I’m a little picky when it comes to T-shirts — the only ones I feel truly comfortable in are American Apparel cotton tees. So how did I miss that American Apparel has a full line of dog stuff? (We actually featured one of their tees back a couple years ago. Again, duh.) The American Apparel pet line features all your favorite AA hoodies and tees, but designed just for your pooch. In addition, they’ve got sweet denim beds and collars and leashes to complete the collection. Check it all out at American Apparel. (If nothing else, their adorable array of doggie models is sure to brighten your day.)
The following post is brought to you by House of Paw et Bebe. We’re very paw-ticular about our partners and only feature those we think are top dog.
House of Paw et Bebe is the first of its kind: a posh puppy and baby boutique — in one! Their brick-and-mortar store is located in NYC’s Upper East Side, but their impressively curated collection is also available to browse in their online shop (for those of us who can’t make it to the Big Apple). Of course, we couldn’t help but round up some of our favorite products from this one-of-a-kind concept shop — check ‘em out below!
1. Urban Knit Sweater 2. Padded Puffer Vest 3. Cambridge Pet Carrier in Brown Canvas 4. Braided Leather Leash 5. Four-in-One Raspberry Pink Plaid Fleece Hoodie and Vest 6. Hematite Rock & Roll Collar and Leash 7. SoHo Collection Carrier in Mustard 8. Pocket Parka 9. Bling Bling Bling Domed Collar Collection 10. Stripe Harness Vest
It’s cold out there, y’all. Sometimes a pup needs a little extra protection from winter’s chill, and we here in the South know that nothing takes the edge off a frosty morning like a sherpa-lined wool coat — in plaid, of course. Billy Wolf Fine K9 Coatery‘s dog jackets are handmade in the USA from vintage, dead stock fabrics. They’re sophisticated and rootsy at the same time — designer Lyndsey Drago honed her skills at Ralph Lauren and Timberland — and their velcro closures make them easy to put on and remove. And if your pup is already warm enough but just needs to sport a bit of flair? Billy Wolf makes awesome bandanas, too. Check out the complete line at Billy Wolf.

Wrigley wanted me to remind you all, in case you’d forgotten, that it’s hoodie weather! I mean, what’s more appropriate for a day of curling up with your favorite blanket and sleeping the winter away than a colorful and stylish hoodie? Not much, except for maybe a Hot Toddy (but dog’s don’t drink, so there’s that). If your pup could use an extra layer of warmth this winter, you’ll definitely want to check out these cozy Paul Frank hoodies from 26 Bars & a Band!
My husband and I have this running joke that whenever we take a trip anywhere, Dottie wants us to bring her back a T-shirt. (She never gets a T-shirt.) If you are one to treat your pup to the occasional tee, however, you’ll be happy to know that T-shirt purveyor extraordinaire, Threadless, has new graphic hoodies for dogs. And hoodies aren’t all… Threadless has a whole new line of great beds and bowls, too. And like all of Threadless’ goods, they feature designs submitted by members of the Threadless community.
