinction, but in reality laws were passed to protect these animals from being hunted, all these farms do is condone the killing of these magnificant animals on all levels

I have no problem with farmed animals. I lived on a cattle ranch and noticed farmed animals (domesticated ones at least), are different then wild animals.

People will never stop wearing animals. So I believe the farms were opened in hopes that at least they may purchase skins from animals meant for this, and not poach them. Not sure if this logic is correct or not, but something is helping alligators and crocs make comebacks in small ways.

Personally I find animal print clothing to be out of date, scary looking, and tacky. Especially boots made from snake skin or alligator skin. *shudder*

Alligator skin makes me look fat.

I agree with what Xain said, if the animal was farmed and not collected from the wild, using its skin means we are not wasting part of the killed animal, just like we wear cowskin and lambskin.

I would be pissed if the animal was only killed for its skin, now that's wrong.
