Our Story

It started in the summer of 2014 when we were looking for a festive party shirt for our fur baby,Thomas, to wear to our annual 4th of July barbecue. We looked everywhere but just could not find an outfit that matched his human-like personality or that was made with the quality he deserved.

Scott had the ingenious idea to take matters into our own hands. With Gina’s background in apparel design, we bought some fabric, created a pattern, and made a one-of-a-kind Tropical print button-down shirt for Thomas. We called it his BBQ Shirt — and he quickly became the spotlight of our annual party. Thomas loved getting dressed up, so we started making different shirts for every occasion, and soon enough his wardrobe needed a closet of his own.

Pups took notice — everywhere we went Thomas would get stopped for photos and people would ask where he got his threads. We wholeheartedly love delivering that same joy to our customers as we once had with Thomas, and nowJonesy, who we rescued in May of 2019. Even though Thomas has passed over the rainbow bridge, his legacy will live on through each pup that wears his threads, and in turn, donates to an animal in need.
