With their $250,000 crocodile trench coat, Italian couture house Salvatore Ferragamo has raised reptilian fashion to stratospheric levels. The luxury label, known for using this opulent material, has previously used it on a lesser scale in footwear, luggage and handbags.

This ultra-pricey, double-breasted trench, which must use a good three yards of the reptile skin, is lined with silk, has metal ring enhanced epaulets and wrist strap details.

Just how many crocs gave up the fight for fashion fame?

I think the $250,000 Ferragamo coat, which is available by special order only, is a cross between exotic fashion and an old science-fiction movie, and for more than the price of a house, a wool alternative would keep you just as warm.
