Rimmer wearing the yak fur coat.

The yak fur coat is a piece of clothing in Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency.


It was a big white furry coat, owned by Lux Dujour, who claimed it was made from yak fur by an artisan in Tibet and "meant to symbolize the endless cycle of the universe". After Lux's death, Gordon Rimmer held onto the coat.[1]

Years later (on Day 5 of the Spring case), Rimmer showed the coat to Sammy, to lure her with the promise of information about Lux. They went to the Animal Transfer Unit, where Rimmer put on the coat before killing Sammy.[1]

The next day Rimmer threw his Lux Dujour merchandise into a dumpster at the ATU, but changed his mind on the coat and decided to keep it.[2]

Rimmer wore the coat when interrogating the captured Dirk Gently and Todd Brotzman at the ATU. In the ensuing scuffle, Todd acquired the coat while fighting Rimmer, and wore it while time travelling to the past.[3]

Todd wore the coat while in the past. At some point after leaving the Perryman Grand Hotel Todd took off the coat and it was left behind when Todd and Dirk returned to the future.[4]
