Milgi Whippet Coats - Size Changes

Milgi Whippet Coats - Size ChangesHope you are having a wonderful Easter break and enjoying this beautiful weather.

Since we started out in 2012, we’ve made continual small changes to our range, tweaking as we’ve gone along to reflect customer demand. This has led to some changes in the cut of our larger size coats for instance.

However, the feedback we’ve received and our sales figures have led us to a more fundamental change in our sizing policy.

Our main range will be on sale in sizes 22” to 32”. The 32” size is a new addition, as we were regularly getting asked to make these as bespoke items. This will now be available as a standard part of our range in all our fleeces, raincoats and walking out coats for greyhounds and lurchers.

Our bandanas will continue to be available in two sizes – greyhound and whippet. Just as a reminder, the greyhound size fits up to a 17” neck and the whippet size fits up to 13” neck.

We are shortly going to introduce a separate and dedicated whippet coat line. The feedback from our whippet customers at the moment is that although our smaller sizes are great for smaller whippet crosses, lurchers and similar, many pure bred whippets are finding the coats are too big. We’ve listened and think that our whippet customers deserve a dedicated line, with measurements and cut tailored more closely to your needs. Initially this will be available in a limited range of fleeces and raincoats as stock items though we’ll continue to be able to make up anything on a bespoke basis.

The new whippet coats will be available in sizes 18”, 20” and 22”, and if you have a whippet we need your help in making these coats fit perfectly. We’re looking for a couple of whippets in each of these sizes who’d be willing to act as a model. All you need to do is supply your measurements, and we’ll send you a template coat for you to comment on the fit. Taking a picture would be also be very useful for us, and giving us your comments. As a thank you to each of our models, every model will receive their choice of any coat from our range made to their specific measurements plus a bandana of your choice.

So, if you have a whippet and would be willing to help us, just get in touch with us via email – we’ll explain briefly what measurements we need (nothing complicated, don’t worry) and sort out a few other details. We can even send you a free tape measure if you need one. Please get in touch with us before Friday of this week – that’s the 10th of April 2015.

With your help, we’d like to ensure we have the best fitting whippet coats on the market. Thank you in advance for all your help.

PS: We still have some whippet and lurcher coats available in smaller sizes in our “traditional” cut on the website in sizes 18", 20" and 22".
