Well, my pup is only half-Weim, but she's built like one, so I figured I'd see if any Weim owners had the same problem. I'm trying to find a good winter coat/jacket for Lady, but she's so hard to size! She has a 28" girth and a 27" topline, so anything sized just on her girth is too short, and most everything that's long enough is too big around the chest.

Without going for a custom coat, does anybody know some good places to look for unusual size coats? Failing that, does anyone have a custom coat maker they recommend?

I recently purchased a horse style blanket and I love it, its warm and insulated, plus ripstop material and a chest guard.

My weim has a 31" chest and 25" back, I ordered the 24" blanket and it fits him like a glove, and the coat is long enough to cover his 3" tail. It also has a collar that pops, which covers the neck to 4".
The velcro straps can also be moved up and down to adjust to various girth sizes.
Its worth a try:

Just realized that site has the size 24" out of stock, so heres another site:
