These pup-style collars are cute as hell on boys, girls, and everyone in between! Combining clean, sturdy construction with a casual DIY street-fashion vibe, they’re perfect as street-wear, club-wear, or play-wear.
The strap is made from industrial polypropylene webbing, with a decorative cotton herringbone strip, and lined with a reinforced rip-stop fabric.
The hardware is mostly steel (see below for details) and comes with either a black finish or a nickel (i.e. silvery) finish.
The collars come in three standard sizes - which are adjustable within a range of 3 inches - and feature a nice thick D-ring to which a leash can easily be attached (note: the D-ring is fixed in place and sits right next to the buckle). I’ve included a sizing chart as one of the images.
Custom sizing is also available at no extra charge. Simply select “CUSTOM” from the size options and enter your neck measurement in the space provided below. Remember to measure around your neck at the height you want your collar to sit, and as tightly as you want your collar to be.
The rivets, eyelets and D-ring are steel.
My supplier doesn’t have detailed info on what the buckles are made from, but I’ve run some tests and I’m fairly sure they’re die-cast zinc. The prong of the buckle is steel (which is normal for zinc-cast buckles).
The black finish is applied via powder-coating* and the nickel finish via standard electroplating. Both finishes are applied industrially by the manufacturer.
*Note: “Powder-coating” takes its name from the process used and does NOT mean the coating is actually powdery! Look it up if you’re curious, but trust me the finish is tough and durable! Most metal you see around that looks painted is done using this process.
