I won’t lie, I find dogs in clothes funny. So this couple making denim jackets for pooches have my full attention.
Mel and Matt Westwood have created loads of rocker style denim jackets for dogs. And they’re awesome.
The Australian couple were trying to find a jacket for their English Toy Terrier, but couldn’t find anything that they liked. So made their own.
Matt’s a musician with a massive rock and metal vinyl collection and I’ve been selling vintage clothing for years. We both wear a lot of denim and Matt had a good collection of rock and metal patches so the denim battle jacket was a reflection of our style.
When they first took their dog out wearing his new denim jacket, they got a lot of compliments, which is when the idea to start up their dog clothing company, Pethaus, was born.
The jackets have been doing really well, selling in their hundreds, and start at £40 per jacket.
