Size Chart

Your Dog's Favorite T-Shirt by America's Dog Apparel is a wardrobe staple for any broad-chested dog! It has a lived-in feel and slouchy fit that reminds us of that favorite vintage tee... you know the one.  In the summertime, use this as lightweight barrier between your dog's skin and the sun, biting bugs or burrs... in colder months, it makes the perfect base layer under a coat or sweater and also doubles as a comfy sleep shirt. 

America's Dog Apparel garments were designed for dogs with larger ribcages and shorter spine length and are meant to be worn slouchy! The fit around the upper body makes for easy on/off and we've eliminated slippage by placing the neck seam a little higher than other t-shirts. For the boys, we cut the underside higher but did it without sacrificing undercarriage coverage for the girls. And for maximum comfort and safety, we eliminated drawstrings, buttons, snaps or zippers.  

A great choice for surgery & injury recovery because cotton is breathable and since our tees are cut to fit loose without falling off, air can circulate and fabric doesn't stick to the skin. A lightweight layer can also prevent dogs from licking wounds on the torso, chest and shoulders! 

No hangers, cardboard, tags or plastic packaging means less waste and because the fabric and hoodies are manufactured within 150 miles from our warehouse, our carbon footprint is very small. 


    • soft, breathable cotton fabric
    • fabric made in North Carolina from USA cotton 
    • designed, cut, sewn and dyed in North Carolina in accordance with fair labor standards
    • great for sensitive skin; won't cause rashes
    • works well as a sun and bug protection layer

    Recommended Fit

    This garment is meant to have a slouchy, vintage fit-- kind of like that old favorite sweatshirt you loved in college. Please size up if your dog is at the upper end of the measurement range for the size you're thinking of ordering. 

    A tight garment will push a dog's fur back and forth against the direction of hair growth as they move, which is a feeling that's aversive to most dogs.  (This is why we pet dogs in the direction of hair growth, not against it). Dogs are generally more comfortable in looser-fitting clothing and we want your dogs to be comfortable and happy!

    A slouchy fit around the upper body makes for easy on/off and we've eliminated slippage by placing the neck seam a little higher than other shirts.

    Measurements for each size are listed on the size chart (above size & color options). The best way to get a perfect fit is to visit our measuring page to learn how to take accurate measurements for your dog.

    Meet the Brand

    This is our in-house brand of dog apparel designed for hard-to-fit dogs in 2014 by the founder of Fit for a Pit!  All tees & hoodies are made from 100% USA cotton, which is spun into yarn at a spinning mill in SC. This yarn is then woven into jersey and french terry fabrics especially for us by a weaver in NC, then cut and sewn into garments at a sewing facility in NC. Our hoodies are garment-dyed (dyed after sewing) in North Carolina and slogan tees are printed in Missouri.

    No hangers, cardboard, tags or plastic packaging means less waste. Our patterns are cut in a way that creates less fabric waste. Making small batches of apparel in this manner, and all within a short drive of our HQ near Asheville, helps us keep our carbon footprint small and allows us to have personal relationships with our contractors.

    We believe making comfy clothes for stocky dogs can be done without sending labor overseas and we're doing our part to help create & keep Carolina textile workers employed and paid a fair wage for their craft!

    Perfect Ts

    Star is a burly gurly and the house designed and made Fit for a Pit Ts and Hoodies deliver 100% and more. Star has every color T and Hoodie and wears them all spring fall and winter under her harness for a warm cozy protective fit. Shes on the site modeling them. Perfs. We love that they are 100% cotton and help protect her senstivie skin from environmental contaminants and the effects an excited girl can sustain from pullling on the harness. A++++

    Thank you for the kind words and for sharing gorgeous Star with us! So happy that you both love our in-house line of hoodies & tess!

    Favorite favorite tee!

    Such a great shirt. Perfect for my white pup who lovessss to lay in the sun all day. Protects her from those harmful rays and is still lightweight enough to not make her hot! Fit checked before shipment which was helpful because I did have the wrong size selected!

    She is absolutely beautiful! Thanks for the order and for cute pics of your sweet girl!

    Great fit for a short pit!

    It's so hard to find clothes for our short, chesty guy and this shirt fits great! It's nice and short so the shirt doesn't hang over his butt.

    He is so handsome! Thanks for sharing :)

    Love it!

    Fits our girl perfectly!!


    Spot has somewhat of a skin issue and keeping shirts on him helps out when he throws his temper tantrums and rubs his back on the floor. Plus it also helps he loves wearing shirts too and will even pick out one to wear if given an option. Absolutely loves his green Hoodie!

    fits a little snug, but
