Service dogs are a necessity for those who need them. Emotional support dogs are bullsh*t. Everyone knows you went online, paid a fee and printed a bogus certificate so that you can take your dog to the grocery store, on transit and to restaurants.

If you can’t make it through a fast-casual lunch without a psychological aid, you probably need more help than a Lhasa Apso can ever provide. Rather than make fellow customers suffer an allergic reaction to your precious pooch when all they want is to enjoy a nice meal, consider carrying the Tricolor Floral Outline Hector Tote by Thom Browne.

Thom Browne Tricolor Floral Outline Hector Tote

Crafted from floral print pebbled leather into the silhouette of a Wienerschnitzel, this top handle tote brings some bark to your Sunday brunch style. Carry it as pictured with plaid shorts and a preppy blazer for a look that’s clean, edgy, and fresh. Or buy it for a pooch-loving friend for a fun and surprising gift idea. Though it’s sold under the Thom Browne’s men’s collection, the bag definitely has unisex appeal.

Founded as an appointment-only suit shop in 2001, Thom Browne expanded from a small business with a line of five suits to a full ready-to-wear collection in 2003. Known for re-imagining classic cuts into subversive, edgy designs, Browne received the CFDA Menswear Designer of the Year Award in 2006, 2013 and 2016. He was also named GQ Designer of the Year in 2008, and winner of the Cooper Hewitt National Design Award in 2012.
