Who knew a hound could teach us anything about style outside of the dog-collar?

Menswear Dog might look like a pooch in human clothing but as a devotee of dressing up he does indeed offer up some sound fashion and style advice.

The New Classics is a style guide written by the savvy owners of Bodhi, a four-year-old Shiba Inu.

They are David Fung and Yena Kim, who write a hugely popular style blog Menswear Dog. It started out as a parody but is now big sticks in the New York fashion world. And yes, it’s basically about them dressing up their pet in posh gear.

In the book this groomed hound sets the style standards for key fashion moments so you know what’s what for key occasions from weekend getaways to black tie events, summer weddings to globetrotter essentials. Weirdly, the fashion bit is actually quite concise and sensible when it comes to making a wardrobe work for a hapless two-legged model.

On the right, check out Menswear Dog’s take on mariner must-buys for those of you setting sail this summer….
