Facing firsthand the challenges of finding dog clothes that met the needs of their beloved whippet, Bruce, the founders of BASTARDS Dog Clothes put their 10+ years of industrial design experience and fashion forward perspective to work creating the most technologically advanced dog clothes available. BASTARDS’ feature-first dog clothes are carefully crafted to accommodate the different body types and lifestyles of all dog breeds, from the couch potatoes to the speedsters like Bruce. “Our thought was, if big sportswear companies are investing millions in developing sportswear for people who run 10km per hour, why isn’t anyone investing in our best friends who can run up to 70km per hour?” explains the team. “Instead of millions, we invested a lot of passion and knowledge and took the time to observe our dog and the way he moves.”
In doing so, BASTARDS created a line of high-tech dog clothes that deliver ergonomic performance and a modern, industrial look that make your dog the coolest dog in the world. Find BASTARDS’ expertly crafted dog clothes and accessories in the Design Milk Shop and read on to discover our favorites.
Chill Spot dog bed
A plush, soft dog bed designed to be easily moved around the house, the Chill Spot Dog Bed is sure to be your dog’s new favorite hangout spot. This ultra-soft dog bed is handmade from luxurious black velvet and gives a modern, luxurious look to your interior. In fact, the filling is deliberately made with recycled foam and leftovers from other BASTARDS designs! Fluff it up for extra coziness or wrap it up for a sturdier curling spot for your pup. Dog parents will also appreciate that the Chill Spot cover is machine washable for added convenience.
BASTARDS Dog Leash
A minimalist, modern dog leash with bold industrial elements, the BASTARDS dog leash is a unique dog walking accessory. Made from aramid – a resilient material that can withstand 2.5 tons of force and is also used to make body armor – the strap keeps even the most pushy hikers comfortably and safely within reach. As well as delivering a cool visual impact, the revolutionary KONG Frog clip has an automatic clamping system that ensures it never comes off your dog’s collar unless intentionally opened on both anchor points.
BASTARDS Dog Collar
The BASTARDS dog collar is made of high quality black leather in a wide cut for a comfortable fit and has a minimalist design that allows the robust hardware to do the talking. The collar closure, a GT Cobra® buckle, is one of the strongest load-bearing buckles available, and has a quick-release mechanism that only releases when you want it to, so you never have to worry about it clicking or coming loose if your dog sees a squirrel or gets the sudden urge to pull. It even has a 3D printed belt buckle that allows you to adjust the length as needed to get the perfect fit.
Black slim fit raincoat
Thanks to the longer silhouette and lightweight waterproof material with a matte, waxy finish – the BASTARDS Slim Fit Raincoat has been carefully designed to keep all dog breeds dry during walks on rainy days. Handmade to order with comfort and performance in mind, the jacket wraps easily around your dog’s body, eliminating the need to wriggle over his head. The magnetic closure, hook and loop adjustable hood and double zip for your dog’s leash or harness all work together to simplify rainy walks so you and your pup can walk with confidence. For a roomier fit, check out their Fat Fit cut and find the jacket in a classic yellow colorway.
