If eliminating fur from your wardrobe is the sartorial equivalent of giving up red meat, then perhaps ridding a closet of leather is comparable with going vegan. One requires only a minor stylistic shift; the other forces a person to swear off near-entire categories of apparel and accessories. Leather is ubiquitous, and difficult to avoid, particularly once a shopper reaches a certain echelon of spending.
