Don’t think cowboy country -- these richly textured pony hair accessories are more Milanese bourgeois than Wyoming cattle rancher. It was all over the runways for the Fall 2012 menswear collections: a Z Zegna overcoat, a McQueen tunic, even a camouflage Jimmy Choo iPad case. Think of it as a glamorous alternative to velvet and standard leathers, and opt for deep burgundies and bottle greens to match the seasonal spirit.
