Most of the time, we feel sorry for dogs that are forced to wear degrading costumes. The Hot Diggity Dog Ketchup and Mustard, Heidi Oktoberfest, and Yoshi Nintendo dog costumes are some that could prompt dogs to voluntarily check themselves into the nearest shelter. Here’s one doggie fashion item that every dog wants to be seen in. Say aloha to the Hawaiian Shirt for Dogs.
Ok, maybe it’s the owner who thinks the shirt is cool. You have to admit that a Hawaiian shirt does score lower on the cruel and unusual scale. The shirt is a true Hawaiian that’s all cotton with coconut shell buttons, and it’s perfect for breezy luaus at the dog park. I can picture Tillman, the skateboarding dog, wearing this shirt and starring in another video on a beach boardwalk.
The Canine Hawaiian Shirt
Made in the Hawaiian islands, this is the genuine aloha shirt that reflects a canine’s carefree, waggish spirit. Long synonymous with summer time leisure, the modern Hawaiian shirt was created in the early 1930s by a Waikiki cloth merchant from leftover kimono fabric. This shirt’s lightweight 100% cotton fabric displays classic Polynesian motifs favored by locals, in contrast to the loud prints found on common aloha wear. Tailored to comfortably fit a canine’s frame, the short sleeve shirt has a square collar and a front placket with genuine coconut shell buttons. Machine wash and dry. Sizes XS-XXL for dogs 8 1/2″-15″ long, as measured from neck to tail. Please see Hammacher.com for complete measuring instructions.
This fantastic Hawaiian Shirt for Dogs is $29.95 at Hammacher Schlemmer, and sizes range from XS to 2XL.
Notice that the dog in the picture is sporting a nice pair of shades? There’s actually a brand called Doggles Eyewear that makes sunglasses especially for dogs.
