Since 1931, York Furrier in Elmhurst offers a complete line of services that will keep your fur and fine outerwear garments looking as luxurious and beautiful as the very day you purchased or inherited them.  A renewable resource, furs are durable, versatile, and can be worn for everyday occasions; they will last a lifetime with the proper maintenance & care.

State-of-the-art equipment and technology, on-premise cleaning services, and storage in climate controlled vaults, is utilized at York Furrier.  Essential repairs, and complete restyling of older garments by York's own knowledgeable craftsmen are offered.

Celebrating it's 80th Anniversary, this award-winning icon of the fur industry insists on continually remaining on the forefront of new technologies and fashion trends.  The York Furrier buyers travel the globe to amass an impressive array of  Designer Creations including Michael Kors, Zandra Rhodes, Zac Posen.  They work with their own manufacturers to create the classically inspired line of York Signature Styles.  And, if one prefers to create their own personal style, then a York craftsman will transform the client's vision of a perfect garment into a custom-made, one-of-a-kind, exclusive piece.  

One of the third generation owners, Kathy Rezny, gave me a tour recently of their beautiful shop, inspired by the chic boutiques in Milan, Italy.  With a wide selection of stylish furs, shearlings, casual jackets, rain coats, cashmere garments, beautiful leather handbags & accessories, there is something here to fit every lifestyle and budget.

During your visit be sure to peruse the 'Bargains Du Jour' sales rack, featuring gorgeous pieces in preparation for Fall.  Feast your eyes on the Anniversary Collection, Zuki Designed Fox and Sheared Beaver Walking Coat with Jewel Detail, or for the Guys:  from the Fine Outerwear Collection, an Ultralight lamb leather jacket.  Both practical and lavish accessories await you, for on the go - or all out glam, York Furrier has it all!

The selection at York Furrier is amazing. Not just winter apparel, they have great accessories! Some of the hippest fashions coming out of New York too. It's well worth the 15 minute trip to Elmhurst.
