Do you long to stay warm and chic but feel that you might be limited by your elegant long body and sweet stumpy legs?
Calling all Lowriders! City Sausage and House of Harry Nicole have collaborated in perfecting winter style and comfort for Dachshunds everywhere.
Geoffrey Wood-Borough is a dream Muse, with his mix-matching eyes, his dapple grey fur and his distinct strut. There is something in his portrait that whispers ‘Bowie’, and a glint in his eye that says “Who’s a good boy?”.
We’ve wanted to make for a dachshund or mini dachshund jacket before. For some time now, we have understood the gap in the dog fashion market for this option.The ergonomics is key,snug but not tight, each of our garments is hand cut and crafted to the measurements of each sausage, so there are no ‘crop jacket’ or ‘bolero’ disasters. Before measuring, we discuss your dogs requirements in terms of style, aesthetics and practicality. This includes personality, colour, texture and finish
For Geoffrey, we hand picked a rare grey shearling that matches his tones. The waterproof vintage nappa finish was a great choice for him, being that he enjoys getting his paws muddy and is happy to run around in all weather. The ultimate personalisation came in the form of a thick hyde leather patch being hand-engraved with his Instagram handle ‘City_ Sausage’.
As with all of our bespoke pieces, we are happy to keep working on an piece until the customer is completely happy. For Geoffrey, we kept his owners Ailsa and Ben informed at every stage of sourcing and cutting, but the job was completed in one appointment and then the final fitting. We are able to work remotely and naturally, our offer for free future alterations should Geoffrey bulk up or damage the jackets is in place. We fully expect each shearling piece to last year after year.
What next? We had a deadline to work to;The London Lowriders dog walk on 10th December in Greenwich Park. A glorious day when thousands of lowriding dachshunds meet. Geoffrey enjoyed the snowfall with his fellow riders and bespoke jacket. The dapper City Sausage is currently adventuring through Europe, he was last spotted wearing his bespoke shearling jacket in Milan. To follow his journey follow @city_sausage.
