Menswear Dog

Just picked up an amusing little book entitled Menswear Dog Presents the New Classics, Fresh Looks for the Modern Man by David Fung and Yena Kim. The amusing aspect of this is that they have used their Shiba-Inu dog to model all the looks and ensembles they wish to illustrate. While I don't agree with all their recommendations and prescriptions by any means, it is certainly a cute and clever book.

It is interesting how they can button a man's shirt collar around the neck of a small dog like a Shiba-Inu. When my stepson saw the book, he thought I had totally flipped out and was planning to dress our dog in coat and tie. I assured him that that was not my intention nor the point of the book. Curious how differently dogs are built from us. My dog weighs about as much as an average-size Playboy Playmate but has a neck like an NFL lineman. If I wanted to put a dress shirt on him it would have to be a size 22 or 23!

Will the Chinaman create MTO group for his canine friend? I'm guessing he has no friends because they are not to his level of Rubinacci sophistication.
 
I noticed Menswear Dog on Tumblr a while back and thought it was amusing.

The thing that most impressed me about Menswear Dog was how patient the dog must be to put up with being dressed up and photographed on a regular basis!
 
I can remember a winter so cold that we put a jacket on our Bull Mastif. It was kind of like a snow suit and had legs. Just for fun we put on boots and then a balaclava and my wife and I howled at how goofy poor Georgia looked. She hated the get up and our laughing. I've never seen a dog look so put off. We took the gear off and promised her to never do it again.

rambo - I've reported the above post to the Canadian Society For the Prevention Of Cruelty to Animals and Arnathor.

Reminds me of an occasion during my senior year at prep school when several of my friends ran out of my room laughing as I approached it. They were followed by Dotty, the English Setter belonging to one of them. Dotty was wearing my knit sweater and scarf (both of which I still have, by the way), my Woolrich mackinaw and had my cap tied around her head. Dotty was an exceptionally sweet bitch, and I never got a female of any species undressed with more ease.

Forty-odd years later, I had to take my little Tosa bitch, Jessie, to her obedience class for the final examination. It was bitter cold (at least by SoCal standards), so I got a doggie jacket and put it on her. Even though she had never been "dressed" before, she was unfazed by it and graduated first in her class (as her sire had) even though she was the youngest dog in the class. I was very proud of her and still miss her.

During that course, I was walking Jessie to my car when this big, buxom but sexy blonde (the kind Rambo and I like) ran screaming in terror into the street, so fearful of Jessie was she. Jessie only weighed about 40 pounds at that time and had a very sweet, non-threatening demeanor. However, I guess some people are just afraid of dogs, the way many people are of snakes.
