I just wondered when this will occur. The only thing of prestige that was missing to our four-legged pets is tailoring service. And, luxury launches website VeryFirstTo.com is exclusively offering the world’s first dog tailoring service, courtesy of UK company Doggy Armour. Whether you wish to visit Doggy Armour’s premises, or prefer a home visit (wherever in the world it may be) you can be assured that your precious pooch will not only have an elegant and perfect fitting garment, but one which will provide effective protection (from being savaged by other dogs and from a knife attack).
Doggy Armour is already being tested by police dogs. The coat is made from state of the art military grade materials, providing bite protection, slash resistance and spike defence, all in a jacket weighing from 220 grams. The tough resilience of the coats is thanks to a specialist technique used in the manufacturing process resulting in a fabric with outstanding mechanical qualities. The process was initially conceived and designed for the military where toughness and durability is imperative.
The Tailor-Made Doggy Armour service provides a selection of outer fabrics in 5 colours, however, customers also have the option of providing their own choice of material. This enables owners and their dogs to have matching coats. There is also an option for the coats to be embedded with jewels as well as a bespoke monogram.
Owners can bring their dogs to Doggy Armour’s Essex based premises where fabric will be chosen and measurements taken. The coat is then made, usually within a fortnight, and the client returns for a final fitting where the machinist is on standby for any minor alterations. A Doggy Armour taxi collection and return service is also available.
Alternatively, VeryFirstTo recommends the home tailoring service that is available globally. This supreme bespoke offering consists of an initial consultation with the Doggy Armour tailor who also takes the client’s measurements, and a follow-up fitting where the machinist is also in attendance to make any final adjustments.
Tailor-Made Doggy Armour commences at $215/ £175/ €200 and increases depending upon size of dog. Taxi and home tailoring service costs depend upon location of home.
