Trilby? Check. Bow tie? Check. Bold black frames? Check. And, of course, facial hair? Check. With a little help from his stylist (and owner) Joyce Chen, Toby, a 10-year-old Maltese, has become an Instagram icon of preppy-meets-hipster chic.

Wearing an assortment of doggie duds sourced in pet boutiques—the Vancouver-based Chen usually spends between $30-$80 per outfit—Toby has amassed some 100,000 followers over the past three years at his Instagram account Toby LIttleDude, Hipster Dude with Attitude (@toby_littledude).

While Toby has been snapped sporting toweling robes, a New York Yankees' baseball shirt and cap, and sportswear, his signature look has remained snappy hats, cardigans, big glasses, and bow ties, leading to comparisons with will.i.am—only cuter.
