Great photos! I think I saw these coats awhile back. They are quite nice!
Too bad my guys already have several hi tech performance coats.... These are sure tempting!!!

Just wanted to post Scudder in his sweater from Royal Fifi. I posted it earlier with Fred wearing it, but it was custom made for Scudder. As you can see, if you measure correctly, the sweaters fit perfectly. The turtleneck has buttons that undo for easy on and off. Just didn't want Chantal to get a bad rep, when her stuff is exquisite

Scudder looks really handsome in his sweater.

I have been reading all these postings and think I know how to measure. Linda, did you add a little or measure a little extra for around and down his body? I like the way it fits him not too tight. Does he seem to mind it being hooked under his tail?

Do you have any (or anyone) have any with the legs? Which do you like better?

Does it button along the top or the under-carriage?
I really like sweaters best because they have more give and seem to fit like a glove - they do not let the cold air in.

Thanks! I agree, he looks so smart in his sweaters and prefers to be warm rather than cold. I can always tell if he is cold, as he curls up and his nose is like ice. Freddie hardly ever wears sweaters, because he runs on the warm side and his nose is always warmer than Scuds and Bella's.

I stood him up with his head slightly up and in a show dog stance, legs slightly back. I held the tape measure right up to wear the head joins the neck. Then I held his tail back a little, and measured right to wear it joins. If you measure a few times, you are likely to get different measurements because of the way they stand or hold their head. Go with the longest measurement. For the chest and neck I didn't add, but I did not squeeze the tape. I just went around gently and gave her that measurement. Scud has a big head so I made sure I did not measure tightly. Keep in mind over time these sweaters do stretch in the neck and chest.

He doesn't even notice he is wearing a sweater. let alone the tail ring. You have to request that if you want that.

I do not like the legs at all. Anything with legs, mat my guys hair. I also think they look better without them.

If you order, please post pictures! I can't wait to get my 3 BRUNO sweaters. I got one in brown with pink stripes, black with light blue stripes and teal with light gray/silver stripes!!

When measuring just use your common sense. Think about wear the sweater will fall on the dog and make that be your measurement. I hope that makes sense. One more thing. Scudder has a large chest so I do measure his chest tighter, because I don't want the waist area to be too big.

Have fun shopping!

You can request either neck buttons or side buttons. I like the buttons to be on the back of the neck. Side is also nice for easy on and off. If you don't specify ask,she will put the buttons exactly as they are shown in the picture.

Here are a couple more helpful pictures. Here you will see the buttons. You can see how much the sweaters stretch over time.

I also give her a turtleneck measurement. So I give her length ( base of neck to tail), neck girth, chest girth, and turtle neck length. I also request buttons on neck and tail strap.
My boys 15 & 16 lbs gets a 4" turtleneck unfolded, 2" folded
Bella 7 lbs gets a 3" turtleneck unfolded, 1.5 folded. She can also do mock turtlenecks.

Linda and I like our sweaters a bit different. I always tell Chantal no sleeves and a short neck. I don't like the turtle necks on my dogs. Well, my dogs don't like them . I just ordered 4 more for Cassie. She has been traveling back and forth from my house to my Mom's (since we kind of share Cassie) with her sweaters. I thought it would be good to have some to keep at both houses.

I measure the dogs (not too snug) and then add a 1/2 inch or so since I like them a bit looser. Seems to work well for us.
